The Financial Times has created an Uber game, a SIM style quest to see if you can make any money as an Uber driver in San Francisco.
The twists and turns in the game are based on real driver interviews. I managed to pay the mortgage and be home to help with homework on my first go.
This game says 2 things to me:
1. It is tough in the Gig Economy when you factor in all of the things you need to do as a self-employed driver
2. The fact that a major business publication has made a game based on one of the most polarizing companies of this generation speaks volumes for the world we are living in.
