Youtubers Life 2, a growing interest in online gaming

There’s no denying that eSports have become the equivalent of ‘normal’ sports throughout the years. We have seen stadia get filled with gaming enthusiasts to see famous League of Legends players duke it, CS players defuse many bombs and even see the Zerg swallow whole bases in hectic StarCraft II matches. There are even games inspired by these events, as well as the entire streaming scene. This brought us to the release of YouTubers Life back in 2018.

We concluded that this game had very nice ideas, it was also a bit underwhelming because of the low-budget production value. We found the game to be very entertaining gameplay-wise, but a bit too linear, and it all was overshadowed by dated graphics and poor sound design. Nonetheless, the game was picked up by many, and also loved by a fairly big audience. Soon after a physical release was announced for Youtubers Life OMG! and now we arrive at the next major announcement, a proper sequel to the first game, Youtubers Life 2.

We can only speculate as to how this new entry will turn out of course. For now, we only have the statement from Quim Garrigós – Project Director & Co-Founder at UPLAY Online.

“The original Youtubers Life has been such a big success and continues to be to this day, but the kinds of things content creators are both doing and achieving now is monumentally different to the world we first looked to simulate back in 2016,” continues Garrigós. “We wanted that original premise to grow with the content creators themselves, which is why we’ve been working on expanding our offering significantly with Youtubers Life 2. There’s nobody else, operating in this space, nobody else simulating Youtubers either big or small, so we’re proud to stand as the go-to game for gamers looking to live out their content creating dreams.”

Games like this, of course, mimic certain charms of the eSports lifestyle of many professional gamers, albeit at a casual pace. It shows that these elite gamers are not to be underestimated, and that a lot of time and training is spent on mastering their specific skill sets. For casual enthusiasts, things have become increasingly easy to keep track of what goes on in this industry with dedicated sites such as Sites like this help players keep track of what goes on in the business.

We also see an evolution in how certain events are handled. In the past we have actually attended tournaments which were broadcasted in different cinemas, making this a perfect outing with likeminded friends and family, while even enjoying a snack or two. Of course, with the ongoing global pandemic events such as this have become hard. Luckily, in the eSports world a lot of things happen online, thus it’s easier to connect with each other via this digital landscape.

In conclusion, we can clearly see a new world opening up, and that many developers are also shifting towards online play, hoping their game gets picked up by the masses. Sadly, it’s often only quirky titles that do get more attention than others, such as we have seen with Rocket League, Fortnite and many others.
