A potential competitor to The Sims, Paradox Interactive is closing up shop on this one before even giving it a chance. I hadn't heard much about it before this announcement.

Life by You, Paradox Interactive’s in-development competitor to The Sims, has been canceled, the company announced on Monday.

The game, which was first revealed in 2023, sounded impressive: it was designed to allow for the entire town to be simulated in real-time and have no loading screens. However, based on a forum post by Paradox’s deputy CEO Mattias Lilja, the game had some issues that may not have been easily fixable even with additional time for development.

It seems to have hit Paradox Interactive hard:

Damn. I was really impressed by the progress they'd made, last time I checked in.

I'm still playing Sims 4 (just started a new gameplay tonight), but I'd like other games in that same vein.
