I guess I'm spoiled by other games that simulate an economy, in that a surplus you tend to have during one turn tends to carry over and continue to increase in the next. Not in this one: implementing meat in vats apparently only provides a short-term 10 year boost to food supplies.

I also don't understand their emissions model. At one point I had -54 megatonnes of emissions projected for the turn. Next turn, I was projected as having an increase in emissions of 220 megatonnes. You'd think with the entire economy powered by advanced fusion, households powered by local wind turbine sand solar cells, and hydrogen fuel cell cars that emissions wouldn't suddenly jump the next year. But, they do.

Despite that, though, it's fairly interesting. My best is a duplicate of Funko's screenshot above.
