This edutainment game will teach you about the world of cryptocurrency trading.</p> <p>Inhabit the persona of any of seven different moguls -- six colorful animal mascots who just made their own ICO, and Zaurg, an everyman who just wants to strike it rich with his retirement fund. Choose one and receive constant informative commentary from the other six. Sometimes only the other five -- Zaurg doesn't comment much. Seethe as they jeer at you and relish their downfall.</p> <p>This game has two end states. If you get one, why not try for the other one? </p> <p>Different trading strategies will affect the game outcome. The coin prices follow a standard model for stock prices, augmented with additional rules to capture cryptocurrency market behavior and adjust the difficulty. (For minimal cheating on the part of the game, play as Zaurg.) In addition, NPC commentary is influenced by your trading strategy, and one end state can only be reached by an entire day of optimal trading.</p> <p>The soundtrack consists of five tunes including a chorale and a fugue. Not all tunes can be heard in every playthrough.</p> <p>Made specifically for Zaurg's personal finance thread on SomethingAwful.</p> <p>Music by Zekka -- art and text by Zekka and a dozen swans -- code by Zekka -- testing by Frank West.</p> <p>(This is my first PICO-8 game, so sorry about the low production values!)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30829 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30829 Sun, 25 Feb 2018 02:29:25 UTC
