Carter Sande is just trolling us all at this point, I believe.
Last year, his game Let's Explore Geography! Canadian Commodities Trader Simulation Exercise was a tongue-in-cheek take on edutainment game. He spent a long time in the forums going back and forth on whether his game was actually edutainment or not, and it's still a little hard to tell.
This game has you clicking on a jpg island map to get help in different areas, in addition to taking small mini-tests of three questions at a time.
The tests are a bit hard (and I swear the compound interest one is wrong!). The little story segments between are more story-based and more clearly Interactive Fiction, but they honestly wouldn't be out of place in a real edutainment game.
The only place I found anything odd was (Spoiler - click to show)the very end, where there was no 'end game' link, and I scrolled down and found I 'missed something'. I noticed the replay this time was different, but not significantly so.
I then followed the walkthrough, the game went all (Spoiler - click to show)Zalgo, and the end result convinced me more than ever that Carter is trolling us all. I did reach a final The End after (Spoiler - click to show)destroying the obelisk.
Why 4 stars, not 5? Because, and this is written in my heart:
"Simulated Boredom is Still Boredom"
Otherwise, I had a good time.
Uninteresting, even when it's not trying to be, November 19, 2019
It starts out as a mostly boring edutainment simulator (with occasional bits of not-very-sharp commentary), then detours into crazy town in a way that's still pretty boring. I don't know what the point of any of it was.
I didn't play Let's Explore Geography! Canadian Commodities Trader Simulation Exercise, which might have put some of the later developments into context, but after this I'm not particularly inclined to.

These beasts won't feed themselves. A puzzleless exhibition. Ten to fifteen minutes.
