Imagine you’ve lost your job and have $1,000 and have to live for a month. This game is sort of an “Oregon Trail” type simulation where you have to make life and financial decisions and not go broke. It’s sort of a downer (you can tell the people that made it are proponents of workplace benefits and social programs) but reasonably realistic. If it asks you for Facebook info when you choose to “ask a friend for help”, you can skip logging in as far as I can tell.
A lot of times they don’t fully explain the situation before making you decide. For instance, if you must choose to pay gas or electric bill and you don’t pay the gas then the game says you can’t cook and have no heat. Well how did I know I had gas stove and furnace?
I made it out with $990. My kid got to buy school lunch and play afterschool sports, but I skipped most other luxuries and did a few morally questionable things when the $$$ were big enough. I played through again and it was a bit different, I only had $530 or so.
