Hobo Tough Life is on Steam Greenlight
It’s a survival RPG situated into a city environment. The game is supposed to be tough. You will have to deal with hunger, hostile environment, human unconcern and with forthcoming winter.
It's not just survival. We want to be storytellers as well. We will tell stories inspired by those less fortunate from real life, but also stories somewhat romanticized. We want to balance those approaches, because we are not trying to make some sort of realistic simulation, but after all we want to create a game.
You can support us on Steam Greenlight now:
We have recently made our trailer public. Here it is:

I've already done this in real life, not interested in playing a game about it.
Out of all the ****** "simulators" that hits steam greenlight this game actually looks promising because:
1. The word Simulator isn't used
2. Looks like you put some proper though and effort into its design
If this is done with enough tact, it could really open up people's eyes to what it's like to being homeless. The decisions that are faced to survive in an urban environment...
Remember the Homeless Simulator game from Postal 2
well looks like it's real now
I like the concept, and if done like a proper survival game, where you need to fight/steal/scam your way through a particularly hard day, this could be good.
However I have some initial concerns (based on these screenshots), most hobos don't have near $236 (or whatever currency you're using) to use, what would the hobo be able to do with this money anyway? Is the goal of the game to establish yourself as a regular citizen or maybe even amass a small fortune considering you won't be paying the fat tax man?
