After selecting a mode and creating an avatar, life begins! Spin the roulette wheel, and when it stops at a square, an event will occur. The events vary from square to square, but there are also different levels of "lucky," "super lucky," and "rare lucky" among the squares where good events occur, so be sure to aim carefully when you turn the roulette wheel! What's the worst that can happen? Be careful of the "near-mass", which can cause bad events.
Depending on the event and the choices you make, parameters such as intelligence, strength, and sense may change, and you may earn pocket money or awaken "talents" that affect the parameters! As you grow toward the future you envision, the number of squares will increase, such as "salary squares" and "love squares.
Vocations and Rank Up
Upon graduation from high school, students can choose whether to get a job or take the college entrance exam, and if they choose to take the college exam, they will find a job after their college career. Occupations include those that can be ranked up by meeting parameters, such as company employees and doctors, and those that require success mainly by roulette, such as baseball players and idols. The occupations that can be chosen depend on the parameters that you have grown up to that point, and your occupation is determined by roulette. So, in addition to parameters, life is not only about parameters, but also about luck! Will you survive in one profession, or will you change jobs and enjoy a variety of professions? What kind of life will you lead?
As you grow older, you meet potential partners! As you date and make a good impression, you'll have the chance to get married. You can go hard at work or live for love, but at the end of the day, the player with the most total assets will win! Make luck your friend and become a millionaire.
