Setting : Uncle John has a mining company. It’s still at the start of the business, but everything seems to be going well. He has three happy employees and has $30 in reserves. After one year of hard work, that means he is looking forward to go on a holiday. Because he has trust in you and seeks a potential successor in the family, he would like you to keep an eye on the business while he is on a trip to the nicest beaches in Jamaica. During this period of two weeks, he has given you all the rights to do anything you can to keep the company running.

5103... But I saw that you did 5400... ^^ (How o_O ? Tell me Master!)
Haha I'm glad you enjoyed the game! Our tester scored over 6000 but she won't tell me her strategy (I think she hires orange workers and uses a ton of coffee). I'd be glad to have a small conversation with you if you have time. If you are up for it, please contact me (itch, ldjam, twitter, discord...). I speak French and I think you too?
