You know those flash (?) games on free websites and others where you do menial tasks repeatedly and progress to doing a bunch of menial tasks at the same time? The goal is to continuing doing these things to gain points/money to progress to having to do more things at a time.
i.e. feeding fish, making food in a fast food restaurant, maybe watering plants?
Terrible explanation, I know.
My question is: how much time/effort/money would need to go into one of these things, and what platform would they be developed on? I'm looking into possibly making one as a marketing tool, but I really don't know the first thing about game development -- just how to beat 'em.
