Just adding the final screen.  Working on the messages.  What do you think about the following (*1)…

“The Arctic is gone. Still, the World’s thirst for our products is still growing! There are other places to exploit for profit!”

Two buttons: “Great!” and “But…”.  Hit “Great!” to see following text:

“Right!  Onwards to the next place we can exploit!  Sadly, the rubbish developer only did the Arctic during #LD48.  Why don’t you see whether you could have made more money if you could do over!  For profit!!!”
…and the game restarts.

If you hit “But…”, you see the following:

“But <player name>, you asked for cheap fuel, electricity, plastic, etc.  I was just trying to make you happy!  Aren’t… *YOU* the villain?”

Buttons for this point?

(*1): Do blog replies notify the poster?  If not, please tweet me @Arakade — thanks!
