Change is a survival game where you play a homeless person trying to make it against the odds. It's intentionally hard to do well as you explore an endless city that's different every time you play.

You choose from five different characters each with their own backstory and maladies. Through all manner of events, your approach and decisions determines how the story ends. Each day offers limited time. Will you find companions, develop kindness, find friendship, spend the night in police stations, parks or shelters or spend time at bars?

All the while you must manage your hunger, hygiene, happiness, crime levels, street reputation, study levels and other stats as you try to survive and escape the homeless life.
