Does anyone know of any Sims style games?

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi guys. I was wondering if anybody knew of a sin style game. I am looking for a game where you can basically just live, create places, take care of things, you can choose from a large variety of things to do. Does anyone know of these kind of games?

Try out my baby sim. I haven't tried the app but I know you have to take care of a baby.

Solara is a game that lets you create your own castle and build shops and such. It is completely accessible with VoiceOver and quite addictive!

Hatchi is a retro virtual pet game.

Thanks i love virtual care games and am always looking for more. Is there a game like solara where you can customize and control the characters

I have yet to find an accessible game that gives you full control of the characters. Solara lets you send your characters on quests and things like that, but the battles are automated and you don't have any real control. I would like a character building game, but there just doesn't seem to be an accessible version.

That is really sad. I always hear sighted people talking about the sims and how fun it is, it would just be cool if we could join in the fun too.

I agree completely! My sighted friends are always talking about the newest world building or farming game that they're playing, but Solara is the closest I've found. I've thought about emailing some of the game developers to see if they have any plans for making their games accessible, but wasn't really sure how to go about asking them.

Maybe they just don't know that we want them make them accessible. Maybe we should just tell them about us, and how we want them to make their app accessible, and see what they say.

I'm sure that most of them don't know about us, or maybe they just don't know how to make their apps accessible. I am going to see if I can find email addresses for some of the app developers, and let them know that we're interested.

I said on another thread that everyone on this website who wants a simulation game has different interests. Taking this into consideration, what type of game would we try to make accessible? I do agree that developers should make their apps accessible most of the time, but I think we should make a sensible decision as to which simulation game/genre we want to work with.

It should be like the sims. That way, everyone can have some fun, since there is a variety of things to do. Also, that style of games is very popular, so it would help us interact more with our cited friends. Maybe someone should email the developer of that Game.

I agree that we should focus on one specific game. I think the Sims is a good choice as well because of the popularity and wide variety of things that you can do with it. If we contact the developer of a more popular game, then maybe it will get the word out to more people. Also, maybe we should each email the developer instead of choosing one person to contact them? That way it will let them know that there are a lot of us interested.

Here is the app store link to the sims. There is a link to the developer website close to the bottom, but I couldn't find an email address for them.

If you really want to get lost in a long sim, try a Windows game called Survive The Wild. It's quite remarkable, especially since it was programmed by a thirteen year old kid!

I was looking for this on the Internet, but I could not find it. I realise that this is a little far from the actual discussion topic, but could you please provide a link to get this game?

Hi guys! I found a life simulation game! It has recently been added to the iOS app directory. It is called Alter Ego. It is not exactly like the Sims, but it is a lot of fun and I really enjoy it.
