Yo guys, for my senior thesis i created this online game where you run your own investment bank and trading firm against other players (with about 5000+ real life events like getting caught for white collar crimes) and although i didnt fill it with real players, i made a bunch of artificially intelligent "players" to simulate human behavior.

my thesis is supposed be as realistic as possible and simulate economic conditions and i let the game run for a simulated 10 years and gathered about 10,000 lines of data, many of it matching real world data almost exactly (like a big investment bank suddenly tipping overboard which I dubbed "b-sterns" on my datachart :P

anyways i spent a shitload of time making this and don't want it to go to waste. if i ever released it online to the public, would any of you actually play it? If not, I'll just lock it up and be on my merry fuckin way. Cause then I gotta buy a domain and buy webhosting and set up a bunch of stuff lol whereas for the purpose of my thesis I set it up on the school's server for free.

so let me know!

clarification: the thesis has already been finished and presented. now its just sitting there and i dont know if i should just leave it there or not.

    Yea I'm intrigued. Make the interface easy to use and appealing though or I'll give up out of impatience.

    People tend to think life is a race with other people. They don't realize that every moment they spend sprinting towards the finish line is a moment they lose permanently, and a moment closer to their death.
