Not if you co-op'd into an accounting "Tycoon" game and hire one of them to do that for you.

Then all you have to worry about are the AI underwriters that want to take on high-risk customers at low-risk premiums.

Well I guess the jig is up. Half the projects I propose on here are jokes, well, because I have real work to do

But this sounds fun. I do intend to finish up that database of mine. Maybe port some of that to SQLite and use that as part of the engine for Insurance Tycoon 2000.

Well, I finally have time to actually work on this since I'm not going to have any exams in the foreseeable future. Is this link working for you? I bought the domain yesterday, so it still might be propagating:

<3 hopeless game making. Sounds fun.

The one real-life-job like game I've wanted to make is a data-analytics game.

Basically you would have to solve crimes using SQL-lite or something.

I've got the development blog up and running...which was a real pain in the ass. It took a few hours to even get the template page to display correctly. I'm a new user to Jekyll so a lot of how this thing works is foreign to me, but here it is:

And, if you want to know how much this thing costs, you can head on over to the project finances page, added for transparency:
