hopeless startup simulator, made for the Profectus Creation Jam, and won first place... somehow??

Everybody has some great ideas for the future, but not everybody wants to do the work to get there.

"this crazy idea" puts you in the role of a programmer as their friends and family barrage them with startup ideas, that are all so mind-numbingly stupid that they're doomed to fail.

But... you're a nice person, right? You wouldn't say "no" to a good friend.

Or would you?

Can you break the cycle?

It took me way too much time to realize that all you need to do is to ignore the marketing and dump all the code into features

The javascript alert whenever you go to begin a new startup takes you out of full screen every time. Very annoying
