Good bones - needs improvement.


Overall the idea behind the game is a good one and it is relatively simple to play. That being said, I think it could really use some improving.

I would like this game more if the choices and life trajectory were more sequential. What I mean is that the choices you make should lead (or not lead) to other life events. More than just the stats going up or down. Like if I choose to study political science at a university, then the career options that follow should be in that field < for example.

Also, I would like to see more story lines involved. Like a brief description of how your choices have impacted your life ( in addition to the stars change). For example, if I'm married and choose to have an affair it could say something like "your affair has caused your wife to no longer trust you. She is consisting divorce. Your children are angry and have made it apparent they no longer want to speak to you". Then other choices could be impacted too. Like you could be given the choice of going to counseling with your wife or getting a divorce along with a statement such as "your wife has decided she wants to work things out. Will you go to counseling with her?"

Fun short term, glitchy


I enjoyed this game as much as I enjoyed the first of its kind, Alter Ego. I played this game for probably 12 hours - reckoned I got my money’s worth, but there’s some glitches in here. For example, if your spouse dies, you’re still in a relationship. The glitches don’t kill the game, but it does make it not as variable as it could be.



The lack of gay characters signals to me that this is not for me.

Life sims are tricky because the developers inevitability send a message about how they believe life should be lived

For instance this game actually penalizes the choice to post photos online which I think is ridiculous

Either the developers need to think carefully about what message they are sending with their content (or lack of) or they actually are intentionally leaving out certain sorts of people

If it’s the former, I may return to this game in the future but if it’s the later i have zero interest in ever giving another chance

And just to be clear the bones of this game are solid. Some may just not like this sort of game and That’s fine but this is my jazz and
