A cool game which changes in character as it goes: you start with nothing and gather and upgrade your way to managing a group of workers and building your own tycoon. In the end you will have helped a gnome who found himself in a pinch on his way from rags to riches.

The game features original gameplay, two difficulty settings and in-game leaderboards for players to compete for the best completion time.

It took me a few tries, but eventually I discovered the secret was to build a pier and get a worker fishing on it asap and to keep him there, then build a fireplace and get a worker in there smoking fish. Get a worker collecting wood and then feed yourself and the workers on the fish and sell the smoked fish at the shop. Just buy worms, its much faster than getting them yourself and once you upgrade the fishing pole to level 3 you wont have to worry about not having enough food for yourself or workers. Then build a farm and a brewery and once that's working get a store house and a restaurant. If you have the Gnome doing all the work then your playing it wrong, the way to win is to delegate tasks to your workers. The Gnome should spend most of his time at the bench sending workers where they need to go, or in the shop buying more seeds and worms.

All that aside I hope the Gnome gets back on his feet. :( I hope you make another game like this as it was a great management sim. :D

Amazing game. I love it. Very well done. I can't figure out why, but kinda' reminds me of the original snes version of SimCity. Fiver for you!

What a great game!
It is a little hidden gem: the first few minutes seems a bit of a grinding, but this adds greatly to the overall experience - you really feel like you have risen from nothing to greatness. And it has a lot of nice things: collecting resources, upgrading, selling, buying and even managing your own team of workers :)
If it seems slow - give it a few more minutes - man does it get suspenseful by the end - you find yourself in a rush over the best road to take.
I'm hooked !!! a solid 5

Really cool management game with nice upgrade dynamic and interesting strategic components.
Platform-style interface is quite fun - you feel the rush -, but could have used more polish.
