Fakeonomy is a stock trading game where you can buy and sell stocks with fake money. It is a work in progress, and I hope to add more features in the future.
Your overarching goal in Fakeonomy is to conquer all six levels, progressing from the "Warm-Up Round" to the daunting "Market Crash." Each level presents a unique set of challenges, and unlocking the next level requires a minimum 1-star achievement. Your journey unfolds step by step, with each level testing different aspects of your trading acumen.
Time is of the essence in Fakeonomy, where each level unfolds within a compact 1 to 5-minute timeframe.
Circa 2010, I participated in an in-person stock market simulation game at the University of Ottawa, and I've been harbouring the idea for Fakeonomy ever since. Fakeonomy draws its inspiration from the world of in-person stock market simulations, bringing the excitement and strategy of these experiences into the digital realm. The game takes the concept further by introducing fictional companies, injecting a playful and imaginative element into the simulation.
The prices are a random walk based on each company's risk and expected return, and are influenced by the news events.
Aha, you've found the secret section! Here's a hidden cheat code button to unlock all levels. Shuu!
