Strategy First and Monte Cristo are pleased to announce that The Partners, a life simulation game that takes place in a law firm, has shipped to retail stores nation wide. If i am not mistaken The Partners is already available in Europe...

“This game is a mixture of your favorite soap opera and The Sims,” says Steve Milburn, Marketing Director at Strategy First. “It’s got all the drama of a TV show and the amazing gameplay of the famous PC game.”

The Partners is a life simulation game that puts players in a fast-moving law office where the daily ups and downs are anything but mundane. The water cooler talk is surrounded by deep, passionate love affairs, hateful rivalries and intense jealousy and you write the script. Relationships can be professional or tawdry, friendly or vengeful and the characters can range from sports loving playboys to cultured career men. Now all this and the fate of the firm are in your hands! Take control of the various characters and watch the stories unravel before your eyes – with no commercials!

Infogrames will distribute The Partners exclusively in North America. For more information please visit
