Do you play games on a daily basis?
The game is so fascinating that many people become addicted.

Once you start the game, you become not wanting to lose to other players.
② Rarity of items
In the game, scenes that are difficult to capture and items that are difficult to acquire are set.
③ Endowment effect
As you continue the game, you begin to be proud of the achievements in your game.
