Can you survive Silicon Valley in this Startup Simulation Game?

Can you survive Silicon Valley in this Startup Simulation Game?

We all know that the people in Silicon Valley can be a little, well, kooky. The people at Toggl certainly know this, which is probably why they created this gem of a game.

The “Unicorn Startup Simulator” puts you in the shoes of a criminally insane startup CEO and gives you a seemingly straightforward objective – reach a valuation of 1 Billion dollars within 1 year.

It’s easier said than done, because, in addition to racing against time, you’ll also have to keep your employees happy as you navigate your fragile startup through sex scandals, Twitter feuds and bloodthirsty investors.

You will probably come to hate one character in particular, as “Chad from marketing” seems to generate more problems than leads.

The game is pretty similar to “Reigns”, as any new problem will only give you two options for handling it.

It sounds simple, but it doesn’t take much for your employees to revolt, kill your startup and send you back to your mom’s basement.

“Chaaad!”
