The Game of Life 2 offers a contemporary spin on the original game’s winning life simulation formula. With more choices and more freedom, the gameplay translates seamlessly into a beautiful, fully animated, 3D game board!
Released in July on mobile devices, it’s both an award nominated and top ranked game on the App Store and Google Play board game charts. This version of THE GAME OF LIFE 2 brings the sequel to a new audience of players on Steam.
THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is a contemporary sequel to the classic THE GAME OF LIFE game, released on Steam in 2015. With some key changes to gameplay, Marmalade Game Studio has made the journey more relatable to our modern times. For a start, players can win the game with more than just money. All choices matter when they can earn points for Knowledge, Happiness and Wealth. There are also important crossroads set later in the game, so players can choose to get married or get that degree near the start, or further down the road!
With more choices and more freedom to live life your way, players can become a Pop Star with five dogs and a pool, or a Robotics Engineer with three kids and two degrees. Whether they’re in it for the millions or the good times, all goals are valid in THE GAME OF LIFE 2
Michael Willis, CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, said:
“Bringing a game to a new platform is always exciting, and we’re especially proud to be launching THE GAME OF LIFE 2 on Steam. We’ve been overwhelmed by the reception the game has had on mobile, and we know that players want to challenge their friends and family on PC. The GAME OF LIFE has been very successful since its release, and in making THE GAME OF LIFE 2 we not only added modern options, but modern gameplay. It’s a step forward in so many ways and I couldn’t be more proud of the team at Marmalade for bringing it to life. We can’t wait to see what the Steam community makes of it.”
Marmalade Game Studio prides itself on connecting players, whether they’re in the same room or hundreds of miles apart. With online and offline options, THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is a safe and easy multiplayer experience, even across platforms. Players can compete together via iOS, Android and now PC!
THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is the latest in Marmalade Game Studio’s roster of high quality adaptations of beloved Hasbro board games for PC, including: CLUE/CLUEDO, BATTLESHIP and the original THE GAME OF LIFE.
Hasbro’s Richard Cleveland, Vice President of Digital Gaming said:
