A business simulator is a unique subject that is not seen often in video games. Plus it's also unique in that it will inform about how the real world of business works, therefore it will be a great oportunity to learn about the subject to actual beginning entrepeneurs and curious people, while they are having fun playing it.

Also since knowledge is power, it will be a great way to give more power to people so that they can have more freedom to add value to society in a positive way.


Comparison with other business games:

While other business games focus on construction of buildings, this one will focus on people relationships in the contexct of business.

It will have many similarities between games like Democracy 3, Crusader Kings 2, Football Manager 2014, Capitalism 2, etc.

Also, almost all other business games focus on big scale businesses, multinational corporations, and so on. But this game will focus on starting from 0 a small business, with no or few employees, start-ups, and similar.

We did a crowdfunding campaign years ago, it failed.

This time, the plan is to make a demo/prototype to show it to some publishers, in order to get funding for a small group of developer, so we can work completing this game full time.

We are aiming to have a playable prototype by the end of december of this year (2016), and have been working on it since July (2016).
