House Flipper 2 looks like a big step up
You’ll have the ability to construct houses from scratch within the sequel
For as many granular simulation video games as we get today, it’s not that frequent to see a full-on numbered sequel. But 2018’s House Flipper broke by with three million copies offered throughout PC and consoles, and that was sufficient for House Flipper 2 to get the inexperienced gentle. Here’s our first have a look at gameplay, together with a noticeably much less “basic” artwork fashion.
I preferred the unique game for what it was, although I ended up craving a extra full expertise with a greater scope. Cleaning up nasty houses and renovating them is a idea that just about sells itself within the simulation area, so I’m glad to see the builders at Frozen District attempt once more, presumably with extra runway this time.
The big change: on high of the returning Story mode, there’s going to be a Sandbox mode in which you’ll be able to “build homes from scratch” slightly than simply shore up present ones.
“We’ve put a lot of heart and story into House Flipper 2, polishing our trusty tools, focusing on player creativity, and adding mysteries to uncover,” stated lead producer Jakub Bujas in a press assertion. “We think returning fans and brand new players alike will enjoy relaxing, creating, and exploring the community of Pinnacove.”
With the widespread heat reception to PowerWash Simulator just lately, I really feel like extra persons are giving these kinds of video games a probability. And as a lot as some publishers take a shotgun method to determining the following big sim material (with loads of duds within the course of), amongst these video games that do resonate, the standard bar appears to be rising.
If I’m being sincere, I’d play a easy “home-cleaning simulator” — it’s oddly enjoyable! — however having a well-rounded renovation and home-building loop will go a great distance.
House Flipper 2 is coming to Steam someday in 2023, and PlayStation and Xbox variations are additionally deliberate.
