Hero duty for super profit! Monetization Man is ready to go save people from disaster, but since being a good guy doesn’t pay the bills, he’ll be needing some sponsors… or as many as he can get.

Sacrifice your integrity to earn big bucks at Super Sellout! Control Monetization Man, the invincible, indestructible and insufferably greedy superhero that will take any and all offers to make it through the month. Accept sponsors, sacrifice your mobility, and try to make as much money as you can! Money, money, money!

Ah, and maybe rescue some people. At this point, that’s mostly just a courtesy. But hey. Profit!

Created for Ludum Dare 43

  • An invincible hero, people that need rescuing, and money that needs pilfering!
  • Select as many sponsors as you think you can handle. Sacrifice mobility for profit!
  • Some sponsors make the game harder in different ways. Juggle between common sense and rampant disregard for self-preservation!
  • Saving people give you extra money and time. Don’t forget that you’re a hero for a reason!

  • Play with either a keyboard or a controller (any controller works, but only the bindings of an Xbox Controller show).
  • Move with the WASD or arrow keys (Left Stick on a Xbox Controller).
  • Press F Key (X Button on a Xbox Controller) to pay respects save the people when you’re close to them.
  • Press Spacebar (A Button on a Xbox Controller) to jump.

Something went weird with the Mac download; the built-in utility can’t unzip it (“Error 1 - Operation not permitted”), nor can Keka or The Unarchiver. But oddly, unzip in Terminal does it just fine, as does B1 Free Archiver.

Please fix it! I have no idea what’s wrong, maybe a permissions issue?

Hey! Thanks for reporting these zipping problems! We're currently already aware of the issue (which seems to be a very-specific issue between the combined Mac setup, the zipping system we use for our builds, and Itch.io's build system) and are actively looking into it. At the moment, since we're busy with other tasks, I can't give you exactly a timeline when the issue will get fully fixed, but we'll be looking into it soon!

I don't know if you were able to get the builds running since you unzipped from the terminal, but if you want, I can provide you the Mac builds of both games privately if you need. 🙇


Cute artwork, smooth gameplay, entertaining concept! Kind of feels like half a game -- I was expecting to be able to buy upgrades with that money I was earning -- but it was a reasonably fun ten minutes.


Thank you for playing! And yes, the scope of this game was a bit shorter, but we're happy that it still allowed for some reasonably good time! 

If we had the chance to implement some of those, what kind of upgrades do you recon would be available to be bought or which other situations do you think could be added for you to spend money on? We would love to know! 🐳


Tried to play your game (Linux), but literally everything (graphics, menus, mouse movement) is reflected vertically, which makes things kind of difficult.


Oh! Oof! Thanks for reporting that! We will see about issuing a patch for that as-soon as possible! 🙇

We'll let you know as soon as it's up, thank you for the heads up. 🙏


You're welcome, and thanks! (And thanks for sharing your game in the bundle)

If you need any additional information, please let me know and I'll see what I can gather.


mine was $6561


That's a very nice score! Well done! 👏
What sponsors did you had active when you got that score? All of them?




Hey, that's pretty good! My has score was $6529.
