That ending infuriated me. Other than that, I really, really, enjoyed it.

What I find a bit confusing is that I keep losing money and I don't know why. I have no idea whether or not it is my station, my trade route being bad, someone stealing from me (?) or something else.

I'm honestly surprised this wasn't already a thing.

I'm probably gonna pick up a few copies and gift them to some friends, since the developers were so cool about the whole thing.
