Rob houses, buy items, figure out how to break the cycle.

An updated version of a game I originally made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 33 based on the theme "You Are The Monster."

Reviews


It is a really good game, but very difficult at the beginning. Once you get how to make it work, you can finish it fast.
To me, it's TOO RANDOM. Yo can plan everything and still can get bad results. But after all, i finished it at 82 years XD



i think it can be way better if you try adding a story to it



Not a bad game, and I do like the option to turn your life around, but a few things that I might mention: 1. You start as someone 18 years old with a drug/gambling problem, but a bit of customization might be nice, especially for people who want to play without a ton of cash drained randomly 2. The not-so-random events, maybe adjust it so that one isn't every single day? Before rehab I was usually doing drugs nightly and after I gave a friend 5 for groceries every day, both of which could be made less frequent 3. The settings, mainly the discipline, don't have a huge effect on the game. Dropping discipline to nothing was effective, but pulling it to it's max did little 4. The jobs, chance of success doesn't matter it seems, considering I had 1% and was hired. I'm sure it makes it easier to get one when starting, but maybe the longer you've gone without getting fired/getting in legal trouble the easier your chances of getting hired, and the longer at a job you might be promoted 5. Maybe putting higher loot stores/houses a bit closer, making it more like the real rich/poor areas and easier to see where to start and work up to. Over all not bad, the style does get repetitive, no volunteer option to show employers (higher success) or way to not sleep in a hotel room because you're paranoid but no heat on you, but just some issues with an over all decent game



This is really nice game! I really like the free choice - whether to be good or bad. I like the gameplay, the settings of difficulty and like... everything
