Once this has been answered, feel free to post your own “I can’t remember what that was called” games:
The game I am trying to find was an economic sim-type game. I believe the initial story-line was that you had just graduated with your MBA degree and had been put in charge of a company. You could run products from factories, and were tasked with finding the right stores to sell your product, finding cheaper factory inputs, etc. Basically you ran the entire production line from base goods like sugar, all the way to selling the candy bars in stores.
It had a top-down view similiar to sim-city, and I’d say it was made maybe in the early 2000’s. It was a bit too complicated for me when it was released, but I’d like to give it another go now. Anyone?
