Nanopesos was developed during the first few weeks of the 2019 Chilean protests, at a time when the minimum wage was approximately $400 USD.

Its purpose was not to debate whether or not it was possible to live on the minimum wage, but to portray the cost and the consequences of living that way, without resorting to extreme situations.

NOTE: Nanopesos was a solo project. However, a lovely group of volunteer translators helped me localize the game, and they are credited here.

The development of Nanopesos took about 2 weeks, but about one month passed from the time the first idea was conceived to the time it was finally released.
