InstLife 1.2.0

Phew! That was a big one… Enjoy siblings and creating your own businesses.

Rollout Times

If you do not receive your update straightaway, do not panic! Rollouts can take some time to reach you all.

Siblings

We have added siblings! They can be accessed via the family menu, however direct interactions are lacking at the moment, but we will be updating this shortly.

Oh, also… An older sibling can defend you from bullies!

Create Your Own Business

We have added the new Business Owner career. You simply need to be 18 years old (or older) to access this career.

You can set up multiple companies, as long as you have money to use as an initial investment. You have the ability to create one product per year per company; name your product, set a price, set quantity. The price of your product multiplied by the quantity will equal the cost to your business to produce.

If your company is lacking funds, you can choose to search for investors to fill up your bank account. The chance of getting investment could depends on certain criteria.

You can also withdraw dividends each (10% of company value) each year, or sell your company should you wish to do so. When selling your company the game keeps it in memory and you have the ability to find a job at the company you created!

There are also a handful of random events which can occur.

    Finally you added siblings all you need to do is to add a family tree to the game and I will be happy

    You guys are absolutely amazing!! A lot of hard work has been put into this game, and let me say: Android version of Bitlife ain’t got shit on Instlife. I know it’s not a straight competition, but you guys are in the lead!

  • Eva

    March 24, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    Yeah i agree with the person above me! I just want family trees, nieces and nephews, personal nationality pie chart (so 1/4 Finnish, 1/2 Spanish etc.) and being born into royalty (or doing it yourself in custom lives. And also can you (when you finish up the political career) let us be born into a political family?

    You guys are miraculous! There seems to be a problem where if you opened the partner page and then leave it there to keep aging until they divorce you or die. When you go to the relationship button, there will only be a “you don’t have a partner” there is no other option and you can’t get out of it unless you get another partner in the club or in online dating. But you guys are doing great!

    Love the game. However, with the newest update I think I found a bug. My children never declare their sexuality, so I can’t force them to have a partner and have grandchildren. My one child is in his 30’s and still hasn’t decided.

  • GQ

    March 24, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    This is the best. Thank you. There are still many bugs but the contents are enough to play it again & again.

    I just hope that you have auto-save feature so my game wont be lost when I have to leave the game for awhile (background running)

    Also, please polish the game for now.. the siblings, the business owner career (like when in telecom business instead of creating a yearly product, you will have an income because of your customers [more like subscribers] instead of not having any income when you dont release a product.), generation mode, pets, children, grandchildren and so on..

    The game contents are enough for now, please stop adding new for awhile and focus on polishing the existing contents.

    Imho, that’s where bitlife is good at. Polished contents before releasing it to users. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a longtime InstLife fan (and TextLife way back) and I want it to be the No.1 Android life sim game again. Please, the game would be soooo much better if you minimize the bugs

    Thank you so much for your hard work despite InstLife being a free game. Please add options like premium so those who can buy can support you guys.

    Why isn’t the app showing up on the app store!?

  • Destinee

    March 24, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    Hi, I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but I deleted the app and attempted to install it again to see if the update would come on that way since its taking a VERY long time. But when I went back into play store, it wasn’t there anymore! I tried to google instlife to see if I can download it there, but it sent me to the play store. It came up with a message saying ‘Item Not Found’. I’m not really good with technology so I’m wondering if anyone knows what to do? I’m desperate πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯

  • Destinee

    March 24, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    Okay – I’ve downloaded the APK and now have the latest update. Although its still not showing up in the play store, at least its back on my phone.
    I would still like to know why its not showing in play store though.

  • Heavyachingfeet

    March 24, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    While i completely respect GQ’s opinion, i personally prefer focus on content. After all the fun of the game lies in the diversity of the lives you live and the little quirks that they end up having.

    Thanks for the APK download! Lots of fun so far

    although, i would ask for some fixes in the are of child adoption. To elaborate, when you adopt several kids and continue as one of them in generation mode, the adopted siblings do not show up in generation mode. That’s quite sad. Also allow your children in non-generation mode to adopt children. That way you can still get grandkids from your gay children. And straight children would also be nice if they occasionally decided to adopt a child πŸ™‚

    I love this! But uh…Can you make pet lifespans more realistic? African Greys live 40-60 years, and Cockatoos, depending on the species, generally live 50-70 years as well. Parrots are very long-lived birds!
