Nirvana is just a slightly different experience than Bitlife but with the same life-building concepts. The Creator has given you the task of living different lives for 750 years and must face multiple choices that affect your character, shaping them morally and emotionally as their life goes on. Swipe event cards left and right to make choices. However, some choices may lead to your character's untimely grave if one of your stats gets all the way to zero. You will need to find a way to keep a healthy balance of them all, or must move on to the next soul in an attempt to do better.
