Well I gotta say I do enjoy this game, especially with the bonuses on the soft resets. I currently have a 3.62Million % bonus which is making it fly by now, I'm actually make over $12Dec/sec lol. That does make it a problem though, because it was actually pretty simple to do this, I spent at most 3 in game days on each reset, just raking in money from the farm then soft resetting and powering through quicker and quicker each time. My first reset was at about 100% bonus which helped a lot, but then after getting the farm again my next reset was around 750% bonus, then 10,000% bonus then pretty quickly into the millions after that. I did enjoy this game, but like others said it can be a little too short especially with the bonuses becoming exponentially higher with each reset. Still a fun play though and I'm sure you'l be improving as you continue to make games.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the concept of neoliberalism. This game captures what it's like to be the 1%, the rich elite, and I find this so great. Let me explain. Maurizio Lazzarato writes a book called "Governing by Debt". He expands on Foucault's idea of the "apparatus" of control, talking about the the way big business keeps expanding, finding new ways to take money from the consumer, roughly speaking. He tells us on page 37, "Apple... holds more than %81 billion in offshore accounts, Microsoft %54 billion, Google $43 billion, and Cisco $42 billion." He elaborates on this, saying that these companies can't expand faster than the money they're making. They're sort of stuck in a sense so they start hoarding their money somewhere safe. A treasure box so to speak. Here I played this game, and I kept expanding into new business. It kept being exciting, I wanted to expand, I wanted to go back and make my old businesses better. I felt like the people were just a bunch of ants bringing me pieces, feeding me. But then there was an end. I reach the oil, the most profitable piece of ass out there. So I stayed there, at the farm and the oil, just making money, and putting money back into my farms. In all honesty I was bored, but some part of me stayed hooked. I just wanted to keep feeding into my business and filling my money bags. I really felt at this point like the rich elite of today, just hoarding my money and not giving back. And in all honesty, I was ready to do anything to switch up the game plan, anything to get my hands into new business.

I wonder if you should add a new part of the game where you literally have to save a TON for the next business, but once you get it, you can bribe lobbyists to legalize genetically modifying your cows so they produce double the milk or the corn to produce more. You could eventually start giving loans and upgrades that could raise the interest. Your lobbyists could upgrade your loans to stop bankruptcy from affecting your own loans or having your loans take directly from people's paychecks each week. I don't know, I felt like a rich elite businessman here and I wonder if adding these things would really push that feeling even further, but you'd have to make that a point you reach only after letting it idle for a day or two, to reach a point where you're bored with your stockpile, to really find the mindset of the %1.

There should be a medal for getting all the achievements in the game, but beyond that...I wasted so much of my time on this game...

Should add a feature where you can level all of your animals in the farm by a certain number (1, 5, 10, 25) , maybe even have a slightly extra cost for the sake of efficiency.
