Jort Inc. Made a game called potato boy. It’s production budget was $4. Its marketing budget was $2. It was sold for $500. Jort Inc. Made $20,000 off it. I am possibly qualified to make a successful game company.

WOW, This game is not at all realistic, but thats what made it really fun!
you could literately just say spend $1 on marketing, $1 on production and spend 1 month on development, then sell it for 100 million buks each, and 15 billion people will buy it! making you infinite cash!

i would like it if you could make a setting int he start of the game to go either realism, or fantasy, and if you could add a upgrade shop and a bit of a story line that would be great!

without being funny, if you were to make this a literal game you could buy off steam, i would buy it. thanks for the good python game @Viaticboss19

Profile icon
Viaticboss19

@stubaduble Thanks man, yeah the Algorithm certainly isn't perfect, but it was the best I could come up with without spending weeks on it. I'm not too educated on topics like Calculus so it was quite hard to make the equation but I think it's fine for what it is.
As for the other ideas, they're quite interesting, though I doubt I'll be updating this, if I ever do create another game, these are all things I will certainly think about adding.
Thanks man. :D
