Genre: Survival / Hobo Simulation / Point & Click
Developer: Delve Interactive
Loose everything, your job, your apartment and live on the street till you can afford a new life. In this game you are put in a randomly generated street and need to beg for money or dive dumpsters to earn perks and survive. You can steal at shops, get caught or be lucky, run into police while begging, get banned to new areas or arrested. We need to mention that the game can bug out and make it difficult to play.
For the night you need to be on time in any shelter to sleep, otherwise you will need to sleep on a bench or worse on the street. You might get robbed or beaten up if you are unlucky or people might leave a few cents while you are sleeping. If you are lucky you can make friends with a dog, but you will need to feed him then too. To get a job you need to study in a libery at first.
You need to keep an eye on your happiness. It will go down if you don't keep your hunger low. A way to get it back up is chocolate or apples or beer, that you can buy at shops. Otherwise you could get also drunk in a bar or get addicted to smoking.
The game has still a huge lack of content. Restaurants and shops should have a backyard and bigger trash containers to find more food. The time runs so fast that you get stressed out a lot. It is by this no relaxing experience at all, but living on the street is usually pretty boring and you won't be hurrying from place to place like crazy. It is also hard to get a job if the only hostel is far away and no bus station or toilet nearby. You can't apply dirty for work and should probably also not go to work dirty. But the job centre or any bus station is most of the time too far away to reach there in time, so that you'll either not even get a job or get fired.
The graphic isn't anything to write home about, it is most of the time dark, wet, blurry and not really attractive. Although the depressive situation gets shown by this it might not be needed to paint all that uninviting. The random music is nice but they should add some music for the guitar playing action, they got some sound for it, but no songs. Also it would be nice to have some more sleeping possibilities, because empty construction sides, metro stations and other places under bridges could be added. Of course with different events during the night and different protection. Also more items at the shops and a lot more locations should be added. I could imagine some NPC's with quests to find a lost wallet or cat, to fetch some milk or get any informations might add more gameplay too. The game is so extremely short that you can play it through within one evening or lets say 3-5 hours even if you fail in the beginning often and restart the game several times. It is a fun game, but 8 Euro, definitely overpriced! Also the developers seem to just make the game meanwhile harder instead of adding content to get people playing it longer, not a really good way to improve a game and expand the playing time to be honest.
We recommend: If you like point and click games, you could buy it on sale when it is far lower in price!
