An exciting new entry to the life sim genre

Back in September 2018, professional game developer and artist, Alex Massé, began creating their dream life simulation game, Paralives. Then, 10 monts later, the game was unveiled to the world in a Twitter post, and the community went wild for it.

Due to the hugely positive response from the community, Massé decided to begin working full time on the game, and promises to bring exciting new features to the life simulation genre, such as custom lot sizing and flexible furniture customisation.

No price or release date has been announced for the game yet, but we can confirm that the game will be available for Windows and Mac via Steam, and will support user-generated content on the Steam Workshop.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][divider line_type=”No Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column_text]

Flexible building tools

Although the game is still in early development, we’ve already seen some incredible details.

The video below demonstrates how easy and flexible building will be. Players will be able to click and drag a room into existence, free from the restrictions of a grid.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vm08XAI55Vk”][vc_column_text]However, if you’re like me and like some control over lining up objects, then you will be pleased to know that it will be possible to enable and customise a grid in the settings menu.

In addition, there will also be an in-game measuring tape tool that will allow players to replicate their own home or any other real world building.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column_text]It appears, so far, that every object in the game offers complete customisation. For example, you can stretch windows and curtains to any size, change different parts of and object such as the curtain rod, and even add accessories to furniture, such as tablecloths.

It’s also no surprise that a colour wheel and pattern selector will also be included, allowing for endless possibilities when decorating your Para’s homes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41FM7X5TivQ”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column_text]

Simulation Mode

Paralives will offer an open world experience. That means you’re free to explore the world and won’t be interrupted by loading screens. So, when your Parafolk leave their homes, you will be able to watch them walk, drive or even horseback ride to their next destination. Maybe something unexpected will happen along the way?

The design of the characters has not been announced yet, but we expect to see them in a reveal trailer set to drop in the next few months.

Very little has been revealed about simulation mode yet, but according to the August AMA and an interview with the developer, we can expect that the game will feel alive, and the town will be filled with cute simulated people living their best parallel lives.

We’re so excited for Paralives, are you?

  1. This game we has it been my whole life?? I just found out about it from twitter and I thought it was out and now I’m almost in tears because it’s not. Now I’ll never look at the sims the same and I’ll judt be thinking of this game!

    1. From what I’ve read, should be sometime this year… hope this helps!

      0
    2. There could be a chance though that they don’t release this year and instead just show the parafolk and gameplay

      0
  2. Will there be teen pregnancy’s in the game or would you need a separate mod for that?

    0
    1. Not too sure if teen pregnancies would pass the T for Teen rating, as PEGI are quite strict about that. If it does make it to the game, we will announce it! There could be modding support for this eventually, too.

      0
  3. How much will the game cost when it comes out? Hopefully not as much as Sims did at first ($40). Also, will it have packs and extra stuff you need to buy? One last thing, will people be able to make/ download CC?

    0
    1. A price has not yet been announced. As soon as we know, we’ll update you guys! The game will have many free updates. No DLC plans have been announced yet, but could come much later. Regarding user-generated content, the game will support Steam Workshop, so yes, there will be CC and mods! I will add this information to the article. 🙂
