The Sims 4: Island Living is another big expansion for the extremely popular and unique life simulator The Sims 4 published in 2014. The add-on was developed by Electronic Arts.
The Sims 4: Island Living allows players' Sims to live in the sunny Sulani Island, offering several new buildings, locations, and lots of one-of-a-kind activities. The creators of the game were inspired by the Polynesian culture, which was reflected in the architecture, nature, and culture of this tropical paradise. One's guests will enjoy the benefits of sandy beaches and clean ocean. Sims can not only lazily sunbathe on the shore or make sand castles, but also play with dolphins, fish, swim and dive in the open sea, and race on jet skis. In their free time, they will get to know the local culture and friendly natives by taking part in traditional festivals and barbecues or drinking together a cup of local drink called kava.
When one's Sims run out of money, they can try to earn a living as an angler, lifeguard, and swimming instructor. The authors have also prepared a new career as an ecologist, dealing with the protection of the flora and fauna of Sulani and cleaning beaches and forests of rubbish left by tourists. In addition, new tropical outfits, clothing accessories, and hairstyles await to be explored. With new building materials and furniture, players will create a colourful island villa with direct access to the sea. A big attraction is also the ability to create a mermaid with magical abilities. In the editor players will choose e.g. the shape of its fins and the colour of the scales.
