In Nile Ale you're an owner of a temple beer brewery in Ancient Egypt. Brew beer and sell it to people. Hire more slaves... err, workers, produce more beer. Build your Ancient Egypt beer empire!

Don't forget to give a raise to your workers.

Beer quality depends on some proportion ratios. Guess them and you'll be fine.

Don't forget to upgrade your beer level in the Upgrades menu.

Don't hire too many workers.

This game was made from scratch for the Compo. If you're looking for source code, I recommend downloading the file called "Pico-8 cart (p8)". "Pico-8 cart (png)" is for easy running on your Pico-8. Donations from the game will be spent on remaking the game in glorious Full HD.
