Ugh. One kid is a sophomore, one kid is going into freshman year at college next year. Too real. Thankfully: savings.

I burst out laughing at the part where you have to cow-clicker your way to all 4 classes you need.

This is great.

I tried to answer honestly based on my own experiences in colllege.

I failed because I didn't have enough fun and was so unhappy that I was at risk of dropping out.
All too real!

I failed, but I suspect that's mostly because I have no comprehension whatsoever of the US education system! When I graduated (in the UK) from a 5-year degree I owed about £18,000 (about $23,500 USD): more than almost anybody I graduated alongside but luckily with a low interest rate and terms that only require repayment while I'm earning over a certain threshold. I'm currently taking a second degree, part-time, but I'm paying for it out of savings. I have no idea what any of the things in this game mean!

(I liked the presentation, though!)

I too followed the path closest to my own undergraduate experience, and came out with almost exactly the same amount of debt in-game as I did in real life - pretty trippy! of course then I managed to torpedo things IRL by going to grad school, which would be the grimdark sequel to this game...
