I just finished it, got all the items. I quite enjoyed this, I liked the concept of your money being your time, and depending on what experiences you focus on will offer up new options in life. I would love to see another free game use the gacha mechanic for something, because I like collecting things and this game itched that desire, and I'd like to see it more in a way that isn't intrusive gambling.
I'm glad you got the concept! The theme for the game jam was "Your life is currency", so that was our take on it. We're totally open to expanding and exploring the gacha mechanics. It might need to be a premium game to ensure it doesn't have intrusive gambling elements though. Would you be open to buying a game that explores un-intrusive gacha mechanics?
I would be in that kind of situation. The only time I really have issue with something like this is when its a gacha game where I need to pay real money for digital items. I generally don't buy things on itch.io and I'd love to see it on steam, where I can purchase it much easier. Either way I hope to see more from you guys in the future!
