    Andris!

    Computer Tycoon sounds really cool. This is something that would catch my eye immediately :D

    I love games with old school graphics. Ridiculous Fishing, Infectonator, & Punch Quest are good examples. The graphics you have on the site are unique and interesting.

    In one of my senior business classes we played a game called Business Strategy Game (https://www.bsg-online.com/). Teams of people as "Corporations" compete selling shoes to build a global empire. The game is based on a huge number of variables, from external forces (currency rate shift, global supply and demand, change in tastes & preferences) to internal decisions (choices about the style, materials, and price of the product), and it all calculates out to who does better each week. While I wouldn't recommend the same level of complexity for Computer Tycoon, this business game could provide a lot of ideas.

    Take a look at Plague Inc. too, I also thought it might be cool to see the computer sales in Computer Tycoon work like a virus spreading across the globe.

    I think it's a great idea and I look forward to hearing more!

    Hello Finley,

    I saw your registration, and also thank you very much for your response! :)

    I already heard about bsg-online although I never tried it. Funny that I love these types of games, but somehow I'm still from those people who can be easily overwhelmed by too many details. It's a bit bad to say, but I like simpler simulation games a bit more.

    I tried Plague Inc. and I liked it a lot! Although still, it's a bit far from my game haha! I just hope that freaky people from dangerous places aren't playing and getting not enough satisfaction from it alone! :))

    Soon I'm going to post a new article! Have a nice day or evening or whatever you have when you read it! :)

    Cheers,
    Andris
