@chrisjantzen: Sorry. I should have included instructions. So, you start off with random number of cattle, and $10000. Random companies offer you random deals for cows, but if they demand more cattle than you have and you accept the offer, then you lose (since you don't have enough cattle). Also, the price projection shows how much the price of cattle will rise or fall, so you can strategize when to buy or sell.
Maybe I don't get it.. Why does it start off offering to buy more cattle than I have and asking to sell me more cattle than I have money for? And the 1 time i was able to actually buy cattle it goes "x company was able to clone cattle driving down the price so you ran out of money"
@chrisjantzen: In addition, the amount of money you have decreases over time, unless you sell your cattle or receive a salary, since you need to spend money to take care of your cows. So what I think happened most likely was the price of cattle decreases at the exact same time you ran out of money to maintain your cattle.
@oliviamurphy: Well I was starting the game with 1500 dollars and like 16 cattle so it was actually impossible to play because no offer ever came that was trying to buy fewer than 16 or sell to me for less than 1500. I mustve just been getting very unlucky with the RNG a few times in a row.
after every turn could you print the player's total net worth, including the worth of the cattle? nice game btw
