This one was amazing! Except perhas the sounds/music, everything in this game is nice and fun. Maybe you should try to equilibrate a little more the prices, tho!

Really like the idea and the style, music got a little annoying but overall a great game.

Use the button with the question mark to open the tutorial ;-)

Dec 13, 2016 @ 8:54pm

Nice ambiance, but it's a very hard game (hopfully the tutorial is well done, it helps a lot) !

Love the artwork, great sense of mood. Dark, so, so dark - but good execution (bah dum dum tiss).

The game is flawless :D! The contrast between audio and graphics/idea is great. It gets hard maybe too quickly, but this might be a goal. And - nice tutorial.

Wow, that game.. really dark, but also fun as well. I really think that the idea was great, commentary on our world.

Great game, if a tad horrifying! The mechanics were all smooth and the art, music and design all came together to a clever and immersive piece of commentary.

Brilliant job! :D

Great concept, a bit morbid. :) But hard. Graphics and the souns are nice.

Great graphics and a really neat idea to fit the theme. Didn't expect to find a game with such a strong message.

My only gripe is that it is pretty difficult. I go bankrupt really fast and there's not much feedback to see when workers get sick, tired or die. With a little bit more feedback and difficulty tweaks, this would be better in my opinion.

Congratulations!

Really good graphics and take on the theme. The tutorial was really helpful to understand the mechanics. I found that the difficulty was ramping up really quickly. Keep up the good work!

Even if it is pretty hard.

Fun and cruel game. It's always interesting to force the player to be an immoral asshole. The contrast with the fun music, and the cruelty of the game works really well.

As some people pointed out, it's quite hard, and there might not be enough feedback on the state of the children, make it a bit difficult to read the game fast enough.

Kinda reminds of a papers please style atmosphere. very oppressive and stark. Good work!
