Sacrifices are not always the ones we expect.

What should you sacrifice? Gold? Your Uncle’s respect? Your workers well being? The choice is yours!

GOAL Maximize your final score!

Genre: Strategy

Controls: Mouse Only

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.

Shop:

  • 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.

I will implement a leaderboard in a post-jam version, but in the meantime you can post your score in the comments if you want to share it.

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.
