How do I make enough money to live and keep a roof over my head?



  • I've been playing Papers Please, doing my best to go along with the more idealistic elements of the regime, without bowing to the more horrific totalitarian number-pushing and individuality quashing aspects, only to find myself destitute and at the mercy of the totalitarian forces I just mentioned.

    However, despite my sympathy for the cause and all that, I keep getting letters saying they're taking the house and everything I own... And even when I'm not getting the government turning up at my doorstep with their best kept prole-quashing boots on, I find I can barely afford to feed myself, let alone pay for unexpected bills like doctors and dentists or look after family (I think there was a dentist bill last time I played...) -- despite occasionally picking up a little bit of off-the-books work or a cypher-puzzle here and there.

    So: if anyone has any good, basic tips as to how to make enough money to survive, preferably while avoiding getting carted off to prison for my highly subversive activities checking over documents and asking people questions, it would be appreciated.

    I've been looking for guidance online, but I'm still very much struggling to provide for my basic needs.



  • First, if you accept the 1000 dollar EZIC gift, you will be found out 100% of the time... The only tactic to support your family is to get really good at examining the people quickly. For every successful entrant/reject, you get $5.

    Just have to get really good at identifying the seals, required paperwork, identifying fake city names, or city names that have the wrong province, etc. It takes practice. There is a cheat sheet of the visual stuff somewhere, but I haven't played in a while, but google may turn something cool up for you.

    Edit: This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. There are lots out there, so find one that works for you.
