Time limit?
So I've never really sat myself down and played this game but now I really want to. Does the game have an overarching time limit in where I need to beat the game by a certain in-game date or can I play it at my lesiure?

You can play it in however much time you want. The only sort of "time limit" you get is when you begin hacking, then the website you're hacking begins to track you, and you have to complete your mission before they finish, or disconnect if you can't.

Ah ok cool. I was asking because of the monthly fee you get for your computer that I read so I didn't know if that's in "real time" or if 1 minute in real life is an hour in-game or a day in-game. :P

The game is in pseudo-real tme. That is - one minute is one minute, unless you fast forward, where one minute can be a second or a milisecond.

Only the storyline makes a time limit in the game, if you follow a certain path. Then the game should end for you around May 20th because everything around you died.

So the whole monthly fee thing I won't have to worry about since one month is one month irl.

One month CAN be one month. It depends if you fast forwarded (likely) or not to get there.

The monthly fee is explained in the game - it is simply rental for your gateway computer. I mean come on, the company gives great security unless ordered to get the dog out of the way by federal police.

Yeah I know WHY the monthly fee is there. I just didn't want to really worry about it to where I'm rushing.

As long as you can pay it, it has no effect on the game. ^^

I think you get disavowed or something if you don't have the coin to pay it though, but it'd take a game mod that can target your bank account for transfers for that to happen (i.e Onlink).

Mmk cool. I'll start playing it soon then. Thanks!
