80's Teen Angst returns in this 8-bit rendition of your favorite nerd gets revenge story.

Buck Star has a bully problem. Hybrid High's most popular jock prep scumbag Chet Armstrong has stolen Buck's girlfriend. And now that school's out, he wants to humiliate him further by attacking his credibility at life and success.

What's Buck to do? Why, fight back, of course.

But will he fight back with sex, drugs, and rock n' roll? Will he counter with chips, dips, chains, or whips? Or will he pull out all the stops and go for the rich kid's bank account, all the while building his own?

In Entrepreneur: The Beginning, you chart Buck's path toward becoming a coffee shop business tycoon on his summerlong quest to make coffee, topple his rival's financial empire, and hopefully win back the girl. It won't be easy, but then, neither are the eighties.

And with that, let the coffee sales begin.

Contest Version Released: June 7, 2009

Bugfix Version (1.1) Released: June 14, 2009

Version 1.2 Released: September 4, 2013


June 6, 2011 - Taking game off the Internet until I can replace the two unlicensed songs that are currently in the opening sequences. Also, the game is really too buggy to play anyway. I'll reupload soon, once I get new songs in place and squash some more game-breaking bugs.

September 4, 2013 - Game is back on Slime Salad with huge update, but I still need someone to volunteer to record two new songs to replace the unlicensed ones. Consult text files or "Entrepreneur Central" in the Game Discussion Forum for details on Version 1.2.

August 21, 2016 - Adding a supplement file for a composite map of the entire game world. Comes with labels of locations. Features some areas coming in the v1.3 release (release date still TBA).

November 11, 2017 - Introducing the experimental version of Entrepreneur: The Beginning. This version will be updated more frequently than once every four years and will feature whatever the newest additions are to the game as they're implemented. This means that some features will also be incomplete, and the game will undoubtedly have bugs, some of which may be game-breaking. Play at your own risk. Experimental version announcements and information should be monitored at "Entrepreneur Central." Changelogs are also included inside the file. The next stable version will become the next official release of the game. The next stable will be version 1.3 and is expected summer 2018.

This is the updated version of the included instructions. I decided to attach it separately so you don't have to re-download the game just to learn how to play it. Note: This was recent as of June 14, 2009. Get the instructions for Version 1.2 instead.
