How should I determine which jobs I should prioritize?

It can be an initially grueling task when determining how best you should go about the numerous months leading up to your 20th birthday in the Colony. But don’t be too deterred since the game requires you to play as every type of player character you can for the full story, and this means how exactly you shape them into who they become, including which skill sets and jobs they end up preferring.

This all comes into play in how you develop and level up specific skills, befriend others in the colony via affiliating to their own skill preferences, and aiming for different outcomes and endings in each life. The game is all about making new memories. By honing in on particular job paths, you will be rewarded with new experiences each and every time to open up more story paths and other unlocks including within the gallery and perks that aid you in the card challenges.

So if you are shaping your player character to become a fighter, someone capable of holding down the fort from alien attacks, be our guest. Or maybe you would prefer to a farmer, or aid in the quest of finding a cure from the Shimmer disease. The choice is ultimately yours to make, and one in which the game requires you to play around with to experience every possible past life your player character can experience.
