Life by You has been announced by Paradox Tectonic, which looks to be a new take on the life sim from their fledgeling studio that will be revealed more fully in a separate stream on 20th March. For now, here’s a little teaser trailer.
Paradox Tectonic is based in Berkeley, California, having been founded in 2019 with Rod Humble as the studio lead. Humble has a storied career, but is most notable in this context for his contributions to The Sims 2 and The Sims 3.
Paradox has a little history in eating EA’s lunch, with Colossal Order’s Cities: Skylines surpassing Sim City in 2015 to become the preeminent city building game. It will be much more challenging to surpass The Sims, with The Sims 4 still a popular and very strong entry in the series, and Maxis working on a new generation of The Sims that will feature much deeper and more nuanced customisation.
Excited? Well, set a reminder in your calendar for 4PM 20th March:
