The Good Life, the tropical paradise simulation is a free roaming simulation set in a visually stunning 3D tropical environment. Play an intriguing combination of gameplay styles; part ship simulation, part time-management, part tycoon and 100% fun. A villa ashore, your own yacht, a stunning sunset, sandy beaches and see-through waters. Live the life you always dreamed of on your way to becoming the area's top dog.


  • A sandbox game that allows players to explore an open ended world environment independently from the game's main objectives
  • Combines boat simulation, time management and tycoon-style of selling/buying
    goods.
  • The provided tropical environment is a fictitious island complex with luxurious hotels, villas, bars or even ancient tourist attractions - just about everything you'd expect to see in a luxury vacation destination.
  • The game features an ultra realistic tropical water / ocean. Your view of the world can be from over-water as well as underwater.
  • The game offers emergent gameplay; by allowing you to deal with tourists and buy/sell properties in ports, it gives you the chance to not only interact with the game world, but to alter and influence it as well.
  • Unlockables: select among 6 boat types (taxi boat, sailboats, speedboats or yachts) that are unlocked as the game progresses, each one with its own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Realistic docking simulation based on physics is a technique that must be mastered in the game.
  • Realistic weather conditions and 24hr time of day zone.
  • Bonus missions: To enhance gameplay experience, bonus missions include seeking of
    treasures underwater, rescuing swimmers, pirate attacks, photo safaris, boat chases etc. There are 5-6 in-game missions with increased variety that the player must complete successfully to gain the maximum amount of money.
  • Rated: Everyone. Suitable for all ages, men or women.

Mega Sale, 55% OFF!

News

We are nearing release of a major TGL update. For this reason, and to thank you all, we now give a 55% discount! Go and grab your copy!

Desura Digital Distribution

About the new release, we made the game faster in the in-between rides, added more tycoon stuff, the fishing feature, visual enhancements and a handful of other ("most-wanted") features (like multiple-saves, etc) but, yet, we're a few months away from release, because we want to do a closed beta test with game's fans this time around.

Important note:
All proven customers are eligible to free upgrade to the new version that will come out in a few months.

Thank you all for your support.

Hi, just saw this game, have a few questions if you don't mind:

1. xbox controller support?
2. average game length?
3. any replay value? (e.g. randomisation, new game + etc)
4. are there any timed gameplay elements (i.e. you have 3 minutes to complete xyz), or can you take your time with it?
5. max resolution it runs at? windowed mode?

Thanks,
D

Hi,

1. not yet, planning to.
2. endless game, like in Monopoly. In the add-on we'll provide in a couple of months, there will be an ending to the game when you manage to bankrupt all your NPC opponents.
3. Randomisation is used in every aspect of the game (missions, tycoon elements, game props & pop ups, port life, NPC achievements, etc). You never get to play the same game again.
4. Yes. You have x minutes to complete a tourist mission.
5. Gets max resolution from windows settings. Has a windowed mode too.

Hope this helps! Cheers.

Without anything happening on the island it's not interesting to me. Dead Island without Zombies would be as boring as this.

Where is the demo? The youtube video mentions it, but I can't find it. I'm really interested in this, but I need to know its going to run ok on my system first.

I'd like to see a demo as well, or at least a gameplay video. For guys like me, $20 is an investment.

Don't vote it down because of farcry 3, farcry 3 had potential too, it just didn't have much "aftergame" material to do once you finish. This looks like a nice sandbox and to have these interactive moment side missions is great.
