InstLife 1.0.2

Saving! And some quality of life improvements.

Saving

This feature took us a lot longer than expected to implement due to certain parts of the game needing to be rewritten, but it seems to be working great for the most part! I’m sure we will be slated for missing a thing or two. We appreciate your patience.

You can only have one life saved at a time, and this save is deleted upon character death.

To save a game, navigate to the menu (gear icon) and click ‘Save Game’. The game is also saved when you click ‘Quit Game’.
To load a game, navigate to the menu (gear icon) and click ‘Load Game’.

You can enable autosave (when you minimise the app, get a phone call etc.) from the Settings menu, although this is a little experimental at the moment.

    Thanks for the update I didn’t get it yet cause I’m always the 50 percent that gets it the next day but can tell it’ll be great. Next thing you should add is a more realistic job system like you know how you can ask for a pay raise how about you can decide if the employees under you get a pay rise or not and just m9re job options you know

    Love the new update, but I just noticed a bud where every time you go clubbing and you’ve already tried playing the lottery, it lets you try again. Essentially, you can have as many tries as you want at the lottery without ageing if you play it and then go to the club

    Great game! I really appreciate the simplicity of it. Some suggestions: Please add grandchildren and siblings to notifications in the life. And the children’s marriages.

  • Filipino Guy

    Suggestions: is it possible to have other careers, like being a politician or actor, or athlete? That’s all, thanks! 🙂

  • James Lewis

    Amazing Job. Perhaps an acting/director career similar to artist and musician career.

    Finally!
    Can’t wait to use these new features!
    I actually kind of liked the obituary bug because I got to see what happened to my partners and children after I died. Would it be possible to introduce a feature so you can see when your family died on the obituary?

    Add grandkids please

    What!?! You fixed the obituary aging bug. That was the best part in the game, because you get to see how your child or children died after you died. Please undo the bug fix. I always like that part of the aspect where you get to see what age your children dies at and how they die.

    Im SO happy because of this game. Im here since the release of beta version, and it is really amazing to see all the changes. This update made my week!

    (I’ve noticied a bug: Im able to ask a pay rise how many times I want, and… Im already with more than 50% pay rise accumulated :v)

    Btw, love you, guys! Please, im begging: keep the great work!
    Greetings from Brazil <3

    Oh, the infinite pay rise bug work like that: I get a job, open the job window, ask for a pay rise, change to another page and then comeback to the job window, and therefore Im able to ask another pay rise (at the same age, at the same year).

    Add a military option, one where you can rise up the ranks all the way up to general.

  • Pratososos

    Please add the decision to commit a crime

  • Anonamous

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    guys your game is sooooo awesome!

    Living on through your kids would be best though! like an option to play your child also to have annoucements like your child got married, divorced or you have grandchildren. I loved seeing what hapoened to my kids after i died. And other social stuff like going on dates with your partner to boost relationship.

    You should also have ways to argue with your kids and parents. Eg: if they/you take drugs etc… like you can displine, leave or negotiate (sometimes work)

    I loooovvveee this game!!! Its my wind down!!! Thank you!!

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    I’ve been checking the Play Store every day… Finally! ❤ I really like this game. A suggestion I would like to make (I have many, but one at a time, eh?) is the amount of money you start with being a variable, based on country and class. Also, maybe having a single mum, and maybe parents could have a job before you’re born? School trips and motorbikes, too…

    So much for one at a time, eh 😅

    Keep up the great work!

    You should add the option to get your tubes tied/a vasectomy. And a fertility rate. Where you could be born unfertile or extremely fertile, along with your partner having one too.

  • Alexandra

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Could you please add siblings and more interactions with children? I think it’d be interesting to see how everything played out depending on your relationship with your child. I also think it;d be cool to have an option to live as one of your kids when you die. I’m super excited for the following updates!

  • Matthew

    Thanks for the awesome game!!
    It would be dope to be able to have more actions with your children such as private schools or positive relationships, grandchildren etc.
    Also I think it would be cool to have more options for spouse such as intercourse or arguments.

  • Sherifa Sore

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    The game is incredible and all but u should add careers like acting,modeling,investing in the stock market for a living or family business etc.. and add family trees and a percentage of what your DNA Is like for example your Japanese and there’s a percentage of your heritage like 2% African or 8%White

  • Kat Dillabough

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Please add more family stuff like grandkids, options to visit your parents, kids dating, more chance of kids moving out. Being able to live your kids life after you die, more relationship drama, more kid drama. You know the drill. LOVE THIS GAME

    Fun game.

    Can you add to prison the ability to actuall become a crime boss like be able to run a criminal orginization inside and continue once your released.

    Throw some real life prison senerios in there as well.

    Also need the ability to be more aggressive in the work place like being able to go after the ceo job by activly doing things in the work place to get it

    And same goes for promotions
    Make a choice work late sleep with your boss whatever they both carry pro and con.

    Also add military ,police ,firefighterservice as an option

  • Bobske

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Thank you for this update! Could you also please add more careers like, teacher, actress, policeman, firefighter.

    It would be really fun if you could see if your child got married and has children as well. Or if it would be possible to influence your children more.

    It would also be really fun, if you have the ability to buy a piece of land, and become, King, duke, etc. etc.

    Have loved the game since I got it a couple of months ago, especially how you guys update and listen to comments.
    The save system is a little buggy (like you expected), and sometimes doesn’t let me advance in years after loading
    I know you guys will fix it

    Thanks

    I would like to see my partner stats increase or decrease with mine and having an affair should not necessarily break us up, let me choose a decision. Also, I would like to see more options for happiness.

    It could be inyeresting to see your level of relationship with your kids like you can do with your partner, and to be able to like play catch or see movie and stuff with them in order to like have a good realtionship with them. Also it could be nice to be ablr to reconnect eith kids after you abandon them.

  • Anon.

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    It may be interesting to have, in the Careers tab, the option to become a drug dealer or burglar or something that becones available if you drop out of school or do not get high enough grades in school to get into college. That way you could get arrested for more than just assault etc.

  • Anon.

    Maybe there should be an option to have night classes in the education/qualifications tab so that if you dont have good enough grades to go to college you have to pay a fee to attend night classes to get the degrees

  • Anon.

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Maybe you could go on dates with your partner to increase relationship level. Like, the menu you get for planning a holiday or wedding you could have for thr dates and certain ones increase relationship more than others like, going on a romantic picnic is 10% but a horror movie is -5%? It could vary depending on the person

  • Anon.

    May 13, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Maybe you could join a gang so that if u go into prison you could have protection and you can make yout way up the ranks and run a criminal empire in and out of prison.
