The game is hard, but this guide might help!
Guide to Survive
After beating the game, I want to share some of the things that I learned. This game is unpredictable though, so I don’t think there’s any clear way of winning. You have to look at the current stats, and figure out what to do.
Remember: This is a guide, not a walkthrough.
The guy’s macbook is probably the most important part of the game. Each app affects different values (except for ones that don’t do anything), so it’s important to know which one does what.
I don’t fully know all of them, but here’s what I got:
- Coding increases the satisfaction and coding values.
- Zoom increases the satisfaction and school values, but can only be used from 6AM to 12PM.
- Steam increases the happiness value.
- Art increases the satisfaction and art values.
- Notes doesn’t increase anything but it tells you what time school and practice.
- Email doesn’t increase anything.
Another important part of the day is going out the door. You can only go out after 12:30PM.
Outside you’ll find other human beings. There are lots of them, and you can talk to all of them. The only problem is you can talk to a maximum of 5 people each day.
Because of one of the postcards, I suggest talking to the same 5 people each day. 4 of them loiter in the same spot, so it’s easiest to talk to the ones that stand still.
Besides this, the guy also wants to do practice. Depending on when you start, he does 9 to 2 miles. I have absolutely no idea what practice is for, but you should probably do it. Knowing this game, if you don’t do practice it’s probably an instant loss, just like if you don’t do school.
This is the most dangerous part of the game. Each time you go to sleep, pray that your statistics are high enough, because this is where it’s decided if you die or not.
Other than that, you see the statistics you’re at.
First, it says the amount of sleep you got. This number is sort of amplified, but it still makes sense. If you got negative sleep, that means you really did not get much. If it says something like 47, that simply means you got a lot of sleep.
At first, it might seem that no matter how much sleep you get, everything decreases. But sleep doesn’t actually affect the statistics that much. I think that if you get a lot of sleep, you’ll get more satisfaction, so just go to bed at like 11:00PM.
