Okay, so I noticed this about the top scores in Papa's Freezeria, it's extremely high. Here's a few images and I will explain more about this below.

1.) We see the number 1 high score is 2,147,483,647. Next we see that it was posted on July 16, 2011.

2.) We see the user's profile who says that people call him a hacker (but the comment hints at the fact that the score is authentic).

3.) We see that the game was released in the summer of 2011. Considering the post date of the first place persons score, this does not leave them with much time to reach this score.

4.) This is the amount of points I get after a typical day. The number is 1,176 points. I usually get around a 98% service rating, so I am gaining a higher amount of points per day.

Let me also mention that it takes roughly 7 to 10 minutes to complete an in-game day in Papa's Freezeria. You gain points after every day and those are the points that add up to go to your high score. The more days you complete the more you will have for your high score. So the 1,176 points I earn at the end of the day (shown in number 4) are points toward my high score.

Here is so math.
- Let's be generous and say that it takes 5 minutes to complete one in- game day.

- 1200 points are earned every in-game day.

- Taking the high score of 2,147,483,647 we divide.

2,147,483,647 / 1,200 = 1,789,569.706 in-game days

Rounding in game days up to the nearest whole day and dividing by 5 minutes real life time to complete 1 in-game day.

1,789,570 * 5 minutes = 8,947,850 minutes
149,131 hours (rounded up to nearest whole hour)
6,214 days
about 17 years playing this game non-stop, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Considering the game came out in the summer of 2011 and the score was posted in 2011 I don't see how this is not hacking, unless there is some sort of multiplier that is given later in the game.

This bothers me because I am aiming to get a high score, and if the first 1o or so scores are all hacked, it sort of ruins the fun.

So, can anyone clarify if there is a multiplier later in the game allowing for such scores or if all of these scores are just hacked?
