Hard Times is a game of extreme urban survival during which you will have to put yourself in the role of a homeless person, struggling with all the challenges that daily survival poses in the great metropolis of indifference.

You will have to rummage in the garbage, begging, escaping to corrupt policemen and citizens spy maniacs of decorum. You will suffer hunger and cold. You will hate long rainy nights and party when you get a decent meal.
