“Paralives,” the highly anticipated life simulation game and emerging competitor to “The Sims,” has made significant strides in its development this year. The game’s development team, led by Alex Massé, has infused the game with a vast array of new items, totaling over 800 additions, which even includes an anime body pillow among other unique inclusions.
The recent update from the developers, shared on Twitter, highlights the extensive work done in 2023. While programmers were busy enhancing gameplay features, the artistic team was dedicated to expanding the game’s inventory.
This expansion includes a variety of items, ranging from outdoor elements like trees and rocks to a plethora of indoor essentials such as clothing, furniture, doors, and rugs. The attention to detail is evident in the diversity of items now available in the game, catering to a wide array of player preferences and styles.
One of the more quirky additions, as highlighted by fans in the tweet’s replies, is a pink anime body pillow, showcasing the developers’ commitment to offering a wide range of personalization options. The game also now features numerous food items, including pizzas and baguettes, adding to the immersive experience of managing daily life in the game.
Paralives has been consistently sharing work-in-progress shots over the past years, giving fans glimpses of what to expect, such as a cozy living room setup.
In terms of gameplay, the life sim boasts a key advantage over its well-known counterpart, “The Sims,” with characters that possess more autonomy, including the ability to use the bathroom independently.
For fans of “The Sims” who are looking forward to similar features in “Paralives,” there’s good news. The game will allow players to experience the dramatics of life simulation, including the ability to lead characters to their demise, albeit with a bit more effort involved.
Massé’s update ends with a promise of showcasing progress on the game’s live mode “soon.” This anticipation adds to the growing excitement among the gaming community, eager to see how “Paralives” will differentiate itself further from its more established competitor.
