NACON Adds a whole new category to their Videogame Catalogue: Life Simulators


NACON and its partner studios are pleased to unveil a new series of video game simulators that focus on everyday life. There are currently five games in development that will be released under the new LIFE label: Train Life, Hotel Life, Chef Life, Surgeon Life, and Architect Life.

By uniting these games under one brand name, NACON strengthens its publishing position in this segment. In these LIFE-simulators, players can experience the life of a professional such as a surgeon, award-winning chef, or even an architect. Players can enjoy varied gameplay, combining planning, management, and specific duties of the respective profession.

“The genre of the first-person simulator, which only emerged about 10 years ago, with its mix of management and skills is increasingly popular with an ever-increasing audience, both on PC and consoles with its player-base increasing every day. Against this backdrop, new genres and stories can emerge that will appeal to both gamers and new audiences. By creating the LIFE-series and partnering with specialized studios and consultants for each profession, Nacon hopes to bring new experiences to all players. This by using the media tools already available to them, they can bring the everyday lives of many dream professions to life, ”said Benoit Clerc, Head of Publishing at NACON.
