What Happens When A Finance Company Makes A Video Game

Ansarada is a finance company that makes so-called "virtual data room" software—a web client that allows the partners in a merger or acquisition to disclose confidential information as part of the due diligence process. I know, I'm bored too.

Next week, however, Ansarada launches M&ADE, which they are billing as the world's first mergers and acquisitions game.

And if the trailer is to be believed, this game is better than cocaine.

It's basically like living inside The Wolf of Wall Street.

You're gonna walk all badass towards a sick fuckin chopper


This game is epic. It's where legends are made.
