… and very soon.
Upcoming game CRAP! I’M BROKE: OUT OF POCKET is set to drop on Google Play next week.
This one looks to be a tongue-in-cheek take on living life in these interesting economic times; in fact, the game wants to be “only game to actually deal with underemployment and the need for financial literacy.”
Per the presser, the game look is distinctly cubist, and the core concept is for the player to find work. There are a few occupations to choose from in the quest to make more than one has to pay out. The jobs are time-limited mini-games like doing dishes or separating cans.
The game incorporates a karma system that rewards positive deeds, which is good, because eviction and/or starvation is a real threat if one’s bills aren’t paid on time, and good karma increases the chances of random good things occurring. Debts that aren’t squared away within a period of time have dire consequences.
Money can be used to acquire perks and the like.
It sounds like an interesting diversion, and we are looking forward to checking it out. In the mean time, we can tell you the game is scheduled for an October 11th release, and will cost $1.99 (with no other IAP); enjoy the trailer below.
