In Straitened Times, you live in a commune. The commune seems to have deep religious overtones. You live with a Holy Father and a couple of Sisters. The Father wasn't so holy, and he stole a bunch of money. Now the commune has to start all over again. The commune is now located in two basement rooms in a shady hotel. You can't afford anything else, but this place is as creepy as they come. You also have to share your room and bed with another woman. Who knew living in a commune could be so bizarre?
