Description

This free, unlicensed game is a parody of McDonald's (a US fast food restaurant chain) and a jab at its corporate ethics. Despite its disclaimer denying any similarities, it did provoke an official reaction. The player manages the whole production process, from buying pastures, through feeding the cows, to hiring people who sell sandwiches at the counter (in the symbolic restaurant), later reviewing growth charts in company's headquarters.

Everything starts innocently as you select new soy fields, oversee the cows in the feed lot (watch for sick/mad ones!), hire the personnel of the restaurant or launch a new advertising campaign. However the board of directors always rushes you, demanding improvement in company growth. Fast game pace (and lack of savegame feature), protests from activist groups - coupled with the constant need of increasing production and income - forces the player to use emergency solutions (or face bankruptcy). Growth hormone, waste, meat & bone meal can be fed to cows to speed-up meat production. The soil eventually becomes polluted due to overuse - new land parcels are acquired by cutting down the rainforest, kicking out the natives and corrupting local officials. Tired workers may be boosted with badges, disciplined or fired. To counter anti-globalists and other protest groups (concerned with workers' rights or health) you may bribe experts or start a propaganda campaign with your PR department.

The game is played indefinitely until the player fails.
