Longing for, or back to, that permanent sunny weather and that luxurious resort? Considering retiring early and moving to a tropical paradise? In The Good Life you get all that - and more.

The Good Life’ is a hybrid game that combines ship simulation, time management and tycoon elements, set on a fictitious tropical island complex with luxurious hotels, villas, bars or even ancient tourist attractions - just about everything you’d expect to see in a luxury vacation destination. In ‘The Good Life’, life is good, very good.

Play a game of a life you can't live and a place you can't go !

Iceberg CEO Erik Schreuder says: “The Good Life is an intriguing mixture of genres -  which will appeal to gamers of all ages. This game just brings you in the mood for sunshine. Cruising around on your yacht, diving for treasure and buying property is what most people fancy doing when they strike gold. And I am sure everyone has already forgotten their summer holidays by now - this is a chance to recapture that mood in a heartbeat.”

Manolis Tsotros of immersionFX says: “I have been a big fan of Monopoly since I was a kid, but my problem was that, no matter how much paper money I earned, I never got the sense of the wealth and lifestyle that goes with winning the game. So, in making The Good Life, that was sort of our goal at heart, to go from rags to riches, and live that luxurious lifestyle on a tropical paradise. For added depth, we included some fun and rewarding missions and adventures and now we have a huge ‘sandbox’ game, where the fun never ends.”
