SAFETY WARNING:

This game is designed to simulate life in poverty or near-poverty, and how much we sacrifice just to get by. Even if you win, you will lose a lot. If you or someone you love has experienced this cycle, the game may be extremely emotional for you to play. Take steps to ensure you have self-care available before and after you play
