I see the theme of this game, but most games like this are always about getting more.
The game was somewhat challenging but fun. The unexpected ending killed all of it though. I feel like the abrupt ending could have been integrated better.
The ending of this game should be due to the action and failure of the player themselves taking on more power than they should have. If the player can maintain stability, then the ending shouldn't come.
To put the effort in building up to such a point only for everything to crumble makes it a waste of time.
