One of the most interesting games on this jam is in all options!
Very original theme.

Very well presented and implemented art style. A good little management game. I wish there was slightly more to do other than the buying and selling (maybe some conversation options/interactions with other people). Overall a good entry.

Very cool! I just can't play in front of my kids- ha!

One question, is there something I should be doing clicking wise when it's time to run- like click the mouse fast, or something to escape?

Developer

Spam Left/Right arrow keys! :)

Here's a quick tease at the new selling and inventory screens for the updates after the competition!

So when is it coming?

The graphics and music are amazing and it has outstanding gameplay! Well done!

Developer

Hahah, I think that's the best reply yet kyperbelt...

There'll be a lot more to come as it develops, like having to fight off thugs trying to rob you, expanding your inventory, loan sharks and shady fuckery all around!

game was fun, in the end it devolved into just buying crack and finding the best spot to park so i can sell my crack  lol

Fantastic work across the board, and ironically very addicting to play! Excited to see how the full game develops.

It reminded me a lot about thecrims.com... so many hours wasted in that web site :-p

Good job!

I've "invested" a few hours in this game! Nice done! Alot of potential!

Bug with sleeping: if you go home and read messages, you immediate start sleep (click event propagation)

Thanks for catching that!

Developer

Thanks! We plan to continue to build upon the game and change up the gameplay quite a bit to make it less repetitive and more strategic!  Updates will definitely be happening after the competition!
