the demo gives an excellent taste of what to expect from the game, really advise anyone spending half hour on the short demo

Good. Really surprisingly good. Really easy to learn, really simple to control, but at the same time, very difficult. The gameplay is a couple of minutes of absolute stress, followed by a long satisfied rest to the sounds of ocean crashing. Super fun. Also, for those who object to it on environmentalist grounds, it does not glorify oil, and the game does, in its own subtle way, show environmentalism as part of the game's world. Oil is portrayed as a decaying option, as people are increasingly desperate to find more of it out in the ocean. Try it; you won't regret it.

I tried the demo - very fun and the elegant yet simple graphics and effective sound effects really pull you in. Can't wait to get it on Steam. Kudos!

I bumped into your game via your gamasutra blog. I am not a game developer, but I have thoroughly enjoyed following your story and rooted for you to succeed! You come across as a humble and friendly guy, and your story was truly inspiring.

I hope your game gets green lit. Best of luck to you and your team (Sara and Jonathan)!

I really want this on Steam!
Legius Dec 12, 2013 @ 5:42am 
I really like this game, can't wait till it gets greenlit.
4Ever Alone Dec 11, 2013 @ 3:50pm 
is there any demo , i want to try it first
Education Dec 8, 2013 @ 8:56am 
Seems like a wonderful game no idea why it's not on steam...
Cheesepile Nov 21, 2013 @ 5:02am 
Can't believe this hasn't been greenlit yet... already own the game and I have to say it is very addicting!
DullMind Oct 26, 2013 @ 10:04am 
I did not expect anything special out of the game before downloading the demo. As someone who actually works in the oilfield I though it would be a good laugh to try this out. It actually sucked me in for the duration of the demo and I can't wait for it be available on Steam.

Amazing demo, just waiting for it to be Greenlit...
slapum Oct 16, 2013 @ 1:46am 
Another game that I already own, why is it not Greenlit already!
Crazyraz's Trades Oct 11, 2013 @ 9:56pm 
I vote for it i tinnk is good concept of the game but i don't know i should i buy it or not.
Skylore72 Oct 7, 2013 @ 4:43pm 
Just playing the demo right now, if this is Greenlit I will definitely buy it here on Steam.
Swiper Oct 5, 2013 @ 8:49am 
:D
Riddick_X1 Sep 28, 2013 @ 11:26pm 
cool
DJUltrakiller Sep 25, 2013 @ 4:49am 
Besides the game being awesome, $7 is a wee bit underpriced, since I played it a lot, I could price it in the $12-$15 area, but I get your strategy: make it affordable on Steam so more people will buy ti.
DJUltrakiller Sep 24, 2013 @ 12:34pm 
Bought it years ago, still got it, still playing it. Besides the fact that it's a sim, it's a great way to practice multitasking, and oh boy if you reach past the first 3-4 islands, you're in for THE hardest multitasking job in a long time. The thing is that in it's current state, the game is ok, although for later islands the goals should be set a wee bit lower (due to simply crazy amounts of focus needed) or have extra days. Besides that, a very original and unique game.

The grafic is very nice
RedFiveO Sep 2, 2013 @ 2:56pm 
Love it.... Oil tycoon, but with forced time and goals. Vote yes.

Something new and original is always good. It's incredibly hard to invent something new in computer games. Respect to the creators! Definitely want to see the game available on Steam.
Zanthalas Aug 11, 2013 @ 9:11am 
Afraid that some of the comments have turned me off to voting a yes or no for this. Skipping.
Bruno Aug 6, 2013 @ 8:51am 
Great game and original setup.
Kelthan Jul 31, 2013 @ 5:07am 
Great concept. I like that this game looks and feels different than other (indie) games here on Steam. I'll most likely buy this game if/when it gets Greenlit :)

Oceans got enough pollution, dont want a boring propaganda trying to make unsustainable practices look any other than utterlly wrong.
Nukraine Jul 23, 2013 @ 4:48pm 
This game TOTALLY should be on Steam.
HorrorForTerror Jul 19, 2013 @ 6:27am 
coolllllll
[PzKpfGr.1]Lt.Gehb Jul 15, 2013 @ 1:53pm 
easy concept, that´s cool.
ShellahFellah Jul 7, 2013 @ 11:13pm 
This is very much a good game for its genre I would buy it if I was intrested in its kind of genre. It is clear lots of hard work has gone into it and it has paid out well.
NIX Jun 30, 2013 @ 12:06pm 
Cool concepts and awesome artwork!
lifesbrink Jun 28, 2013 @ 8:55pm 
So which oil company gave you a kickback for this game idea?
