A co-operative game about cooperative work is coming out in February.
It’s called Wrenthams Cooperative Bank.
The game is the brainchild of developer Chris Wrens, a co-founder of the Seattle-based company The Coop.
Co-founder Alex Wren says the game is about building “a network that connects businesses and their customers,” as well as people in the community.
In the game, businesses, banks and other businesses can work together to do things like hire workers, lend money or make decisions about how much to pay their workers.
Wren said the co-op was originally meant to be a hobby project for his son, but the idea took off after he started playing around with the game in late 2013.
Wreins son has since played the game a few times, and he and his partner Alex are excited to see the game get off the ground.
“We’re hoping to release the game this summer and then we’ll do some research about how it will play out,” Wren told me.
Writhams cooperative game is not a new idea, but Alex said the idea for a coop game started with a small group of players in the Seattle area.
They began a community website to share ideas about the game and to solicit ideas for co-ops, Wren’s son said.
After that, Wreinds co-creator Alex and co-founders Alex and James Wren, started to see what kinds of things people were talking about.
“One thing that we noticed in the group was that there was a strong desire to build something that could be shared across all kinds of people,” Alex Wrein said.
The Wren siblings said they were inspired to work on the project because Wren is passionate about building cooperative games.
“Our goal is to have it be a game that people can play together,” Alex said.
“There’s no barrier to entry.
We’re not looking to put a ton of money into this game.”
Wren started a small co-working space for people to work from home with no roommates or shared desks.
“The community is a huge part of the game,” Wreyns son said, noting that the Wren brothers have met a lot of different people through the coop.
“And there’s a lot more people that are playing co-operatively, because we want it to be fun and people are willing to work together for a common goal.”
The Wreinis sons work closely with Alex and the coven to create the game.
Wrienthams co-conspirators in the game design the basic mechanics of co-operation, such as hiring workers, lending money, managing employees and managing a bank.
The coop is a cooperative game that encourages the players to work as a team.
Coopers are divided into teams of four to eight people, which they all work on independently.
Wreethams game includes four different types of coops: The Coopers, a cooperative team working in different locations and using different types and types of technology to build a shared business; The Banks, an “all-inclusive” cooperative team using technology from multiple technology companies; The Credit Cooperative, an alliance of cooperators working together in one building to create a shared bank; and The Credit Credit Cooperative Bank, a banking cooperative that uses a credit card system and digital banking to provide financial services to its customers.
Alex Wreein said that the cooperative game also encourages the player to work with other cooperators, to learn from their experiences and to collaborate with other coopers to develop a common vision.
The two co-workers who work as co-coordinators in the cooperative bank will work together in the games office, where they will talk to each other.
In addition to working together, Wreeths co-cooperators can share ideas, such like whether to have their own personal finance plan or how to improve the cooperativism in the company.
“That’s a big thing,” Wree, a developer, said.
WREIN’S son said he is eager to get the game out into the world.
“It’s a very interesting idea,” Alex told me, adding that Wren and Wren have a lot in common.
“I’m a big fan of Chris and the idea he has.
I’m hoping to be able to work closely on it and help out.”
Wrenders co-worker James said that they are excited for the game’s release, and they think the game will be a success.
“People love co-opers,” James Wree told me with a smile.
“This is a cooperatively-focused game, so we think it will be very successful.”
Co-operative games can be challenging to make
