Description: Hobo Living VR is a game that puts the player into the shoes of a homeless person living on a city street block. You will need to make money any way you can to purchase the essentials for street living. The daytime is good for begging for change, busking or doing odd jobs. Upon initial EA release you will be able to beg for change, but busking and odd jobs will be added soon after. At night, the hobos must sleep, but depending on how the day has gone you may not be able to sleep without the aid of drugs or alcohol. Money can be used to purchase these items from the corner store. Stealing is also an option, but be careful, or you could end up in jail for the night.

Bodily functions must be managed as well. Wait too long and you may make a smelly mess, which might get you in trouble. Keeping healthy is important, but because sleep is a must you may need to do some unhealthy things to make that happen. Alcohol and sleeping pills may help, but they can degrade your health. Eventually, you will be able to gather enough money to rent the apartment located above the local store and get off the street for good.

Review: Where on earth do I ever start with ‘Hobo Living VR’? I suppose I could tell you that it looks nice, which it does, but that is just about all the praise I am going to be able to muster up here. This game is an embarrassment to all homeless people out there. Not every “hobo” is a drunk, not all of them steal to get food, there are no real survival elements in this game, in fact, you can see all the game has to offer in less than 15 minutes and I messed about for a lot of that! I really can’t see this game every being worth owning and I can only presume it was released as a joke.well, the joke is on them because it sucks, I think it is probably broken and even if it isn’t the moral issues in the game make it joke anyway. I really would rather be made homeless again than play this game again.
