In 6 months your daughter is off to college. There's only one problem, you have no money to pay for her education! Oh no!

Now you must spend the next 6 months making phone calls in a dull, awful office job, where you scam strangers out of their money by selling them useless junk. Find out what kind of people you're talking to, and play to their interests to succeed!

This game was made for the Seattle Indies Game Jam over the course of 48 hours!

I really like this game, but is it actually possible to win the game, or is your failure a metaphor, proving you're a terrible parent?

It's definitely possible, if not really hard. You're trying to save up 4 years worth of tuition in six months.
