Student abroad – survival kit
Mariolina Pacelli, Federica De Fraia, Gulcan Selcuk
The first feeling you have in your first few months abroad will be to total freedom: no one will decide when to wake up, eat, study or sleep. Your parents are far away and your Professor doesn’t give a damn about how frequente the lessons are: it is your responsibility.
Its up to you to use this freedom to the best way… or the worst way.
Have fun, live fully your experience off-site, but remember why you’re there: you owe it to your parents, but you owe it above all to yourself.
Manage your time
- Learn the basics of personal productivity: if you are a student abroad, you don’t have to worry about only the university, but also of what to eat tonight and bills to pay.
- Stop procrastinating: there is a “disease” that unites thousands of students, is called: procrastination.
At the beginning of the game you have to create your avatar. You can create it in your own image and likeness. You have to insert your personal dates: your city abroad; the name and the address of your university abroad; the language of the city that hosts you; the day when you have to pay your rent; the time of the alarm; the time of the lessons.
You have to play to earn “coins”. With your coins you can buy in the Game’s shop concerts/parties/markets/events/museums/little trips/train discount tickets.

It consists in a really noisy alarm and you can stop it only after solving a logic game (math exercises, memory games, questions…)
• Pay the rent
This mini-game is unlocked only in the day when you have to pay the rent of your apartment(in the reality). The best example to explane this game it’s like Temple Run or Subway surf.
