Enter the exciting and lucrative world of... dot trading?

In this game you take the role of the owner of a store that specializes in selling dots. Buy dots from the wholesale market, put them onto your shelves and open up for business. Watch your merchandise disappear off the shelves, replaced by gross revenue. Dots come in many colours, each with their own individual markets (i.e. prices and customers) that change from day to day, following trends, depending on the forces that shape them.


Made for LOWREZJAM 2014.

To: You, the Owner of this dot store

From: Dorothy A. Ellipsis, Dot Retail Strategist

Subject: Welcome to Cloud Saving!


Hello You,

Our agreement to save our money and backup our business records in the Game Jolt cloud has begun!


Now if your dog ever eats our local records or you accidentally used them on your most recent papier-mâché project, you can just put in a request to download another copy from the cloud seamlessly and continue to run our business as if nothing had happened! Being stored in an abstract form, our puncta* are also much safer than hiding them away in the back of the fridge. The Tech Guy set it up so that your credentials are entered automatically when you come in for work, unless goes wrong then you need to enter your username and token manually. There were some other miscellaneous things that were also taken care of, you can read it here.

As an aside, I would also like to note that the big "Erase Data" you have set up in the Options room now will automatically destroy the records on the cloud in addition to the local ones.


It's convenient should there, I don't know, ever come a time when our business experiences complete failure and you want to, you know, torch the place for the insurance money. ...Not that I endorse such extreme measures...


Actually, I did the calculations, out of pure curiosity and totally not because I think you should do this, and did you know that if you did burn the place down for the insurance, after the costs of registering a new business, buying a new location and bribing everyone, you would be left with 3000 puncta to buy new dots with. I find that quite peculiar, wasn't that the amount you started with? Not that I'm implying anything...

OK... I think I should stop writing now.

Best Regards,

Dorothy A. Ellipsis, Dot Retail Strategist (And Totally Not Crazy)
* FYI: "Puncta" is the local currency. Just in case you forgot.

I like your game, just a question, not a critism, how large is the screen resolution.

The game's resolution is 32x32, the limitation imposed by the LOWREZJAM rules. However, I upscaled it to 512x512 for practical purposes.

Don't worry, Cat Project is still being worked on. I just needed to take a little break.
