There are so many simulation games out there that it's hard to keep up with them, gamers everywhere seeming to want to know what it would be like to live life as a Goat in Goat Simulator or as a destructive, chaotic-evil goose bent on wreaking havoc in the Untitled Goose Game. Get out of the way, flight and farming simulators—weird, unique experiences are what gamers are after these days, and with those weird niche experiences comes the desire to see what it would be like to live as a bum in Bum Simulator. Bum Simulator is set for release this year in 2020, and within Steam and other gaming communities, potential bums are anxiously waiting for the game to be dropped. So, what's all the hype about?
Objectives of Bum Simulator
Bum Simulator is pretty straightforward in its motivations… you live life on the street as a bum. That makes it about as open-world as it gets, with endless possibilities toward what you are able to do with all of your free time bumming around. You can spend your time learning to adapt and survive the best you can, or you can seek revenge on those responsible for putting you out on the streets in the first place. You could also spend your time building a name for yourself on the street and gaining a reputation as a local legend that everyone will look out for. You can vandalize all of your favorite vending machines to get some great snacks or learn to share space in a community of what is affectionately known as the rat people, who call themselves Radz. Really, there's nothing you can't do, letting you fulfill your wildest fantasies (we guess) about being a bum.
The premise of the game itself is already a little ridiculous and silly, so of course, as one might expect, there are ragdoll graphics that really take things to the next ridiculous level. Even throwing an empty glass bottle at another person can send them flying through the air completely limp. Otherwise, the graphics operate on an engine that gives you simple effects. There's nothing really extraordinary about the graphics or the sound itself, but really, it's what you do with those graphics that counts since there is so much to take advantage of that.
Pros of Bum Simulator
- Open-world concept gives you plenty of playing possibilities
- Potential replay value as you tackle different aspects of the game
- New elements are added to the game consistently with updates from the developer
Cons of Bum Simulator
- Mediocre graphics
Bum Simulator is exactly what its title suggests it to be… a chance for you to see what it would be like roughing it on the streets without actually having to pitch a tent and find a place to sleep in the cold. Its open-world design lets you wander around aimlessly getting into just about everything you could imagine, and it's definitely going to be a great way to kill a few hours in your cozy house pretending you're stuck in the winter chill without a coat.
