While you are playing the game, you may ask: "Why is there no pause button? And no mute button?"
The answer is simple.
This is not a game, it is a simulation of life.
You can't suddenly pause while you are running in real life, nor can you mute your surroundings.
This lack of features is a feature in itself because it is an accurate representation of life.
JK I'm just too lazy to add them in.
