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.


  • Pickaxe - Improves working speed. Equipping your workers with the proper tools is extremely important for their efficiency and self-esteem.
  • Helmet - Mandatory protection equipment for diggers.
  • Coffee - Improves working efficiency, but your workers will start taking breaks when they feel like it.
  • Stimpack - Dramatically improves working efficiency. Drugs are bad.

Workers :

  • Red Worker - Costs 2 coins at the end of the day, 4 when you hire him. Severely underpaying people is very bad.
  • Orange Worker - Costs 5 coins at the end of the day, 10 when you hire him. Underpaying people is bad.
  • Blue Worker - Costs 10 coins at the end of the day, 20 when you hire him.
  • Green Worker - Costs 20 coins at the end of the day, 40 when you hire him.

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?

6000... Hum, I can do that ^^.
But I won't ;)

Yeh no problem if you want to chat about the game.
Notify me on my Discord.
See you over there.
