Life by You: Human Body Customization

Paradox Interactive and Tectonic Studio released another gameplay video of their upcoming life simulation game Life by You.

This time around, we get to see body customization, specifically focusing on the feminine body type. Everything is controlled by sliders and there are a lot of sliders to control pretty much every aspect of the body shape. Interestingly, you can go quite far into the extremes, to proportions that are likely unrealistic, but games like this are all about self-expression, after all. 

You can customize your human in underwear for the best visibility, or check out what they'll look like with a variety of clothes on. The sliders are actionable in both situations, which can help you fine-tune the result. 

You can check it out below. 

Life by You will release in early access on Steam and the Epic Games Store for PC on September 12. The game's development is led by the studio's general manager Rod Humble, whom you may know for his works on The Sims franchise and Second Life.

The game was teased during an event a few months ago and then fully revealed a couple of weeks later with the first trailer. We also saw another gameplay video showing how you can manually control your human and even drive a car around town, on top of one showing how you can add, remove, and customize humans in your town, one showcasing the building tools, another showing how to construct a house from scratchone focusing on natureone showing how to manage a human's needs, and one showcasing a conversation.

If you're interested in simulation games, Paradox and Colossal Order also announced Cities: Skylines successor Cities: Skylines II. That's coming on October 24 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 in 2023, including Game Pass.
