Abstract/Artist Statement

The goal of our project is to create a Stock Market game. The player will be given a starting amount of money and will need to play a simulated stock market to reach a specified goal value over a specified amount of time. The player must buy and sell stock in order for the players value to rise, though they run the risk of losing value as well. Once the user reaches the target value, they win. The game will feature a simulated stock market in which stocks rise and fall in a realistic manner, though the speed that they raise and fall will be hastened for the sake of gameplay. Players will need to make quick decisions and have some luck if they hope to win.
