It’s a tough world out there. Mango Cart is all about starting a trading company. You’ve gotta deal with the bank and political interests. Also labour issues and even global economic downturns.
While not to mention balance. Between social and environmental protection. Both with profit and growth. Since it means assessing and reassessing your market position each month. Gotta keep you on your toes, right?
Also and most importantly. Avoid the various game ending scenarios. So in order to save your company, and self, from ruin. You need to keep this company going. Since jobs are at stake. While developing your own strategy.
“Mango Cart talks about the journey of a humble piece of fruit around the world,” explains developer Mauro Merati. “A journey that reveals the complexity of the economic relationships in the global community. Production, transformation, marketing. Also different chapters that link people across the oceans.
While this game gives players a chance to get into trading fruit. The chance to also position themselves in this context according to their beliefs. In the end, the mango is just a symbol.”
