Preloaded have recently completed and launched a new game, ‘High Tea‘, for the Wellcome Collection as part of the High Society exhibition.

In this strategic plate-spinning game, you play an independent British smuggler selling opium in China’s Pearl Delta. Buy cheap and sell high to make a profit, but make sure you also obtain enough tea to keep Britain happy. You have ten years before the opium wars begin – can you make your fortune? Based on historical events, this game also shines a light on a questionable episode in the history of the British Empire.

Playable in your browser this is a great way to fill fifteen minutes.  Play the game here.
