Supply Chain, a free and open source game developed to hopefully generate some thought and discussion about supply chains and their issues.

Developed by Cheeseness, who also made the wonderful Hive Time (and sometimes a contributor here), it takes a look at how highly optimised, just-in-time supply chains can be susceptible to disruption. A very on-point game and discussion to have, like what we saw earlier this year with all the Coronavirus panic buying.

It's quite a casual game that takes a somewhat laid-back approach to the subject, keeping it friendly and approachable. Giving what they say is an "abstract and easy to understand overview of the supply chain between producer and consumer".

You can customize the experience a little too. The behaviours can be adjusted by making modifications to some of the game files if you wish to play around with it. On top of that, the source code which is a Godot Engine project is also available on GitLab under the MIT license.

Check out Supply Chain free on itch.io.

This reminds me of how long it takes for clothing to come from overseas. My mother taught me that one of the reasons outlet stores exist in the U.S. is because buyers (stores) order merchandise that takes months before it arrives. Once it finally arrives, it might be the wrong season for the clothes or maybe not enough of existing stock sold yet, so they send the excess or out-of-season clothes to outlet stores.
