    I heard Disney was throwing a decent amount of money at games lately. I am pretty curious as to what will come out. If anyone has the wallet to make a good game, they do.

    Kind of gives me Epic Mickey vibes with the backstory. Interested in seeing where this goes.

    Oh no. Apparently it is a free to play live service. (Kind of odd since it is listed as single player on Steam.) My interest has unfortunately shriveled.

    Hard pass. Even my inner child is too old for this.
    Check out my 'Simming Tips' for detailed tips and tricks (TS4).

    It looks really fun to me. As for too old I still play with my Barbies, paper dolls, and coloring books. 😄

    I want to love it, but free to play live service always scares me. Disney isn't exactly above money grubbing. I guess if anyone has the wallet to bankroll a good one, they do though.

    Disney is courting our Sims 4 creators. Might be something to that rumored merger after all. 🤔

    Here is a new preview from IGN:



    The game is looking quite promising.

    This looks like it could potentially be a lot fun from the preview. The official site claims that it will be available on September 6, 2022, which isn't too far off. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this game.

    Sorry ahead of time if this has been covered somewhere else, but what exactly is a "free to play live service"? Since I'm not a huge video game person the term is confusing to me. Is it similar to an MMO? My brother told me that MMOs are bad news and it's best to stay away from them.

    Games that are free to play doesn't cost anything like most games do but instead they tend to have microtransactions in the game that you pay for. They are often designed so doing things in the game takes a while and if you want want to speed things up or if you want a particular item then you have to pay money. Live Service means that the game will get content over time and will also add more things in order to get people to potentially spend money.

    Free to play games are not necessarily bad, but they tend to get a bad reputation because of how they can be designed so you have to spend money in order to progress in the game without having to play and do repetitive tasks for a long time in order to unlock something or "grind" as they call it.

    MMO or MMORPG stands for Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game where loads of players are playing in a world and they can either cost money or be free to play, MMO's are often also notorius for making players "grind" in order to progress.

    From what I have seen from the preview video of Disney Dreamlight Valley it seems to be mostly clothes that can cost money and the progression in the game seems fair, but it's difficult to tell from just a preview.

    Thanks for clarifying that for me, I really appreciate your detailed explanation.

    That sounds like a pretty big drawback if you have to do repetitive tasks for a long time or spend money to unlock things. My brother mentioned those were two things in the MMO game he played that took the fun out of it. He also said that the game was far too competitive and that it would go offline on a regular basis. So I probably wouldn't be interested if any of those scenarios were the case with Dreamlight Valley. Regardless, I'll be interested to hear how it turns out and will have to evaluate it further at that point.

    I will give this game a shot, so I will be looking at the early access release.
    It does remind me of their Disney Magical World game in a way, which gives your character a farm, a cafe, and outfits to unlock and wear. Also, DMW kind lets you go to other worlds, and attack ghosts, and you interact with the characters. It is like a kid-friendly Kingdom hearts with less lore.
    This game reminds me of DMW and KH, but with a Sims twist. Even if it is "free to play" I still want to give it a shot.

    Me too! I'm glad I'm not the only one. 🤗

    This looks so cool. I'm definitely up for it, looks my kind of thing. Disney is awesome no matter what they do. 😊

    I’d definitely like to check this out. I’m not one for games that put strict time limits on tasks, but if it’s not too demanding, it could be fun.
