The Last Survey is a narrative essay game about a geologist contracted by a Brazilian mining company to survey rare earth metal reserves. Their research has found that there is not enough metals on the planet to sustain growing industries of green energy and you must deliver these findings to the company's CEO.

Based on studies by nickel and silver prospectors, geoscientists, and mineral analysts, recent findings show there isn't enough mineral material on the planet to sustain the current rate of electric car, high efficiency fuel cell, and solar paneling manufacturing.

Will your choices help steer the direction of your employer away from global mineral fatigue? Or will the urgency of your research fall on unsympathetic ears?
