This is a story of unsung heroes in a white collar.

We desperately searched for works of fiction that depicted capitalism in a positive light, and since our search was fruitless we decided to write this larp.
However, there are movies and tv shows that have influenced the design and writing in various ways, such as The Devil's Advocate, The Social Network, The Departed, Promised Neverland, Don't Look Up, Billions, Suits, Thank You for Smoking, The Night Manager.
