But they're such nice products, they're worth the suffering of others.

It's wonderful on this side of the fence, ain't it?

I can't be the only one who found this game to be fun.
At least in the beginning, but then I had to keep firing employees because they were all slackers, I had to inject cows with hormones to keep up with demand, but then they all got mad cow disease, and it cost a lot of money to bribe officals in 3rd world countries to let me bulldoze ancient relics to make more land to raise cattle.

I think I missed the point of the game, as I was having too much fun.

Any chance of Sweatshop comming to Droid?

It was an advert.  It worked very well and indeed is still cited as a brilliant bit or marketing.

When the song said "Everybody wants to rule the world" did you think there were exceptions?  How foolish.

Wow... I can't believe I wasn't the only one to have the *exact* same thoughts... both about the McDonald's game *and* an Android version. You might enjoy a dungeon sim called "Evil Genius". I believe you can buy it for $10 on Steam.

I still have have EG in a box somewhere. Awesome game. Oh, and I found you can just go to Playsweatshop.com to play it for free using Flash.
I'm on stage 15 or so. Having a blast making those little bastards work and laughing when one of them loses an arm on the convyer belt. I'm not playing 40 bucks for an engineer. I can just hire another kid for 5. 10 bucks to give me employees water? I think not. I'll just fire you right before you die and take up valuable floor space. You might think I'm mean, but who's racking up 100% on the cash bonuses? I am.
