InstLife 1.0

Release 😱

Release

It’s time, the full InstLife Android release!

It’s been a journey and it’s definitely not the end. The only change will be that updates will now be every two weeks rather than weekly. This is to dedicate an extra week of development time to ensure we can add more content rich updates.

Please give us an honest rating on the Google Play Store – this will mean so much, you can rate us here:

Get it on Google Play

If you’re also feeling generous, a rating on itch.io will also help us a lot!

LGBT

As it’s #LGBTHistoryMonth, we wanted to ensure InstLife is raising awareness and increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in video games.

With the new addition today we feel we are on our way of creating an inclusive game, we hope our approach is not insensitive.

The transition option is only enabled if your character is diagnosed with gender dysphoria.

    Acurrate and fantastic way to implement it.

    Thanks for all your hard work, Dev. Good luck and congrats!

    I’m fine that you can only transition under certain conditions, but I have an issue. It happens far too infrequently.

    I’ve done about 10 lives now looking for it and I never found it. Since this is supposed to be inclusive, could it be made more common?

    I’m so very excited by the official release! Congratulations, you’ve worked hard!

    Just a couple of suggestions that I’d love to see… Since you’re particularly focused on inclusiveness, it would be fantastic to see “asexual” option in the sexual orientation pop up box, with the option of adopting as a single parent.

    I’d also love housing updates… Renting a home or building a home to your own specifications.

    Keep up the fantastic work!

    for #LGBTHistoryMonth can you make events of meeting the same-sex couple,Parents’ refusal to be homosexual or bisexual,the refusal of parents in choosing a partner of the same sex as you,the ban on marriage and the adoption of a child by same-sex partners in some countries, or prisons in those countries where homosexuality is not allowed.possibility of surgery to become a transsexual,become asexsualthat they can beat you because of your sexual orientation and, of course, the pride parade event

    p.s I hate months of LGTB AND BLACK, because it’s just a liberal propaganda

    I think there should be a “question gender” button. You get to choose sexual orientation, why not gender? And you can change that at any time. Have transitioning cost, but give the option. It would also be nice to see a choice for agender and asexual. Pleaaaaase ;; Thank you for the awesome work! Look forward to playing more!

  • A disappointed trans man

    February 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    I got so excited when I found out there was a transition option, but I am disappointed that it is so difficult to use since you have to have the random event of diagnosed with gender dysphoria first. You can choose your sexuality, why can’t you choose to transition? I also have noticed a trend that the dysphoria event shows up when you are playing as a male but not as a female(At least I’ve never gotten the event while playing a female character) which I find disappointing as well. I hope to see an update soon with improvements to this function.

    hi here is an ideai to your game, you should add more languages to game lime portuguese, french, spanish etc
    this will increase your games quality a lot
    other idea is to add armys then you can be a soldier of your country and fight in a war, of course adding ranks in this profession
    and my last idea is you to add political carrer then you can be a senator, mayor, president etc, and add options that gou can be corrupt or not, this will do the game very interesting.
    thats it I love your game bye

    It would be cool in certain regions, you could be born into a poor family and live in poor conditions and not be allowed to go to school and have to start working at a young age. Give specific jobs like “Rob homes/stores”, “beg for money” or “scavenge for money” and eventually “prostitute for money” with the ability of getting pregnant. And depending on what country you live in, you can get an abortion. And if not, we could abandon the baby, which was given to us in the new update!

    Also, in certain countries, abortions should be illegal and you would have to face the consequences for getting one. An option should be “getting abortions in *said country* is illegal. Would you like to travel to *another said country* where it is legal to get one?”

    I absolutely love this game. Keep up the great work.

    If we abandon our child, they should still appear in the child dashboard but have a category that says “Abandoned” under their details. Also, I would like to be able to abandon children at a younger age. Like when they are 1st Born, the option should be available.

  • Anonymous

    February 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    Since we can make custom lives, the transition button seems more like a political thing then something we need. Also it would make since for gender dsyphoria to be disabled in custom lives since you chose Your gender to begain with.

    Also I would caution the devs not to open the Pandora’s box of gender.Stick to the two primary ones. (If you need an example of what it mean search for Gender alchemist in the play store. It’s crazy.)

  • Ideas 101

    February 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    Love the new release! Thank you so much for making my day a little better! But I wanted to throw out some ideas. #1: Siblings and pets: I have these in real life and kinda want them in my virtual life too :3. #2: maybe add more to the intelligence thing.Instead of just being how smart you are maybe also show what your smart for. Like math, history, science, etc. #: Get laid option. When your dating you can only make a baby… Why not just get laid? Also maybe a date button in there would be good. To build up the relationship status. And #4: Maybe add in the ability to find love over your social media and have some other events with that?

    Why did you add a mental illness before grandkids? You know that “trans” people are a ridiculously small minority of people who have a crippling mental illness as opposed to grandkids. Please stop glorifying mental illnesses and stop shoving trans bullshit down our throats. Very very very disappointed that you chose to focus on shoving your political agenda down our throats rather than making a good game. You’d rather be “inclusive” then make a good game. Why in the hell did a mental illness get added in before grandkids? Or siblings for that matter. Stop shoving trans bull down our throats it’s beyond annoying.

    Dear Instcoffe,
    So I have a suggestion for the Artist Career.This idea is that maybe when you become a pretty good and succesful artist,a museum or art gallery could ask to add your painting to their place.It would be like when a company asks to buy copies of your paintings,but they buy it for way more money.Another thing is that this could cause you to become more popular in social media and in an obtuiaty.I hope ypu add this suggestion πŸ™‚
