Steam Summer Sale/What's Next

Hey fellow Capitalists!

Today marks the first day of the Steam Summer Sale! There are tons of great deals to be found from many awesome developers, so make sure you take a look and see what's out there for you!

We have a limited time DLC pack available for those who are interested, and can be found here:

Outside of the Summer Sale, we're currently working on our 4.0 Release, which will hopefully go live within the second half of July. Within this update, you'll find some end game Earth balance tweaks we've been working on! We're going to try to "fill in the gaps" a bit to help with some of those accumulation deserts.

Until then, take care and best of luck with your investments!

Yes it's an alright game, a lot like facebook games, except it doesn't show paid features in front of your face. Good for wasting time.

Most addictive, pointless video game I've ever played.

didn't know there were cheats....what's the point of cheating in a game like this?

anyways...it's free, so buy it.

This game is a scam. I\'m sad to say this because I did enjoy the game for a while. But I think like many people, I played the game for a long time before realizing that eventually you get to a point in which progressing is literally impossible.

I don\'t mean that progressing gets tedious and you\'re pretty much forced to choose between paying money for the game or doing something incredibly dull for a long time to feel like you didn\'t waste your effort getting to that point.

I mean that the game becomes literally unwinnable. You can\'t get all the achievements or in-game collectibles/purchases. Even if you pay real money on the game. Even if you spent over $1000 of the game, you will become literally unable to progress. Many people have done the math and it takes something like 30,000,000 years to complete the game. Of real-time. So unless you are immortal and honestly think this game is going to be around that long along with Steam and achievements, you\'re not going to finish it. Ever. And it seems like the developers are really reluctant to own up to this.

Many people have mental disorders or are just otherwise weak-willed and will get addicted to games like this and feel obligated to spend money. The fact that the developers make it so no matter what the game ends up impossible to progress and you can never reach your goals is just gross. They are well aware of the problem and just don\'t care. They make excuses and pretend like they\'ll eventually fix it but they never have. I can\'t express how horrible I think this is.

I don\'t care that it\'s free. Do not download this game.

A popular circle jerk people have is how hard the Water Temple is to beat in The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. The many different rooms and levels one must complete to pass the level is astounding. While although difficult to complete - The Water Temple can be beaten and the game may progress. Hyper Hippo - on the other hand - decide to make their game, Adventure Capitalist, nearly impossible to beat unless you either spend a horrendous amount of money or alternatively wait literally thousands of years (DiMono, 2015).

This game is free, mildly addicting and fun to SOME extent. You can see how you progress and can look forward to the events that come around once a month. But that's all it really is, just click around a few times a day and grind until the event comes around. After a while of waiting, the game becomes really dull.

But there is something really good about it - it's nature is true to the core. If you've never been to a casino, go to one now and look at the Pokie machines. Look at how many people waste their money away on it without any gain in return. That's what Hyper Hippo is doing to their players, latching them on and draining their wallets to a game next to impossible to complete. They're telling you that you're the ironic greedy capitalist. But, in the end, that's their job.

2/10 - I spent $0 on this game and still feel robbed.

Stay away.

This game started out good, but at this point it's just a scam. It is impossible to complete it without cheating, but you're still encouraged to spend real money to speed up your progress. The devs made this change many many months ago, they just keep acknowledging that they know about the problem, and they keep doing nothing. Many/most players, including myself, are now convinced that the devs have no intention of ever making the game finishable and instead are counting on new players spending money to speed up their progress before realizing they've been scammed. If you look at the other reviews, you'll see that it's working.

What's more, there are time-limited events in the game. These started out easy to complete, but have gradually progressed to requiring real money to get anywhere. On its own, this wouldn't be terrible, but the devs keep insisting that it's just a balance issue and that they test the events to make sure they can be completed. They're lying to our faces and that's completely unacceptable.

Don't give these lying scumbags any of your money. Ever.

And don't give this game any of your time either, it's not worth it. What enjoyment you get out of the early stages is quickly superceded by by an annoying addiction.

Advertised as free2play but even if you don't buy any IN-Game 'goodies' youre gonna pay with plenty of your time. If you decide to pay money for progress, this game could be easily become more expensive than topsellers like GTA or Fallout. AC is a very addictive game like a digital drug. It has achievements but no matter how much money you are willing to pay - it can't completed since it is broken since May 2015. Of course, developers falsely advertise the contrary in order, of course, to grab more real-live money from impatient users.

Strongly NOT recommended

The game itself is fine, but the developer's dishonesty or disconnect with reality have removed all the satisfaction from the game.

I would avoid anything made by this developer in the future. They took a very simple concept and monetized it, unfortunately this business model has required them to make some of the content years to complete even with microtransactions. The developer continues to promise that the fix is "coming soon".

It's simple, it's addictive, but past that there's nothing. Once you're hooked in progress grinds to a halt, and unless you're willing to pay (or cheat), you won't reach anywhere near the end.

Throw your computer out the window. You will have more fun than this 'game.'

If you play it you will want to take a shower after, to try and rinse the hate and shame.
