Really deep.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

As someone who has been trying to make it as an artist who focuses on metalworking (jewelry and blacksmithing) this hit a little close to home. I think I have been drinking too much and worrying too much on money.. thanks..

Rated 5 / 5 stars

It was really good, this game... But I would have preferred if it played with you some more, the money you make is little, but if it was manageable but... To rephrase, I think it would be great as a means of "Staving of the inevitable" Delaying it.
But maybe that is because my Space bar is busted
But I totally agree with everyone else, this game should never lead to success, just a facade of it before... the demise.

God... This game made a few tears drop through my face. It touched my heart, because I'm a musician and go through this struggle too. Each second I played it I found it to look more and more like my life, starting with a dream and everything seems eazy and wonderful, but after a while it gets hard, no recognition, no money, and then I stop investing in the talent and start to work to pay for my art, but it never piles up, and I end up just working and it gets depressing, it takes me and I can't do anything right, after a while I turn into a lowlife. Even though I survived this struggle(with help of medicine) it is still hard to keep up with the art. This masterpiece touched my weak spot, so much that I winded up taking half an hour to write this, because my hands were shaking too much.
