Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on Feb 20, 2023
Every clothe you can buy for your character is obtain with a sort of loot box system, and the chances to get a valuable item is very rare. Also, every 10th trial or so, you're granted with a chance to get a better item.
Competition reported on Feb 20, 2023
It's always a competition. The whole point is to judge people's designing skills and to get your own design judged. Every month, you get rewarded depending on how many levels you played but also on the notes you obtained from the vote. You can vote for your own design if it shows up during the voting part.
Fear of Missing Out reported on Feb 20, 2023
It's so hard to have currencies that even just a day off is hard to compensate afterwards. There's dozens of rewards everyday. You also risk getting evicted from your guild if it's a competitive one.
Aesthetic Manipulations reported on Feb 20, 2023
They have those kawaii little characters everywhere, telling you to "donate materials to help a friend in need" or to remind you that "the more you play, the better you'll get".
Variable Rewards reported on Feb 20, 2023
So. Many. Rewards. And there's mostly just random and end up being useless. I cannot stress this enough.
Illusion of Control reported on Feb 20, 2023
The game can make you feel that you're good at designing, or better than the others if you're high in ranking. Is it real though? After days and days of playing this mobile game, are you a professional interior designer now?
Complete the Collection reported on Feb 20, 2023
When you complete an outfit, you obtain rewards. There are about a hundred of outfits to compose in total, and most of them are only obtainable with the highest currency of the game, that yout can obtain by paying real money.
Badges / Endowed Progress reported on Feb 20, 2023
Certain special outfits or frames for your avatar are available only after achieving some accomplishments in the game.
Encourages Anti-Social Behavior reported on Feb 20, 2023
It's a competitive game and the only goal is to get higher in the ranking. Some people just copy the last room that ranked #1 and get a lot of points from it, without ever designing anything themselves. When I vote for designs, I've seen the same design 10 times for the same room pitch. The name of the players were all different.
Reciprocity reported on Feb 20, 2023
You can donate or receive materials everyday, from your guild members or friends outside of your guild. The game encourages this donate x donate system.
