Q1: WHAT IS TOMODACHI LIFE?
I can let the above video speak for itself, but I’ll sum it up like so:
You own a fancy little island somewhere in the middle of the ocean. You move your Miis in. You assign them a name, a personality, and a voice. You give them food, clothes, living space, and other necessities. They hang out, play games, get into fights, fall in love, marry, make babies, break up, cheat, get into rap battles, throw frisbies, travel the world, explore a dungeon RPG-style, and have bizarre dreams involving dancing around a Virtual Boy.
This is one of those weird life sim games. It’s like Animal Crossing and The Sims trying to raise a Tamagotchi while on less than legal substances. The fun of the game isn’t playing the game, but rather watching how the Miis interact with each other.
The game came out last year in June, and I will say, it’s not for everyone. Give the video above a watch. If you scratch your head and wonder what the point is supposed to be, the game is probably not for you. If you watch and get a good laugh, and imagine the sorts of Miis you could add and the adventures you could have, I recommend giving it a shot.
