Cntrl started out as a 2 week clicker project about capitalism. It had a very different aesthetic and style. Here was the description of our completely different game in March. 

"In an unjust world, you are the 1%. You create opportunities for the working class, recruit them to your city and make money off their hard labor.

You build comfortable lodging, public transport, better healthcare and recruit life coaches; to further your own gains.

You then crush them with your foot. You profit. You are the 1%. Money makes the world go around after all."

At first, instead of sucking the citizens up, players were able to stomp them instead. We quickly realized that extreme violence was not the way to go.
