My friends and I are all working professionals and rarely get time to meet up and chat so NP has been a good sort of socialising + side fun for us. However, we’ve noticed that the game can be pretty consuming (if you allow it) with constant checks etc during work. We’ve played the game currently on real time with all standard settings.
Apart from good ol’ will power (which might lead to a lost star or two) if there were a combination of settings that would allow us to only dedicate a small window of time to make moves/discuss? I’ve yet to try out the turn-based option for this game as we are still currently finishing our first one and I’d like to have all this sorted before starting the next one (as a few aren’t interested if its this time consuming).
Though from just reading the information turn based with a 24 hour window might be best? What are the differences with turn based to real time? I imagine that unlike real time you don’t need to be on the hour checking for reactionary moves and you just react per player move tick.
I’ve also thought of maybe pausing the game during the day and then proccing ticks at night in a 4 hour window then pausing again before bed, but this feels arguably too difficult for what we want.
Thanks in advance, love this game!
