The game's download link seems to be broken.

Thanks @NanukkLuik for telling about the issue. It is now resolved and you can now play it.

I really liked the game idea and the balancing was well done. The graphics were a bit simplistic and I think it was too repetitiv. If you could improve the graphics and make the game more dynamic, it would be a really great game. Also there was an exit-button missing. Maybe you could have added one at the end of the game.

Hello,
i like how the game works in general since there are not too many games like these. It seems to work fine as well. I would invest some time in order to change the writing font and maybe add some backgrounds that you can stare at for some longer time.

This game was alright, but I wouldn't have minded some more things to do while I'm waiting for my investments to give me a return. Some more HUD pieces wouldn't have gone amiss, such as an on-screen timer or average happiness level. However, the game is solid and I got some fun out of it, so good job,

"Glorified spreadsheet" games can be fun, but what this one mostly needs is giving the player more information about what's happening. How much longer until I get my investment back? How much have I invested anyway? Why is citizen happiness increasing or decreasing? Is there even a difference between the three sliders, or doesn't it matter which one I raise or lower?

@thomastc I am working on the clock for time left.
The total amount invested is shown just below the invest button. You may find it 0 because either you have not invested anything or you have lost what you invested

I enjoyed the investing component. It seemed like my people were unhappy no matter what and I was always losing money, so I guess it's realistic. I didn't understand if I won or lost an investment or what the time meant.

Overall I found it frustrating; I like the type of game it is, and it is original. I don't see as much relation to the theme as other entries, but it does relate (falling profits, falling happiness etc.) Thanks for making it.

A very original take on the theme good job!

A decent take on the "Plate Spinning" genre. I would have liked to be given more information in general though, because everything seemed to be a black box. I could sometimes intuit what was going on, but not always. For investments, maybe something like a list of all previous investments and whether or not they returned with a profit. Also for the sliders, it would have been nice to know which of them were in need so I could tune it specifically. It felt a little strange that happiness is a ceiling that you can never push back up even if it worked for the theme of the jam.

This game is related to falling because falling also means lowering. Lowering and increasing things in this game is the main part of the game.
