game release date for PC:
Bum Simulator for PC Windows is a humoristic simulator that allows players a glimpse into the life of a homeless person. The game was developed by Ragged Games and published by PlayWay.
In the game, players assume the role of an American citizen who one day loses everything and lands on the streets.
The game offers much freedom in shaping the fate of the main protagonist. Players can e.g. accept their fate and learn how to live as a bum or try to find a job and take revenge on those who caused this situation. One can even become a local legend.
Even though the title includes the word “simulator,” Bum Simulator for PC Windows has nothing to do with realism. The developers have created a funny arcade sandbox that presents a tongue-in-cheek approach towards the life of a bum.
In the game, players observe the action from the first-person perspective. The in-game world has an open structure giving players the freedom to explore. The locations are densely populated with interesting characters and activities players can complete. During the game, one has to primarily focus on surviving – to do this, you can use a number of bum's special abilities, featuring begging, collecting cans, building cardboard shelters, training pigeons, and learning the mysteries behind the alcohol alchemy.
All this is presented in a humoristic way. Because of this, during the campaign players can e.g. solve the mystery of rat-people living in the sewers.
The game features full 3D visuals and is based on an elaborate graphics engine.
