About This Game

Being poor is a choice, you are just too stupid to not pick it

As everyone knows the simplest way to make money is to trade stocks. If you don't know how, try asking your Fathers assistant or the guys at the racket ball club.

A failure to make enough to live lavishly is a fundamental personal failure on the part of the person.

Just stop working at McBurger-fil-a and get a better job.

In this life simulator you can -

  • Trade stocks like a pro!
  • Place Market orders after-hours during a downturn!
  • Operate on Margin!
  • Purchase ETFs!
  • Take advantage of the working class*!
  • Get hooked to coke as your reach exceeds your grasp!
  • Uncover the cabal of lizard people manipulating the world**!!!

*Don't worry, they are probably black, foreign, or women
** JK its just old white guys

This product contains jokes or language that some may find offensive. It also parodies power and wealth inequalities in ways that may make the 1% uncomfortable.
