Staying alive...

Sims competitor Paralives has shown off their characters for the first time in a YouTube video, which will be linked below. 

The video shows off the character editor Paramaker. It allows players to edit the height of characters, the clothes, and shoes they wear, their hair color along with more things that are yet to be shown off.

The game Paralives is being made by Paralives Studio, which is headed by "video game industry veteran" Alex Massé. There are 4 employees currently working on the game, with more to be added due to the game's Patreon, which currently is listed at bringing in over $22k a month, over 15k above where it was only a short time ago and is the #3 Patreon gaming project.

Paralives is described as a doll house life simulation that will be coming to both PC and Mac. In the game, player's will be able to build homes, create Parafolks and manage their lives within their homes and in the open world town that they live in. The game will feature "innovative build tools" that are easy to use but offer enough complexity for even the most advanced builder. There is also a simulation mode where players can explore a city that's full of events and people to meet that will help their characters grow and live a happy life... or not, if that's what they're into.

The game is not limited to a grid, so players can build walls of any length and at any angle. People can recreate their own real-life homes or whatever they want with their own in-game measuring tape that can recreate exact dimensions. Customizable object colors and textures are also in the game, so if you want to upgrade a single bed to a king bed that can be done as simply as pulling the corner anchors and making the bed larger.

If you're interested in Paralives, be sure to check it out on Steam.
