Apparently ~$9.957.

Though it's crazy to look at $127 and not think that's a lot... ._.

Man, sounds like when I was in Italy back in 2001.  1000 Lira?  I'm rich!  I'm rich!  I'm...  wait, what?  It's worth...  50 cents?  Drats.

Yeah, the math on the yen is easier.  Just think of 'em as pennies, and it keeps everything in check.

I wrote that article - I'm glad it encouraged someone else to try the game.

I suppose if you're really, really stuck you can use a guide. But for me a lot of the "fun" was encountering situations and trying to get around them.

The Bachelor's scenario is def the easiest. But Haruspicus has some rather interesting situations - notably being jailed at one point.

I found it incredibly satisfying, but then I love games which force me to ration limited resources (like the original Resident Evil).


A good tip:
Not all the side missions are worth doing. Make sure you complete the day's quest, but if an optional extra quest is proving too tough or time consuming, don't feel guilty in skipping it. Sometimes they provide great rewards, other times they provide nothing.

Also, the most valuable resource is food. You need it every day, whereas ammunition and medicine you do not always need. If in doubt, stock up on food - you can't go wrong, even if food prices later plummet.

Yeah, your article wasn't only what encouraged me to buy the game, but also it was also my introduction to it. You did very well on that article! :thumbsup:
