This interactive game is about innovation in textile production in Britain in the 19th century. It focuses on the changes in the manufacturing of cotton, which shifted from the home to the factory with the advent of the steam engine. Students assume the role of advisor to a businessman who wants to manufacture cotton and has money to invest in establishing the enterprise. Some choices cost more than others. The businessman needs to begin selling cotton before the money runs out and he faces a debtor's prison.
