Climb from the bottom to streaming glory
Streamer Life Simulator by Cheesecake Inc. takes a meta approach to simulation games. It puts you in the shoes of an emerging video game streamer to work your way to the top.
A comprehensive simulation
If you’ve been toying with the idea of starting a streaming career of your own, this game is a must-play.
The game starts with a quick tutorial that sets the stage for your story to unfold. You get sent on a 10-minute quest that introduces you to the primary mechanics; after that, you're on your own.
Streamer Life Simulator takes a tycoon approach to gameplay, making you work for your goals. Both your character and channel are highly customizable, letting you become whoever you want.
The gameplay revolves around streams. However, this is where the game gets realistic, forcing you to work a day job and create poor-quality streams on the side, using a weak PC setup. The gratification comes from gradually improving, especially when you quit your job.
During your progression towards a streamer lifestyle, you also get to upgrade your PC setup. The game goes all out here, giving you plenty of personalization options that fit together realistically enough that you could use them for a real-life computer build.
You'll get involved in the titles you stream to the world in the form of minigames. Your options include Fall Guys, CS:GO, and The Witcher, although the AI is not entirely accurate in this game-in-game setting.
Where can you run this program?
The minimum system requirement for Streamer Life Simulator is Windows 7.
Is there a better alternative?
No. This game pursues a unique topic and doesn’t have notable competitors. However, if you’re interested in other titles with a meta approach to professional gaming, you can try Esports Life Tycoon or Esport Manager.
The buggy interface aside, this game executes its idea almost seamlessly. The tycoon approach, minigames, and tasks all paint a realistic, immersive picture for the player.
Should you download it?
Yes, but only if you’re interested in the topic. If you’re not passionate, you’ll find the game too casual and not engaging enough to purchase.
