Fall in love with your little family in Tiny Life, a pixel-art The Sims

By - | Views: 23,801

Tiny Life is The Sims without EA and done in pixel art. There's a fresh free Beta out, the final one before Steam Early Access in 2023.

Here you control a set of people that live together, take care of all their needs, build up their lives or see how far you can push them. The new Beta update added in quite a lot like a thrifty personality type, goofy and confident emotional traits, a "perfect painter" life goal, an accessibility menu, the ability to cheat on a partner (ouch) with mess that comes after, the addition of more emotional feedback being added for different things, a festive tree for those of you getting into the holiday spirit and much more.

See the original trailer below, it's a little older and it's added a lot since then but it gives you a good overall idea:

I just grabbed the Mac Beta and it crashes immediately. I am using MacBook Air M2 do you expect it to run?

Thanks

I would suggest asking the developer directly, or seeking help on a mac website.

I've tried this before, it's not a bad game! It reminds me a lot of the older Sims 1 rather than the modern abominations

This could be perfect for me. I would like some sims sometimes, but they seem to be awful, bloated, clumsy and they take forever to load.

Sims with capable modding community would be awesome :D

No, Mr. Bond. I expect it to die.

Really neat game, unfortunately they kinda messed up/politicized the german translation, not sure if on purpose or by accident.
Anyway I will definitely check it out again this Winter, I would love to see Sims getting some competition in the long run!
