    Rouge-like is one of my favourite genres. I would have liked Planetscape Tournament and Boulders Gate even better if they had been rouge-likes.

    I bought this game a day or two ago cause it was about to be finally released in a week. Gameplay loop was fun, but you get used to it really fast. I completed the whole game in 2 hours, failing only once on first try. Basically, you're given the same quest every time you start the game: Earn $200, find a job and rent a house. The moment you do that, you feel like "this is when the real game starts", but nope, that's the end-game. Game ends with a fade out. That's it.

    It's VERY easy to find the right shelters, stay above 85 Happiness and be constantly fed. Hell, I got a stray dog I was able to keep feeding every day, cause it was so cheap and easy. This doesn't feel like "homeless" survival. This world feels easier to survive than real life.

    What a disappointment. I refunded it, luckily according to Steam it was exact 2 hrs when I ended the play-through.

    This reminds me of a Flash game where you were homeless and had to travel to some kind of big city. I recall having this minigame where you have to hit a twitchy vein with a syringe to regain health, setting up bear traps to stay safe from bears while camping on the road and some other stuff like that. I played it a good 10 years ago, but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called anymore.

    Bear traps? That sounds hilarious.

    This game takes a more serious tone, but honestly, it doesn't really do it that well. There is text pop-up at the shelters, telling some stories of events that happened that night you stayed in there, or something when you sleep outside (like waking up to find people gave you some coins while you slept), but overall, you play a generic homeless guy that you can't even customize. This would actually work better if you could create a custom homeless guy and select his backstory (Arcanum type) with de-buffs applied, dealing with issues of health (mental and physical) or some addiction that got you fired?

    To be fair, they intend to add more stories in full version, but I don't really see how that'll improve the game since the story is delivered in text in the beginning and the end (for your character) while any text pop-up during game is unrelated.

    Oh well, I had this game for a while on wishlist. Just disappointed how it turned out.

    LOL @ price.

    I can buy 20 good indie games for that price. Wait for 90% discount in a year or two.

    On Voidu you can get it for 22.50€, not too bad considering there are three games in the collection I think.

    I just noticed something,Borderlands The Handsome Collection was on sale with a 93% discount but now suddenly it changed to 86% discount...


    Is Randy Pitchford too butthurt that people are review bombing his games on Steam and decided to lower the discount to stick it to those evil steam users?

    Probably accidentally typed 93% while browsing his child porn.

    On the side note, I initially disabled the Steam's new option where they hid negative review spam from total scores, but it was a bad idea.

    Turning it on cause this childish negative review spam ruins so many games I want to see genuine ratings of.
