A remake of Afro-Ninja`s classic Newgrounds SIM! Play the original: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/236362

This originally was an idea I had last fall, got busy though. Now about sometime last month I decided to begin working on this. I did a majority of the work all in April.

The game is not finished by any means, I hope to update this as often as I can. I`ll probably work on this on and off for the next few months, I want to make this it`s own thing. I'm open sourcing the code, so anyone who either wants to see the messy insides can see. ORRR if you're feeling cool... you can contribute!

If you want to submit bug reports, suggestions, etc, you can do so by either: Posting an "issue" on the github page, PM me, or add it into your review!

Planned features:
-More Medals
-Special events such as Robot Day, Pixel Day, and Pico Day
-More stuff but I`m too lazy to write at the moment

Check out the source code: https://git.io/v9UH3
Github Issues page: https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/Newgrounds-Sim-2017/issues
And maybe I`ll post some updates and sneak peaks on my Twitter: https://twitter.com/ninja_muffin99

Current Version: 0.1.9 (September 15)
Update notes can be found on the Github releases page: https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/Newgrounds-Sim-2017/releases

I definitely appreciate the effort, but there's quite a few issues. Some things behind the scenes, but I feel the biggest problem is the graphics and general lack of animation. Then there's the BBS posts which overcomplicate the animation a bit.

Part of the appeal of NG Sim was the simplicity of it while keeping the graphical environment realistic enough and pleasant.

This isn't a flash game, I don't think. So I don't know how much flexibility you have. I would probably recommend designing the graphics a bit more realistic.

I once made a Windows 98 environment in Flash, all done by hand. There's definitely an ability to create visually appealing graphics that would be suitable for this game.

Bit difficult posting to the BBS when it says you're either banned for 2 hours, or banned for -6 hours, or some other random interval I wonder is maybe based upon the time you visit the BBS (in-game) than what amount of time is actually left... feels like a fun game otherwise, bare-bones but with not in a bad way, all the essentials are there, and if you do unlock more things along the way then all the better. Would be more realistic if you actually lose money overtime, for food and rent and stuff, and couldn't just animate all day, go to sleep, animate, sleep, animate, etcetcetc, but so far I like it! Looking forward to seeing how it changes; improves, and hope savegames will still be compatible no matter what chances there are. Nice initiative bringing this classic back to life!

Went to the internet and couldn't get out of there. No button to back out or quit it. Didn't manage to play much before it happened so can't exactly rate it though I think it's barebones atm anyway

It's Escape to return to the previous screen, but I'll add in alternative ways to do that soon.
