I think, this game could be a gem. Short simple entrepreneurial game with great theme and amazing artwork. Anybody have an idea why is so little interest about it here?

Personally, it's a combination of a) Not needing more enterprise building games b) Never played the old computer game c) It's being done by MayDay games.

I did play the old computer game, and I think of it as a kid's toy, and so I would expect (rightly or wrongly) this to be a kids game, which I'm not interested in.

I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

I have a bit of filler glut in my collection and I don't have much spare cash for kickstarter supporting around the holidays.

It looks like a filler game and I have enough games in that category.
My girlfriend would likely say I have more than enough games in any category...
But it looks fun and I hope they manage to get it made. I would love to try it one day, but there is just no more room in my gaming closet...

I'll give you two reasons:

1) No video. Basically a crime - why bother.
2) Not one update to campaign.

A Kickstarter project is like a garden - must be tended to.

Personaly, unless playing an abstract, Im often playing a game for the same reasons we read books, watch movies etc. Im in it for the escapism. I wanna conquor armies, build kingdoms, shoot zombies, err run the national grid. I cant imagine getting excited about selling lemonade. Looks good, just not for me.
Unless the sellers sabotage one another with poison and such like.Then id be all "ooh sneeky."
Wheres the drama?
and as a kid I felt pretty similar about the escapism. If i was playing a bidding cardgame or similar id probably try play poker or pontoon with matchsticks instead of something clearly designed to be "for the kids".
Im sure your game is great. Just not for me.

Well you are right about the video and updates, they are long overdue. We got busy with Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales and just got behind on stuff. We have both now! We have also just sent a demo copy of the game to Tom Vasel for a video review, that should certainly generate some interest, for better or worse.

Thanks for the interest here at least, the game should get funded though, it really is quite good!

Why are not all our games interest?
