Brown designed Careers to be an answer to the what he perceived as the 1950s focus on greed and monetary-based self worth.

Victory conditions (a secret "Success Formula") consist of a minimum amount of fame, happiness and money (designated as fortune and counted in thousands of dollars) that the player must gain.
