Publisher Iceberg Interactive and Greek indie developer immersionFX are elated to announce the Steam launch of The Good Life (PC, 2012) after it was Greenlit by the Steam Community earlier this year. The Steam launch features an enhanced edition over the previous retail release, with the addition of Trading Cards and Achievements, as well as graphical updates and new features such as fishing.
Developer immersionFX’s Manolis Tsotros says: “The Good Life is a very laid back sandbox game for people looking for an experience that doesn’t involve shooting and killing, but focuses on the awesome life one could have when living on a tropical island running a small boating company. As a tropical paradise blend of simulation, tycoon and time-management, we strongly feel The Good Life will offer a much welcome escape from the fact that in reality Winter is coming (in our part of the world, at least).”
A new teaser trailer is also launched today, revealing the beautiful environments of The Good Life, mixed with famous quotes. The teaser trailer plus new screenshots can be downloaded via this link. The trailer is now also streaming on Iceberg’s Youtube channel here.
The Good Life will become available on Steam later today at an SRP of $9.99 with a 20% launch week discount. http://store.steampowered.com/app/293340
