Welcome to Goldfish Rush! Inspired in part by The Genius (a Korean reality show that features weird strategy games) and Proletariat (a previous game that I created; see here and here), this is a non-reality-based competitive fish-breeding corporate parody game. It is a purely social/strategic game that does not include timed challenges at all. While the rules are indeed intricate, the day-to-day gameplay (see the section: Days 1-5) is relatively simple.
Goldfish Rush takes place in a not-too-distant dystopian future where science has gone too far and the corporate elite rule society. (In other words, it takes place in 2017.) After being compared unfavorably to a dead fish for years since her appearance on Americas Next Top Model, Lluvy Gomez has decided to capitalize on her brand by founding CarpCorp, a company that farms genetically synthesized goldfish bred for their valuable scales. As the CEO of CarpCorp, she is responsible for steering the company in a direction that is beneficial to its shareholders. Sales have been so successful, that Lluvy is planning to divest from the corporation to move on to her next endeavor. However, before she can do that, she must find a worthy successor among her employees who has the strategic savvy and organizational competence to take CarpCorp in a positive direction after her departure. She designed this game, Goldfish Rush, in order to test her employees for the qualities of a successful CEO. However, if she finds no one to be worthy, she will continue to head the company herself; and if things go really badly, CarpCorp might go under entirely. Either way, Lluvy looks to make a tidy profit off of her image. And who knows, she may someday be President.
