Home Flipper 2 appears to be like like an enormous step up
You’ll be capable to construct houses from scratch within the sequel
For as many granular simulation video games as we get nowadays, it’s not that frequent to see a full-on numbered sequel. However 2018’s Home Flipper broke by with three million copies offered throughout PC and consoles, and that was sufficient for Home Flipper 2 to get the inexperienced mild. Right here’s our first have a look at gameplay, together with a noticeably much less “primary” artwork fashion.
I appreciated the unique recreation for what it was, although I ended up craving a extra full expertise with an even bigger scope. Cleansing up nasty houses and renovating them is an idea that just about sells itself within the simulation area, so I’m pleased to see the builders at Frozen District strive once more, presumably with extra runway this time.
The large change: on high of the returning Story mode, there’s going to be a Sandbox mode in which you’ll be able to “construct houses from scratch” slightly than simply shore up current ones.
“We’ve put a variety of coronary heart and story into Home Flipper 2, sharpening our trusty instruments, specializing in participant creativity, and including mysteries to uncover,” mentioned lead producer Jakub Bujas in a press assertion. “We predict returning followers and model new gamers alike will get pleasure from enjoyable, creating, and exploring the group of Pinnacove.”
With the widespread heat reception to PowerWash Simulator just lately, I really feel like extra persons are giving these kinds of video games an opportunity. And as a lot as some publishers take a shotgun method to determining the subsequent large sim subject material (with loads of duds within the course of), amongst these video games that do resonate, the standard bar appears to be rising.
If I’m being sincere, I’d play a easy “home-cleaning simulator” — it’s oddly enjoyable! — however having a well-rounded renovation and home-building loop will go a great distance.
Home Flipper 2 is coming to Steam someday in 2023, and PlayStation and Xbox variations are additionally deliberate.
