Tiny Life

A fun simulation game where you mess with people's lives

๐Ÿก About Tiny Life

Tiny Life is a fun simulation game that aims to capture the essence of games like The Sims series, but in an isometric pixelart style.

In the game, you control a set of people that live together in a household. You take care of their daily needs, build their skills, forge new relationships... or just mess up their entire life in whatever way you can think of!

๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ Roadmap

There's a lot of stuff planned for the game! Everything from this list that is added into the game will be part of free updates. During Early Access, you'll also encounter little green boxes in the game that will tell you about additional planned features.
This list is not exhaustive! There are a lot of planned and work-in-progress features that we want to keep secret, and some of our plans might change or be moved around during development.

๐Ÿซ‚ More Complex Relationships

While there's already friendship, romance, dating and cheating in the game, we'd like to include marriage and jealousy. We plan on expanding relationships even further after release by introducing open relationships, polyamory, and more.
Soon

๐Ÿง“ More Life Stages

In addition to the babies, children and adults we have now, we plan on adding teenager and elder life stages to the game. Death due to old age is also planned.
Soon

๐Ÿ’ƒ Social Events

Social events will include birthday parties, dinner parties, weddings, and more. You'll be able to organize them in advance, invite the people you want to attend, and earn rewards for events that go well.
Soon

๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ More Worlds

Along with the existing ability to create and share custom worlds, we'd like to add a few additional worlds to accompany Maple Plains City, Lunar Grove and Demoville.
Long-Term

๐Ÿข Improvements for Jobs

Select jobs will allow the option to work from home, giving a Tiny daily tasks to complete. After release, jobs with venues that you can actively work at are also planned.
Long-Term

โš’๏ธ More Map-Wide Employments

We plan on adding pizza deliverers, repairpeople, housekeepers and other people that you can hire to help you out.
Long-Term

๐Ÿคน Tons More Skills

We have specific plans for skills like mischief, knitting, gardening, and foraging, but more skills are on the horizon, of course!
Long-Term

๐Ÿš— Better Transport

Right now, every Tiny owns their own vehicle. We'd like to improve upon this system greatly by adding the ability to buy vehicles, as well as use various types of public transport.
Long-Term

๐Ÿ‘œ More Sets

We'd like to collaborate with more artists from the community to bring more batches of themed content your way. If you're interested in working on a set with us, don't hesitate to reach out!
Long-Term

๐ŸŽฎ Full and Console Release


Once Tiny Life leaves Early Access, its full release will also be available on consoles, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, and possibly more. You'll also be able to buy it on additional stores like GOG and the Epic Games Store.

๐Ÿท Even More Public Lots

There will be a lot more public lots in the future, as well as more complex lot types with multiple states, like festival spots and community centers.
Long-Term

๐ŸŽ„ Seasons

Eventually, we want to add seasons, weather, and holidays into the game.
Long-Term

๐Ÿ• Pets

Pets like cats, dogs, and possibly others, will be available in the future to join your household and make your Tinies happy.
Long-Term

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Better Customizable Pronouns

Unfortunately, customizable pronouns for in-game text aren't as easy to implement as we'd like, as we discussed at length in a Tiny Technicalities post. Since gameplay features are our priority right now, this is a long-term plan.
Long-Term

๐ŸŒ Multiplayer

Steam and LAN multiplayer will allow multiple players to play together on the same save file and even in the same household. This feature will be added later down the line.
Long-Term

๐Ÿง So Much More


This list isn't exhaustive by any means. Not only are there way more things that we'll want to add in the future, but there are also a couple of secret features that we don't want to tell you about yet. Stay tuned!
