We got the chance to play the recent hit No Time To Relax, a digital board game where you take a journey through life. Still in early access with a recent fix of version 0.9.7.2. We see how we go in life.
About the Game
“No Time to Relax is a life simulation game where up to 4 players online or locally compete against each other in the ultimate game of life.” – Steam Description
The best way to describe it – is life from teenager kicked out of home, to fend for themselves to set for life. Build yourself from the bottom and work your way to the top.
Start life with $200 dollars in your pocket and a life to lead. Time is finite in a turn on the board. Do you –
- Education – Go to school and get a bigger paying job later in life
- Job Centre – Apply for a job
- Market – Get your groceries in
- Mall/Applicance store – Upgrade yourself and your apartment
- Home – Relax you have done everything
- Much More – Other event areas are available
Make sure you keep your character in good form or your next turns will get a penalty. Forget to eat something – whelp that’s some time gone in your next turn. Less time means less actions – but you still must get everything done.
Game ends once the time limit expires, be it 10,20 or 30 turns. Did you lead a happy, lots of money, healthy and educated life. Those are the 4 stats you are measured on. Do well – win the game.
Its got a lot of way to go. It’s a good game for friends, but it needs more to it. At its price point currently, we would pick it up. It’s a good game to have a versus mode and basically challenge friends to see who can run a life better. However after been playing for a few hours – it felt like we had done everything.
Worth the money – but needs more. Hope people pick it up to bring some sort of DLC – extra maps to the game. Bring this game to a whole new level.
3/5 – A Good start but needs a bit more time in the game making oven.
