IPSim

IPSim is an online competitive multiplayer real-time strategy game for Mac and PC, where players manage a company that trades in Intellectual Property. The objective of the game is to win by amassing the most cash and most valuable technologies through co-operation and competition with other players.

The game takes place on an isometric map where commercialisation activities are physically represented by buildings and territories with different economic strengths that add depth to the moment-to-moment gameplay.

Teaching IP Management

Management and commercialisation of Intellectual Property are not easily taught using traditional means. These concepts are not particularly difficult to understand, the problem is in presenting them in a way that engages learners, and stimulates strategic thinking.

IPSim: The Solution

Our solution with IPSim, was to build a multiplayer role-playing game that mirrors the competitive nature of real business, and the strategic commercialisation of Intellectual Property. You learn the fundamentals of Intellectual Property management by trading and negotiating with peers, and experimenting with different variants of Intellectual Property.

You assume control as CEO or CFO of a knowledge-based company that develops technologies and commercialises IP in return for IP royalty incomes. The objective of the game is to win by amassing the most cash and most valuable technologies through co-operation and competition with human or AI controlled company’s – whilst minimising the risk of being sued for infringement and maintaining a competitive IP advantage over other companies – ultimately being able to create an exit at the end of the sim. A successful and strategic company amasses securely protected IP tech that’s commercialised in all territories as well as IP that’s used for blocking or trading purposes.
