It would be great if you can pause the game so you can analyse and teach.

Great job

Claudio, I have an education variant of the game with the ability to pause. If you send me an email then I can grant you access to this special version.

This game is great, it gave me a practical feel of Project planning.I took more tasks and placed them on the Ann because is an average resource among the rest.This was a mistake in a way as now Ann was not able to get to the second task. I did stay within budget.

I uploaded a small update to thatPMGame today. Player name registration is improved, leaderboards are improved, added a pause button to the game, reduced reliance on cookies, minor formatting, text, and graphic tweaks. I also added a slight pause between the time the game loads and when you can hit the start button. This is mainly to help players with slower connections who found the game would break sometimes if they started playing before the page was fully loaded.

I am still working on a larger update to add a little more complexity to the game... this update was just to fix little things that were crying out for attention.

The game is really good! Can you explain the logic behind it's alghoritm?

I am glad you like it! The game is patterned after real life projects although greatly simplified. Time marches on. Tasks cost money to complete in this case proportional to their length. Staff work to complete tasks at a certain temporal rate and fiscal rate. There really isn't much more logic involved, and I would argue that these concepts are the foundation to understanding good project management. After these simple relationships are understood and understood deeply then a PM student can move on to the more complex concepts of project management. My sense is that many curricula skip this step. I hope to call attention back to it.

I'm a teacher and I'd like to receive your version of the game with pause.
With It I will can explain solutions for my students.

Jorge, the game has been updated recently so that every version allows you to pause. All of the features that were in the original education variant are now incorporated into the basic game that you already have access to. Let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you. Robc.
