Haarlem, The Netherlands – 9 October 2012- Videogames publisher Iceberg Interactive and game development studio immersionFX announce that their Tropical Paradise Simulation ‘The Good Life’ for PC/Mac has reached goldmaster status and has entered manufacturing. The release date of The Good Life is now set on Friday the 2nd of November 2012 across Europe and on worldwide digital portals.
To celebrate going gold, 6 brand new screenshots are revealed along with the official pack shot of The Good Life. The screenshots can be downloaded here. 2D and 3D images of the official pack shot can be downloaded here.
Iceberg CEO Erik Schreuder says: “Iceberg CEO Erik Schreuder says: “The Good Life is an intriguing mixture of genres - which will appeal to gamers of all ages. This game just brings you in the mood for sunshine. Cruising around on your yacht, diving for treasure and buying property is what most people fancy doing when they strike gold. And I am sure everyone has already forgotten their summer holidays by now - this is a chance to recapture that mood in a heartbeat.”
Manolis Tsotros of immersionFX says: “I have been a big fan of Monopoly since I was a kid, but my problem was that, no matter how much paper money I earned, I never got the sense of the wealth and lifestyle that goes with winning the game. So, in making The Good Life, that was sort of our goal at heart, to go from rags to riches, and live that luxurious lifestyle on a tropical paradise. For added depth, we included some fun and rewarding missions and adventures and now we have a huge ‘sandbox’ game, where the fun never ends.”
