Youtubers Life is a life simulation game with business simulation elements, and influences from the Game Dev Tycoon and The Sims video games. The player has to manage a character trying to build a career as a YouTube personality. In addition to managing the creation of videos for their channel, the player must also manage the character's education and social life. As the character develops, the player also must manage the character's employees and growing content network. Opportunities to create videos for friends, creating videos through advertising agreements, and the revenue generated by each video's ads enable the character to purchase upgrades to their equipment and housing, and access resources to level up their character's skills.
YOUTUBERS LIFE is an app and a PC game that simulates life as a gamer with a YouTube channel. First, customize your avatar's look, then configure your in-game computer setup and make your first "video." To do so, choose a game from the shelf in your avatar's bedroom, choose a few reactions and commentary options for your avatar while playing the game, and then publish your video and earn views and subscribers. As gameplay progresses, you earn in-app currency that you can use to buy upgraded equipment (such as a new microphone) or new video games to play in your videos. In addition to managing your growing YouTube empire, your avatar must sleep, study, and eat. The game's main objective is to balance managing your avatar's online persona while also maintaining an offline life.
YouTubers Life 2 is a fun experience when it works blending a life simulator and adventure game fairly well. The core gameplay loop of making content and growing your channel. NewTube City is fun to explore and full of interesting characters. Unfortunately my experience with the game was filled with bugs and crashes that occurred far to frequently to outweigh the fun to be had. For the $29.99 and $39.99 price tags attached to this game the lack of general game stability is unfortunate. I recommend you wait for patches before diving into what could be a fun experience down the line.

Youtubers Life for PC has collected a lot of positive ratings and reviews on Steam. A fresh breeze for the players was revealed in a completely new theme of the game which involves life as a Youtuber, usually distant to most people, which in itself can be very attractive. In combination with nice graphics and elements of the economy, the game developers have created a management video game that is quite engaging, and at the same point great for some chill out time.
Youtubers Life is a life Simulation Game developed by the Spanish studio U-Play Online. It was released for PC through Steam on May 18th, 2016, and was then ported to iOS on September 22nd, 2016. Later on, an Updated Re-release Youtubers Life: OMG Edition was launched on November 20th, 2018 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch as well. On October 19th, a sequel was released.
The main character is the #1 YouTuber in the world, and then narrates his/her humble beginnings. With business simulations, your character has to become the most viewed YouTuber in the world, while also taking care of their social life and education.
Youtubers Life sees you balancing life with filming yourself for the digital public's consumption. Views, subscribers, and revenue are the primary metrics. And with only so many hours in the day to eat, sleep, and edit videos, hunger, fatigue and friendship seem like speed bumps en route to the more important goals of vlogging.
Excelling in YouTube stardom destroyed my in-game social life. For some weeks, I was under the impression I was doing well, staying on top of school, eating normally, and filming myself playing video games on a regular basis, when suddenly friend after friend texted me with "Good riddance, have a good life." My in-game heart winced. Initially I could only use my computer for one thing at a time, including video rendering, shopping and speaking with pals. I neglected the latter. My videos buffered while my friendships died.
Though it's framing of a modern human lifestyle comes off as deeply concerning, the specifics of creating in-game YouTube videos are novel. Every non-YouTube activity earns you ideas for comments and the energy to execute them. When you film, this manifests as cards representing "reactions." They bolster certain factors, scripting, editing, sound, and you want to weave these cards together as seamlessly as possible. Editing videos involved fitting the segments together like literal jigsaw pieces, and creating better flow between the clips amplified their qualities. Some of these cards, like using a licenced song or video clip, have huge stats, but come at the risk of getting busted for copyright violation. That seemed hypocritical coming from a game that will probably get some letters from the legal teams at Nintendo and the New York Yankees over in-game apparel.
The current version of Youtubers Life only has the Pewdiepie-type, Let's Player mode available, meaning the celebrity lifestyles of makeup tutorial makers, ASMR role-players, unboxers, and the human punching bags who do shoebox ukulele covers are hopefully on the way. Of course, this also means I played a game where I watched an avatar play games so that others can watch him playing a game, which makes me feel exhausted and old.
Perhaps the YouTube stardom life simply isn't for me. I got many positive comments on the fake videos I made, but the revenue was sluggish chump change. While gossip websites asked me to confirm or deny rumours about me, I still lived with my mom with only a PlayStation and a waste bin to my name. Maybe I should appreciate the life I am leading, as an uncelebrated person who writes about games in a worn sweatshirt instead of a better dressed person playing video games shrieking and doing Christopher Walken impersonations over them.

Start off with the first YouTubers Life, add a dollop of The Sims, a dash of Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing (hold the Tom Nook), mix it all together and bam: You've got YouTubers Life 2! There's a lot to like about the new game, official YouTuber partnerships included, and in many ways it's an improvement over the original. The influencer life isn't all smooth sailing though, and can prove downright infuriating at times. But where does YouTuber's Life 2 go wrong, and what does it excel at?
There are many things you can do in Youtubers Life 2, from taking Instalife pictures to collecting recycling. But what about dancing? There are two ways you can dance in the game, one being a lot easier than the other.
The city setting also allows there to be various tasks/quests outside of creating videos and the use of fictional social media. Using Instalife for selfies often led to the game frustratingly freezing and having to restart. A more open setting allowed U-play to bring in, often tongue in cheek, pop culture references. From film posters to appearances from famous real-life YouTubers which gave Youtubers Life 2 an unexpected quirky sense of humour I enjoyed.
Overall I enjoyed playing Youtubers Life 2 quite a bit. The setting was fun and entertaining and I found the gameplay mechanics to be straightforward, especially when done often. The loose story was engaging and I enjoyed the use of social media, streaming, etc beyond simply recording videos. There were some glitches forcing me to restart the game that soured it for me a little. It looks and sounds great and if you like lifestyle simulators, I have no doubt that Youtubers Life 2 will be your cup of tea.
Hailing from Glasgow I play a variety of games but a big fan or RPGs and action adventure games. However I do try and review other genres of games. In real life I work in a call centre so with gaming am happy to let video game characters do the talking. 041b061a72
