Originally made for the Ludum Dare 47 game jam, Everything is Garbage has you create amusing supply chains to turn garbage into lots of money.
Created by some of the folks from Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting and more), you start off with nothing but a small island and a pile a trash. What they've managed to create is a deceptively simple looking production chain sim. Nowhere near the complication levels of Factorio mind you but clever enough in the execution of it to easily enjoy the experience of turning trash into piles of monies.
You need to use this trash to spread across the map, powering farms and cows until you have enough to cash to buy up more islands and continuing spreading. Being careful while you do, to ensure you have enough money to buy the right buildings, or you can dump money back into to the trash to continue feeding the machine.
It's quite delightful actually, especially as all the chains have a little bop to them as they hop between buildings in the chain. Another example of indie developers doing really cool things. Wouldn't mind seeing (and paying for) a much expanded version of it. Wonderful.
They recently updated it with a post-jam version, along with a Linux build too. You can try it out right now free on itch.io.
