I think I'd enjoy your review more than the game, William. The review makes the game sound hilarious but I think the tedium of stamping would get to me after a while. It seem more like something that should have been more the mobile market than PC and Mac.

'Ministry of income'... :lol:

Yes, I remember gaming in the 80's so the visuals don't put me off. I might give this one a shot as it sounds outright surreal. 80'es were indeed full of a plethora of whacky and unusual games (because 'aaa' titles were unheard of and you didn't need a mortgage back then to create riskier titles).

Any general feedback about the reviews? What needs to change or be improved upon? Are they too short?

Personally I think they're perfect. So no changes needed as far as I'm concerned.

Although... on Facebook you could be less shy about sharing the official WW posts. If your wife can do it, so can you. ;)

Yeah, well, I don't send out those team emails for nothing... although it usually feels like I do. ;)

I've been thinking of posting on all of the forums in steam for the games themselves, to see what people think.

Do it!!! :D

When all the promoting is solely on my shoulders it makes it more of a task (with limited avenues) than an enjoyable artsy endeavour amongst friends. Many hands make light the work and all that.

Very good review!

Tried the beta or demo. Well, it was not that fun to be honest and I always ended up fired. Like Joseph say! You make the game sounds awesome :D
