  • Life is like a videogame.

    You start with no tools. Some character comes at you and says something you must do. You don't know exactly what you are looking for, having almost no clue, but you still hang around a bit caring little about the dangers. At some point you start a path because you know you have a journey to complete.

    If you run too fast, you miss important things.

    If you get the coins, you achieve some rewards that helps you in your way. But if you start to worry too much with the money, your time will probably end before you reach the close.

    If you explore paths, you can find some good surprises and rewards. But if you start wandering much through routes that you know that won't lead anywhere, just for curiosity, you might end up getting lost or losing your time and life.

    Sometimes it's ok to not read the signs, but sometimes they can save you.

    Sometimes you discover new abilities you can do that you didn't know you could.

    Sometimes you have to let your best friend outside the haunted castle and face the fears alone.

    You may die in the middle of your way. But if you believe you still have some lives to live, perchance you come back.

    And, the most important thing: have a pleasant experience. Make it enjoyable and don't get obsessed with victory.
