Really interesting - would be cool to read the story and see if some things I read into the game from its mechanics are there in the original.

Really good, has a papers please feel to it. It would be nice though if you could make up little stories to go with the requests, to make it more involving.

Thanks for the Windows version SnoutUP! Worked great for me, although the help key didn't do anything.

I liked the idea, although it seems like population only increases outside of the player's actions which makes it pretty easy to keep stable. Since the story is about some "off the books" deaths, it might make sense to randomly decrease the population once in a while as well. Considering the ending to the story, though, maybe the goal is not just to keep the population stable but to maximize the number of newborns entering the population as well?

Windows version:


I tried to make a HTML5 for you too, but for some reason it didn't work resulting in some weird meaningless error.

Thanks for your interest, Jupiter! Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any free versions of Game Maker for Windows, but if you already have Game Maker, you're welcome to try downloading the .gmk file and it may still work.
