Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I would probably derive a lot more pleasure from the game if spendings wouldn't creep up, because it means every time I age a year I need to open a window, find the mistake, fix it and repeat. It's just tedious.

    I have self-control. Why can't anyone else in this game? Maybe if it were tied to some stat like Happiness or Conscience or something.

    Seriously. I'm done with this game, thanks to that. It's just way too annoying to put up with for a game of this entertainment value.

    Theres an "emigrate" option.

    In that life I was able to go to college, move to Calgary and become a doctor, but died at age 61 due to an epileptic seizure. Ah well, it was a good life. Despite my daughter having a baby and then continuing to live with us for five years.

    Haha this game is crazy. I spend 20 years in Ecuador before amassing a billion ecuador bucks and moving to the united states and getting a degree in physics and becoming a scientist. Dieing at age 81 in a huge mansion from a heart attack. Probably from all the drugs and booze...

    It's so easy to be super rich though.

    I do the same thing with high risk stock only for some reason... there is no real risk, 80% of the time my money triples.

    I've found high risk stock doesn't really go anywhere, it just hovers around the initial investment..

    This game is just frightening. There was a very rich attractive woman my character was dating, who wouldn't marry me. She never broke up with me, just wouldn't marry. Something about it being "Too soon".

    So what do I do?

    I get her pregnant.

    She wasn't so reluctant to wed after that. :D

    Just an update. The 2010 version of this game has been released:

    http://www.educationalsimulations.com/products.html?PHPSESSID=233aa0b68559dcdc4cd997f3ef9e05a2

    Has new graphics, UI, and other stuff, I imagine.

    Damn, this is an old thread. It was a bit of a shock to see it here!

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    Man, all I can remember from this game is that abusing the hell out of law enforcement positions is the best way to survive in most of these places.

    Actually just finished a good round:
    Spoiler:

    Her political activism led to her facing police trouble all her life, and not once did she get any real jail time. Ended up an alcoholic due probably to the police constantly interrupting her life, causing her to loose several jobs. Died happy, leaving a significant amount of money to her husband and daughter.

    She made a killing investing in stocks and land, tho she didn't live long enough to enjoy the cash. Shame :(

    I made a character in real lives where I lived the life of a chinese woman born in poverty in some rural part of china who later moves to Korea and becomes a millionaire from being a part of the fashion industry.

    It was the first and only time I played the game. I want to keep it that way, as to preserve my memory of the experience.

    OK. Finally got this game to be legible. Just set the color scheme to "high contrast black" and you could finally read everything. Perhaps they should consider making the game's color scheme independent of window's color scheme. The default vista colors and windows classic colors even make the thing impossible to read. That makes no sense.

    I was born a musically gifted girl in India.

    I was jailed for 3 years at the age of 15 because I protested the government and refused to sell out my friends.

    Then I moved to Canada and my family accumulated a net worth of nearly 1 million CAD, thanks largely due to my shrewd investments in land and mutual funds.

    But at my family's urging I tried to get a job.

    But I was passed over for the job of "beggar" because of my prior felony conviction.

    Yeah my interest in the game died out pretty quickly.

    You are born an intelligent and somewhat musically gifted girl in India. Your father sexually molests you. He does it again. HE DOES IT AGAIN. You have contracted *some crazy crap*. You have been removed from school. All three times I was born in India, lol, then the game just stops. And they want $30! Not happening. Anybody got a link to the old version?

    Let me tell you about Gopa Soedjakmoko and how she went from being a destitute 15 year old political dissident to exiting this world as the Shoe and Boot Repair Queen of Canada, donating over $100,000 CAD per month to charity with just over $20 million CAD in the bank.

    The funniest one I had while just clicking through not doing anything was

    "Your mother has been raped"
    "Son born"

    I didn't have a relationship at the time.

    India has a HUGE molestation problem within families. Last I checked it was around 80% for girls and 60% for boys or something.
