Monopoly, no not that Monopoly

by greg20man - 48 Hour Compo Entry

"Hey there winner, wanna make all your dreams come true? Of course you do but to do that you will need money, lots of it. Choose a product and dominate that market but remember there are inherent dangers with each. As your business evolves you will have the financial strength to use new and creative tactics to come out on top."

Another photo finish! So much fun, so little sleep, learned a lot.

There are a few bugs that I didn't get a chance to fix :(
-Sorry Windows only
-Sound isn't working at all, no idea why
-Playing again after a win or a loss doesn't reset all of the data properly. It's more fixed than it was 10 min ago but I don't have another 10 min :(

Well done everyone! Can't wait for LD25 :D

Cute idea, I like the other company names, and I was hoping the goal of "hippy crap" was to go bankrupt before the other companies.

It's a cool idea, but I really wish there was more strategy to it. The product you choose doesn't really seem to matter, and the winning strategy is to just buy everything as quickly as you can, except for the fountain. The rules aren't very clear, I didn't really understand what the parking space did, or what the lab did, but I assume they give me more money. Later on I noticed there was some sort of sabotage mechanic, but you don't ever need it.

In short, it really needs some more strategic mechanics. And of course, I wish there was sound, but apparently that's a technical flaw. Not a bad for a Ludum Dare entry, most games I've played up 'till now had even less gameplay =P

Brilliant little game, full of nice little twists. Wish it was a full-featured game...

I would have tried it out if there was a web version.

I hope you will do an update, because it didn't work on my machine.
