Imagine running an internet company. You start out as a low budget inter comp. looking to make it big, you will have decide which lines to use(you only get 3 at the beginning, and gain more when you get a certain amount of users), when you begin the only connections you have are 56k, and 28.8k(slow, but you are starting out).

As you move along in the game you will have problems, such as customers getting mad over the slow connections, busy signals, prices to high, viruses on your computer destroying your computers(and software, but you are in luck, because you can recover for hiring someone to repair it, but you will get lawsuits from users, because you wrecked their computers, because you didn`t have the best virus protector, which you will also have to buy).

Things you will have to buy are computers(1 computer won`t be good at all, because it will slow the users down a lot),lines, workers (such as software devolopers(who will make the software for the internet), phone operators, managers, ect.), modems, isdn, cable, dsl, t1, and t3.

If you have ideas, I will list them.

       This would be a cool game! I dont see it going through a main game publisher and making it. But a really nice, well done shareware/free ware game of this idea would be spectacular!
