At least this game is honest about being a demo and says so right in the title. I appreciate that.

I have to say, the concept and execution of this idea is great! (Just because something is a DEMO doesn't mean I won't give it a chance.)
My only fault with it is the saving part: personally, I don't mind it too much, but what I do mind is the exponential cost hike. Maybe keep it at a solid $250 or an autosave at some point for $1,000?

Hey everyone, thank you for checking out the game! This web version is a little experimental and I'm seeing some bug reports pop up -- I'll be working through these over the coming days.

This game uses about 80% of my total CPU alone.... a good game regardless though

I thought it was a pretty good demo, completed in about an hour and a half, with a mark of "F"
I will buy the full version upon release assuming it's priced reasonably
At one point my 'resolution' (I guess?) went down from lack of hardware on my (in-game) PC, and the effect never got removed once I purchased better hardware, so I was stuck squinting to read the text for the rest of the game.
It's challenging to balance everything out and get a good grade, but I never felt that I was in serious trouble of 'losing' and I'm not mad I got an F, honestly I take it in stride, I usually play for the experience, not to win.
The gameplay is a bit repetitive, but you have to be active enough I didn't mind
I never used the camera/data harvesting feature because I didn't think it was going to be cost-effective, or worth fiddling with given the limited time of the demo, I'd try it on the full version though.
100 Datasets is definitely enough to get a good feel and understanding of the game.
Not sure what else to say, sorry if this is just me rambling haha, I don't usually leave comments.

Perfect demo, encaptulates what this will be about... and damn this is a hard one. So many systems and things to keep track of, you often don't feel like you're going forward fully.... And all of it works due to the genuinley oppressive environment the game creates with the software. Can't wait for the full game!

honestly really cool, although saving being a feature can sometimes screw me over
chromebooks often have an issue where if a game is performance intensive for too long, whenever anything is tabbed into, it refreshes. (restart fixes this)
i say "performance intensive" but for the shaders and effects it runs at a stable 40 fps for a garbage chromebook, really well done on the gameplay loop too!

After being awarded a score of "F" right after my "FACEMINER computer" crashed, I'm noticing a few issues:
1. Something about device pixel ratios/pixel density is messing up where moving around menus goes. This is pretty annoying on a high DPI screen and it would be nice if you could fix it!
2. The performance is quite decent on poor devices, and I like the email system. However, I'm noticing that the Discord server link doesn't work for some reason. I'd love to discuss ideas and can't wait to see where the game goes eventually.
3. Another issue is that when loading a session over an already loaded one, AutoMode doesn't turn off. Upgrading it doesn't do anything until you enable AutoMode again.
Also, some ideas from me: changing OS systems for bonuses, improving surveillance camera purity, saving session cost decreasing instead of staying so high, etc.

So, i played this and got the D mark, which I understand, wasn't the best, but there are some things I want to say about this
1. the exponential upgrades get costly real quick, not just talking about saves, I mean that if I want to get a balance in power, cooling, and other stuff, I would have to get bankrupt, which I almost got.
2. You start losing money at the start, even during the tutorial, so I was reading the tutorial to understand what to do and how to do it (didn't understand I had to click images with clear faces on them), and when I finished reading it all, I had gotten a warning I'm in debt, and had to start over again, because I didn't but anything to sell
3. I like that the music player lets you add your own songs and music, but I didn't use it much.
4. at one point, the email glitched, and started saying all the messages at once, and oh god was it torture. and speaking about the email, I have gotten three copies of one email in a row, while I understand its the other people using faceminer, but the emails saying that it took them months to get to the end of the trial, and don't have much money, while I'm done under an hour with 15K on my card, is weird
The game is great nonetheless, great concept, good-ish execution, could get more optimized, but I will look at the progress with admiration
