Minigame Guide


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

All characters are able to create a corporation using the IdleCapitalist bot on the GPS Discord server. See the dedicated IdleCapitalist channel already on the GPS server. The minigame itself is considered OOC (meaning the cash is not transferable to your IC cash on hand), but corporations are permitted apply to go public on the IC stock exchange, allowing tycoon characters to buy and trade their stock. The stock price of these corporations are included in the regular stock market updates and fluctuate based on overall IC economic condition, player activity, and other factors. 

Please refer to the subsequent posts in this thread for how to play guides provided by https://idlecapitalist.com/
