It's funny that years ago no one would have thought that games with "sim-like" elements would sell. No one cared. Now...all of a sudden there's a demographic supporting it. And it's almost everywhere. Especially now with the mobile generation.

I've seen the game. Looks great. Too bad we can't own it for our collection. Music is great. I still haven't seen anyone explain the game mechanics. I have no clue how the system works. Just people playing but no explanation of how it works. Maybe that will come later. Since the game just dropped. Glad to know that this game has a sound story line.

Assuming you don't mind playing this game on PC, it is available on GOG. As for me, I hope it does well even though it is not my kind of game.

I'm not really a PC gamer. Sadly we can't do much with it as we don't have a PC library of games. We just started getting in Switch and I want to get in more cartridge based games because we're realized that online doesn't work on a school wide system when people want to use their own accounts. So best to keep physical on hand. Since we've never did PC in the past we can't do it now.

That is a bummer as that store sell games drm-free. Maybe in a few months, Limited Run games will make limited for this game.

I hope so but I wonder what their turnaround time is. But we purchased a lot of their games but they're still waiting to be cataloged. Because some librarians just don't like doing records from scratch and not many libraries have the games we have to pull a record from. Takes a little more time, easier if you have a physical game you can work from. But sometimes, there are just more important things to work on. LOL!! And if I raise a fuss I'll get in trouble. Digital games especially don't have much to work from so they end up very incomplete. So they end up being quick brief records just to make them available. But looks that experiment is dead on arrival. When you got 1000's of students playing their own accounts... Occulus for us might survive for us. But I want to build up the Switch a little more. I tried passing the idea of storing things on SD, but won't matter if it acts like the Wii and it's exclusive to it's system. The only way to win have a physical copy.
