Like your life - but more textual

You're in control!
Release a platinum album at the age of 17, or die of old age having gotten a few Cs in school and not much else, the choice is yours.
Pass your driving test and die in a fatal accident a year later or become a famous musician and become restricted in what you can do.

Meet different people each time you play, start a relationship. Will it last?
Jobs are procedurally generated and require different qualifications to get hired.

Each year you live contains new experiences.

Updated regularly with many more features to come!

I don't plan on charging and the game is no where near complete. The Greenlight FAQ states that incomplete games are more than welcome - don't rate it on what it contains at the moment but its potential.

Heavily influenced by Real Lives <- (people don't seem to read this)

Hey there - just stumbled upon this. I was a massive fan of Real Lives (loved what it tried to do, but always felt that it could have used a few more iterations) and absolutely love that this is carrying on its legacy and seemingly fixing everything that didn't quite work in Real Lives. Rock on, looking forward to the next versions.

this is definitely a really interesting game, it's like the sims on a larger scale

I played this and added "Gallifreyan" as a race, with just a few taps of the keyboard.
Modding support is easy and clean.

@MrProfit Any features you would like to suggest to allow more freedom?

After playing:

Need waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more things to do. The school stuff is kinda cool, but you can't go back into school if your grades fail, and the game doesn't really involve alot of ecnomics. It's just you set up an expense 1000 dollars less than your income per year, and you make 1000 dollars a year. Not to mention you can't do anything with your cash except slowly raise the size of your house and plan vacations.

Game needs more freedom.
