One small problem I've noticed is that the calculation for the value of the game might need some tweaking. At first glance, it looks like I could put all my points into design and get a good payout for a 40/0/0/0 over a 10/10/10/10 game. Maybe change the equation to something like Sqrt(D^2+C^2+S^2+G^2) to encourage a well rounded game.

Developer response from nadiakasper24

Technically speaking, a game with 40/0/0/0 will net you the same amount as a 10/10/10/10, as the current algorithm is D+C+S+G/4. It is designed to work in unison with the skills so that each game produced can reach higher plateaus based on purchased upgrades and skills. The statistical probability of successfully increasing any of the game's four parameters is proportionate to the skill level (not counting upgrades) leaving you with a dwindling chance of success, the higher the parameter goes over the base skill. So, while the profit for a 40/0/0/0 game is the same as a 10/10/10/10, the time required to create the 10/10/10/10 will be statistically shorter, depending on skill levels. All of that being said, I will try out your formula, play test it a bit, and if I like the way it plays, it will definitely be implemented. Thank you for the feedback.

Finally got an enhancement point. I'll put it into +gold, even if I only get 1 extra gold per kill, that'll be a big difference... +0.1 gold per kill. hooray

Developer response from Deanomyite

You gain .5 gold for each level you fight at. I know it doesn't seem like a lot but with treasure chests gold will add up fairly quickly.

Can you provide a paytable for the Slot Machine, one sorta like on a real one? Also, it'd be nice if you listed the coin denomination for the machine ($10).

This isn't the first hashi game, it doesn't have the most features either. But the interface is neat and easy to use, it just looks great!

I wonder if the crew has nicknamed the AIV Kitty Hawk the "S****y Kitty" just like the real CV-63 Kitty Hawk

The name for the "Natural Cellection" badge is ironic considering that the scientists consulted for this project are vehemently opponents of teaching evolution. From Dr. Dewitt's page at Liberty University "Dr. DeWitt is a biochemist and neuroscientist whose passion is to defend creation using The Word of God. When not pointing out the flaws in Darwin's theory, Dr. DeWitt is investigating the inner workings of the brain."

Loved the Narraration. I'd love to hear a reading of HP Lovecraft's "The Nameless City" along with puzzles and creepy music.

I really liked the music. If not for the music I don't think the parody would be nearly as good.

First, I suspect that one can actually reach 100% I doubt Tukkun has much more than 10 or so digits of accuracy, at some point it's going to have to either stay at ...999 or jump up to 100%. The alternative is that at a certain point you aren't at 100% and you don't even get a fractional improvement.

Tukkun, can you add comma separators for the gold and experience bars? It's not too bad for 5 digit numbers but when it gets up to 8 digits it's hard to tell whether I have 6 million or 60 million.

Please don't nerf the Christmas set. I'm finally making some decent money! Congrats on doing so well in the contest! Sometimes I wish I knew how to program instead of only knowing how to fix old timey radios.

Right now my cost for a progress boost is 115000, the price for all three is only 10200. Something is a little funky with the formula here!

Your games would really do a lot better if you would finish them. This isn't a game for young people, this is an incomplete game. Add a title screen, add instructions (in the game) add sound/music. Add something to measure progress, it's okay if it's easy but you should track balloons popped or award points.
