Vile Monarch‘s life simulation game Growing Up is raised in DRM-free land on GOG.
Growing Up certainly wears its The Sims influences on its sleeve, although there’s much more focus on the RPG mechanics and individual life stories presented in a visual novel style than in the classic series. One starts with a character’s childhood and develops it until the possible parenthood or career path.
Learning skills as well as trying to find a balance between school work and friendships or free-time activities is important, and so is exploring a 90ies-style city with all its scenes and sights to indulge in. With 19 characters to choose from, over 200 skills to master and 42 careers to be involved in, there’s certainly enough replay value.
Growing Up was originally released in October 2021 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 10% launch discount that lasts until January 20, 2022, at 2 PM UTC.
