The game starts in 2019 …
As you move further, you will finally enter the turbulent year 2020.
The next thing you know, the area is ablaze and the words “SURVIVE!” appeared on the screen. Apparently, this area is based on the Australian forest fires that lasted from September 2019 to February 2020.
As we proceeded further, COVID-19 started to spread, so we had to wear a mask and prepare to fight the virus.
As we proceeded further, we saw that the pandemic was causing a buying frenzy, and a large number of shoppers were crowding in front of the supermarket. (Just like Japan, I remember I was so worried about running out my toilet paper)
The new coronavirus also led to the need to work remotely, and online conferencing applications such as Zoom became popular; by being protected by Zoom, it was possible to go through stages to avoid the virus.
When the new coronavirus broke out, a conspiracy theory spread that the new coronavirus epidemic was caused by 5G. As if to pay homage to this, the virus is emitted from the 5G radio tower in the game.
One of the main sources of inspiration during such a turbulent year was TikTok, where Doja Cat’s dance to “Say So” became a popular TikTok hit. In 2020, TikTok was involved in a selling frenzy when President Trump said he was considering banning TikTok in the US.
Also in 2020, heavy rains caused massive flooding in China from May to July. In July of the same year, the Kyushu region of Japan also experienced a disaster caused by torrential rains.
At the end of the year, the U.S. presidential election was held, and Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, won. However, in January 2021, Trump’s supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol, which led to an uproar in which services such as Facebook, Twitch, Shopify, and Twitter banned Trump for instigating the attack.
