This game would be really good for a discussion of autonomy. I really like the direction you took the theme.

I think I won by glitch haha. My citizen wealth was at -34 and then it said I won the game and then it started printing out variables declarations (var GOALS_LIST = [...];) I have no idea how to win! I got them up to $7 but then they plunged into poverty quickly. Oh well. This was fun and it touched on some interesting ideas about the theme. Thanks!

it wasn't a glitch, the goal changed and you were just lucky :)

edit: i guess i should mention it's a short game but dense with ideas so if you try to rush it you'd probably misunderstand what just happened.

(i.e you won, the "glitch" is part of the game)

This is neat. I had some trouble figuring it out at first, especially before I realized what exactly the goals meant, but I had some fun trying to do everything possible to meet the goals, and then being confronted with what that actually meant for the citizens. Good interpretation of the theme.

A huge "WHAT" is what i said when the game "glitched" and the goal was undefined, it was a cool game, it makes you think.
