Top 10 Upcoming Life Simulation Games 2022 and Beyond


The first thing everyone thinks of when the words “life simulation games” come to mind is The Sims. Nowadays, however, we have moved so far away from it that any simulation game can be considered a life simulation with the right mechanics. But wait… if all games include fishing as a feature, does that instantly make it a life simulation? Is Nier Automata also a life simulation? These are the questions that will keep us up at night!

potions license

Release date: September 22, 2022
Gender: Life Sim, Adventure
Platform: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC

A distant town is in desperate need of help, but an incident involving a chemist has rendered much of the surrounding area unlivable. It’s up to you to use your medical knowledge to cure the ailments of the townspeople and gain their trust. Start by diagnosing their symptoms, then gather all the necessary ingredients to prepare the right concoction to treat the patients.

If that’s not enough to convince you, Potion Permit lets you go fishing for any reason and has multiple endings to unlock. It’s a bit more goal-oriented than the average life sim, but at least it doesn’t take years out of your life.

Little witch in the woods

Release date: TBA (Available now in Early Access)
Gender: RPG, Adventure
Platform: Xbox One, PC

Ellie may have a little trouble listening to people (especially with adults) and she always insists on things being done her way…but she’s a good kid who always puts other people’s problems ahead of her own. own worries… which is the case. which is why she gets into trouble so often. It’s not her problem, she just makes it her business to solve other people’s problems.

Well, that’s what it’s like to play the game in Early Access. So far it’s been pretty good even though the game’s story is only about 1/3 of the intended length for the full version. This game still has a lot to do until the game leaves Early Access next year, but as life simulations go, the daily tasks are quite enjoyable.

The garden path

Tentative release date: 2022
Gender: Life Sim, Exploration
Platform: Nintendo Switch, PC

Every garden needs a gardener…just ask good old Samwise about the exciting life of a gardener. The Garden Path is a slice-of-life sim about the joy of gardening and the little pleasures that come with it. Whether you’re fishing, farming, trading, or just hanging out with new friends, a wondrous and melancholy adventure awaits as you stroll The Garden Path. The 2D art is really impressive too.

We’re not sure about the game time based on your computer’s internal time, but we’re willing to give it a shot.

Bear and breakfast

Release date: July 28, 2022
Gender: Life Sim, RPG
Platform: Nintendo Switch, PC

A bear running a bed and breakfast isn’t the weirdest thing about this game. It turns out there’s a mystery here, and it’s only by expanding the business that the secrets will be uncovered. We don’t know all that, it’s just a lot of fun fumbling around until the place is perfect. When we’re done making sure everything is okay, we’ll sit down and enjoy a bit of fishing and a picnic basket. At least that’s what we think is a perfect day in the life of a BnB manager.

The Brewery Barons

Tentative release date: Q3 or Q4 2022
Gender: Open World, RPG, Simulation
Platform: pc

One of the most curious games on our list, The Brew Barons is an Open World Business Sim that focuses on this liquid gold. In this game, the player takes control of a pair of pilots as they collect, craft, and sell a wide variety of alcoholic beverages. Chat with local businesses to gain access to more recipes, keep an eye out for sunken shipwrecks for treasure, and another eye glued to the horizon for any pirates interested in taking your wares. Don’t forget to upgrade and customize your plane to suit your playstyle, whether it’s a type for dogfights or one suitable for losing a tail.

Tentative release date: Fall 2022
Gender: Adventure, Simulation
Platform: Xbox Series X|S, PC

When the original Slime Rancher came out, it was all about collecting all kinds of slime and feeding them…so you could sell their poop. Well, that hasn’t changed much, but this second game seems to build on what made the first game so special. If nothing else, the slimes look better than ever, and there’s more to the game than just being an everyday slime herder. As life simulations go, you won’t miss this very cool game/series.

Pasha Roots

Build your village from scratch and watch over your people through their life stages. Dig deeper underground and discover another side of your humanity.

Disney Valley of Dreams

Even without this “forgetting” phenomenon sweeping Disney Dream Valley, we know we’d love to spend as much as possible with the Disney and Pixar friends we’ve adored for so many years. Of course, we will do everything we can to help them, if only to see them happy again in their world. (And maybe get a favor from dear old Uncle Scrooge.)

And as the voiceover said, “In this world, you can be whoever you want.” Why not hang out with your Disney friends?
