That was pretty amazing!  I'm glad I only got 52 since, I lost everything...  So META! I wish there was an option to do some work though, so I could pay to win more!  Glad my family moved out!

Great work!

There actually is an option to do work.

(Take a look in the bottom left corner. It was kept kind of secret-ish on purpose)


EDIT: I meant bottom-right

Tricksy hobbitses... I'll have to check this out in the future!

Not sure how to place better than 53, but still an interesting commentary on gaming addiction. The sound fx were hilarious!

Thanks, man!

Wife and kids left, but I finished place 7, thanks to the power of the credit card! And my house and myslef were clean, so it's something :p

I'm not sure exactly how to rate this one.  I enjoyed the presentation and the sound effects, but the actual game confused me.  There wasn't anything for me to do other than abandon my family.  Then I just cleaned my house and randomly clicked around and nothing happened.  I advanced levels in the game but my rank never went up.  I was trying to get through to the ending, but never reached it.  

I'm not sure what the message was supposed to be.  Sorry!

Hey MiniBobbo, thanks for the feedback! 

The "rank" goes down. It is possible to get it down to 1. The credit card "pay to win" is the best way to do so.

The game ends after 60 actions (maybe we made it a bit too many), at which point an end message is displayed.

It is possible to not have your family leave you if you pay attention to them.

Thanks for playing

This game finishes in about 60 clicks, so just keep going to the end. :)
