Shakedown: Hawaii

Entrant 2019

Vblank Entertainment


Shakedown: Hawaii parodies big business and the white collar crimes that go alongside. Build a "legitimate" corporation by completing open world missions, acquiring businesses, sabotaging competitors, "re-zoning" land, and shaking down shops for protection money.

The game follows an aging CEO, struggling to make sense of the modern world. Online shopping killed his retail stores, ride sharing his taxi business, and streaming his video stores. His company's stuck in the past, and so is he. To save the company, he'll need to learn the methods of modern business, and use them to rebuild his empire. From subscriptionware and lootboxes, to marketing spin and "convenience" fees, he'll discover that with the "right" business models, the entire island could be his!

From the boardroom to the streets, build your corporate empire and destroy the competition.
