Paralives has a early-access release date!

February 16, 2024

Paralives, the live simulation game that allows you to create your own characters called Parafolks, has announced it will be released in 2025 as an early access title.

The game, which has been in development since at least 2019, has revealed it will finally be playable as an early-access title on Steam sometime in 2025. An exact release date has not yet been revealed, but will be announced closer to the time.

Paralives is a life simulation game that takes customization and creative freedom to the next level. If you're familiar with games like The Sims, this title will be right up your street!


You'll be able to create your own characters called Parafolks using their Paramaker (PAM) tool in-game, allowing customization of character height, clothes, hair styles, facial features, body types and a huge amount of other options. It is one of the most exciting features of Paralives.

Take a look at the Paralives YouTube channel for in-game footage to get a feel for how detailed this game is going to be!

Build Mode

You'll also be able to build and design your own houses using their build mode tools, which includes being able to add flooring, paint walls, add furniture and unique elements that you can interact with.

Paralives will also support modding, allowing fans to create their own scripts and tools to enhance the game's sandbox world.


During the announcement of Paralives being released for Early Access, a new preview of the Live Mode, in which you play with your Parafolks doing everything from getting a job, improve skills, work on relationships with other Parafolks and even go to the Gym!

If you want to keep up-to-date with Paralives, we recommend adding Paralives to your Wishlist on Steam so you'll get a notification of any new updates. You can also join the Paralives Patreon to help support the game and get exclusive behind-the-scenes updates.

One of the most popular games in the life simulation game niche is The Sims, which was first released on PC in 2000. Many fans of The Sims have been looking forward to the release of Paralives due to the limited options in the current released version of The Sims 4.

Project Rene

The Sims 4 is also planning it's own huge update called Project Rene, which aims to make customization more detailed and dynamic. There is no planned release date yet for Project Rene or an announcement for The Sims 5.

The Sims 4 is currently free-to-play as a base game, with over 20 different expansions and packs you can buy as addons.
