Circadian City

If you're looking for a new life simulation game, Circadian City may be your next choice when it launches next year.

Seeking to have you enjoy playing day-to-day mundane events in a magical land, Circadian City puts you in the role of a recent citizen moving to the titular city. After landing a job they have to live and do what's expected of those who live. Make friends, make love, and make money. You'll be going on quests for these things, and you have to keep up with your friendships or you'll end up growing apart from the other characters. So make sure you take your friends to book stores and out to movies to keep the friendship going.

You also can't play the game the same way every time, as the city will procedurally generate, giving you new versions to explore every new game. This way you don't get to easily repeat the same winning process every time you play the game.

The game is being developed by Nowhere Studios, who also put out moody 2.5d puzzle platformer Monochroma. Burak Tezateser, the studio's founder and also one of their designers, had the following to say about the game:

Circadian City expands on the life sim genre by giving players control of the whole day including sleep, avoiding the gifts-equal-love trope in favor of maintaining more realistic relationships in an unusual setting filled with well fleshed-out NPCs, and more. Time spent sleeping is just as important as that spent awake, and players will find many ways to entertain themselves in both modes, especially with all the features we plan to add in Early Access.

Circadian City launches into Early Access on Q1 2020, with a full launch and a Nintendo Switch version in Q4 2020.
