    88 '''1) Econopia should be fast-paced and fit into a class's schedule.''' All the games presented in the analysis require a long time to master, a goal often aimed at by companies to improve their profits. In particular, it takes a long time for players to ''passively'' learn skills and concepts. Our game will be competitive in the educational market because it is aimed at teaching economical concepts to students. Thus, our approach should be direct, and consequences of a student's action should emerge in the game at a rapid rate. In addition, the game should be short enough so that it can fit into a teaching schedule, as most teacher's cannot tell students to dedicate a long period of time towards gaming.

    9090'''2) The game should give a high level of control to the student.''' A common feature of all these games is that the player is empowered with the ability to make different things happen. Thus, the student should have a choice of many possible actions and any action that a student takes should lead to an obvious reaction. This feedback mechanism is also important in learning an educational concept.
