Since I don’t see a topic on it, I’d thought I’d share a link to the official Paralives survey they just released. >> https://t.co/TFIrUvYEoF?amp=1
I just finished filling it out and I’m so happy they are listening to ideas for more cultural items and diversity, you guys are amazing!
The questions are what specific aspects related to your culture that you would like to see represented in the game for Body & Hair, Clothing & Accessories, Build & Buy Items, World Events & Food, Interactions & Hobbies.
I had fun filling it out, please share your ideas on the thread!10+

I did it early as a patron, I didn’t realise it was now public! I told them about Australian culture, and I left my email if they want to contact me about it. I don’t think they will, it was pretty basic stuff, but how cool would that be…7+

I took it, but I kind of struggled since I was sure anything I said would have already been mentioned anyway, plus I just didn’t think there was anything really interesting to include based on what was asked.
All I really hope for are hair accessories for little girls since I wore them a lot as a child and I see many African American girls still do.5+

I just did the survey, had a blast! I just love how interested they are in their community, I’m sure this will end up being the game of the freaking century.
Couldn’t for the life of me figure out any specific clothing, honestly the hobbies and events are more interesting to me. I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with all this information!4+

I got excited to add in my Scottish heritage. The Highland Games would be a fun event to have in the game. Where else are you going to have a festival where you compete to throw or lift heavy things the best while wearing your clan’s kilt.7+

I wrote some things regarding Slavic culture. It is sad that usually only american culture is represented in mainstream media and games. I want to learn new things and not just see again those I see always. I left my email and I hope they will contact me, we really need diverse game.5+

I went through the survey but didn’t submit anything as I think that Paralives should have it’s own culture. Trying to include the many different cultures of the world can get complicated really fast and as great as I believe this game will be, I don’t think it will be able to include all of them to everyone’s satisfaction.6+

I agree with you there, but at the same time I think it’ll help them out tremendously to learn about different cultures and what makes them unique. I don’t think they’ll end up implementing events and traditions as they are in real life, but take inspiration from them to create their own. A lot of different cultures celebrate the new year, the spring/fall equinox and even the solstices, so maybe they’ll create their own “para-celebrations” based on the existing celebrations.
I’m looking forward to finding out what they do with this information! 😀4+

While I agree that it is not possible to implement every single culture, I don’t want made up culture. Different cultures make different nations so special. I personally believe we will get some features from as many cultures as possible. It is still better to try than just give it up. Not every gender or sexuality will make it into game, but we know it will be there.2+

I’m just so glad they are even bothering to try to implement as many cultures as possible. That’s AMAZING and not something many game companies care about.3+
