With the repeal of net neutrality rules you are the new big data, data throttler. Not all data is equal. Do your job and follow the company policy!

Read company emails to get the latest policy changes. Throttle, boost, or disconnect customers in accordance with the current rules.

Created in 48 hours for Global Game Jam 2018. The theme was "Transmission".

I did not like this game... I LOVED IT! You have the same general theme of Papers Please, where you check everything to see if it matches up. Boost is allow, throttle is Deny, and Disconnect is DETAIN!
This game is really fun though! I saw one of my favorite You-tubers play this (Go check out the Kubz Scouts) and it seemed fun. Seeing this on Newgrounds made me all like "Oh. My. God." Either way, this game had quality game play, a good general theme, and was just overall fun to play. I recommend this for anyone who is looking for a good quality game, you just a game that is just fun to play! Keep up the good work CosmicAdventureSquad!

I really liked this game. One issue I ran into was not knowing what 'services' counted as streaming, or gaming, and so on. In most cases it was obvious from the name of the service, but some it was more ambiguous. I think it would be good to have the services clearly identifiable (maybe color coded? ex; blue for streaming, red for gaming, grey for reg. browsing...).

Overall, it's a great concept with a really good execution. Nice job.

Good idea, demonstrating what is net neutrality. However there are few flaws:
1) SImple logic, not working with factors combination. For example user overused traffic, but limitless resources will be boosted
2) After winning hardest day, I get several simple days with only traffic and sponsor resources policies. I would prefer observing ending after hardest level (instead of just having set of trivial levels).
3) Moreover it is unreasonable calm about 'peaceful' not-neutral net
Deserves fair 4/5
