(x/post) Try to appease an AI with procedurally generated Tom Hanks movies.  This was cute!  I think it worked better than some of the other ones I've played like this before and the shop added some nice incentive and atmosphere.  The Peek tool is especially neat because so often in these types of games you're not exactly sure what went wrong.  Pretty comfy and worth a look.

I didn't really understand what I was supposed to be doing. I just picked the best movie for each day based on if one of the genres matched and bought skills with points if I had any.. Were there any decisions to make beyond that, really? I won pretty quick with this strategy, maybe I missed something.

I may have made pleasing the AI a little easy, but you got the basics of it. I wanted to try working with a system that rewards you for messing up, and I did not want the game to drag on. 


tHank you for playing.
