On Neko Atsume and Lifestyle Creep
Abigail Welhouse

One of my favorite stories an old supervisor told me was about how his stepmother and mother had a little rivalry going on. Both of them had Farmville and while his stepmother was trying to organically (no pub intended) tend to her crops, his mother was spending money on the game and progressing a lot faster. Because he could see his stepmom was getting frustrated, my supervisor went to his dad and was like, “You do landscaping. Can’t you help her?” To which the dad replied, “I would, only… IT’S NOT REAL.”
