It’s weird how we play games simulating the worst things about real life. Whether it’s going to war or working in a restaurant kitchen, we’re always totally up for pretending to do things in games that we would hide under a bed to avoid doing in the real world.
Crap! I’m Broke might be the strangest life sim of all, in that it re-creates the unenviable experience of being on the breadline, with no money, mounting bills, and the prospect of eviction and starvation hanging over your head at all times.
And it’s great! Thanks to its tough but well-balanced gameplay and its arresting cubist art-style, Crap! I’m Broke is the most enjoyable simulation of having no money or prospects we’ve ever played.
And if you actually are broke you can now download it for just 99p, down from its usual price of £1.99. Get it here.
