This looks fabulous

Art style and the charm of the game are really great.
It's a surprisingly deep resource management game where you do much more than I expected. You determine what you stock in your stores, the price of the items, whether you get insurance, what percentage you invest, how much you pay your workers, how much you spend on marketing (and how you market), ehether you expand your store, etc.
each of these things have multiple results, and really effect how well you do.
For instance - you have to find the perfect wage to pay your workers. Pay them too much and they'll get lazy and your profits will suffer. Pay them too little and their moral will go down which decreases productivity, and they may strike.

for free I can easily recommend trying it out.

I see no ads or IAPs btw

The more I play this the more I become addicted.
Definite gotw contender for me.

I guess the freemium elements weren't working the first day I played it.
Now it only allows 10 turns per day unless you buy the full game (which is a very fair way to make the game free), and there are a few (extremely rare) ads here and there.

So please don't let the freemium aspects keep you from trying this. They are both very fair and unobtrusive.

LavaMind is a name I haven't heard in quite a while. I'm guessing it's the same people who made gazillionaire III which was a fantastic buy/sell market game. Certainly will check this one out.
