In the middle of this story will be a book shop, which you will control from your table. Your grandpa ask support his book shop, while he is ill.
You need to support it for a sixty days, while your grandpa will be completely healthy.

Mostly you will need to support your shop, carry out tasks and avoid a situation where the amount of money below zero
There will be two type of tasks - weekly tasks (support your shop, and, if you have one, support your website) and challenges, which can add you some money.

Hire employees to solve tasks and remember, that you can fire them, but then you must pay them 1 conventional unit. Also you will pay them one conventional unit per week.

Good luck!

The game is quite simple and lacks some sudden events. I also was disappointed when no projects left, but I had to play until day 60. Dismissing half of the crew and supporting shop/site during the week was the only thing I had to do. Btw, somehow one programmer made two site maintenance tasks at the time.

About projects - it need more time to create another one's. I will do it, but later

I think I broke it, half way through the projects went away, the game locked up and the screen went slightly darker for a while like there was something supposed to appear, after rampant clicking it lightened up again and I tried to survive on weekly projects but couldn't.

Cool idea and a good direction to take. Perhaps a little too ambitious though.

Hi could you do the mac os build? In case this is done with unity or so it should be possible easily, thanks.

I frankly love incidental management games like this. While it could have used some more polish but time was a constraint for us all, but definitely it has a certain kind of charisma I like in games I play.
