We've reached peak... something. It's hard to tell in this day and age, what with everything moving so fast and making little-to-no-sense. I mean what I used to call lads is now called eshays and apparently it's a very popular fashion and lifestyle, which is weird because I used to (and still do) do everything in my power to avoid them. What a time to be alive.
Where were we? Oh right, peak... something. Here's a new sim about fixing up dilapidated sports facilities.
Give sports facilities a second life in this relaxing first-person simulator! Restore the glory of old gyms, courts and pitches as you try to make enough money to save your hometown basketball court.It's not absurd to consider the many, many ways in which the sim gaming world can forever surprise us, but for mine I feel this one is pretty unique. And with continued press release items like:
Your hometown basketball court is in danger. The shining star of your youth where you watched fantastic matches played by your favourite team. It’s a place where many young talents started their careers. It’s a home of many fond memories, now covered in cobwebs and dust.this one feels hard to just chalk up as "oh those whacky sim cats are at it again". The irony of the 'pull' here is that Sports: Renovations is also being billed as a "relaxing renovator sim", but I couldn't think of anything less relaxing than having to turn around a failed or failing business to thwart evil corporations from buying it up and presumably making a parking lot (I've seen a lot of 80s movies).
That this is real and that these games keep one-upping in this way really does blow my mind, but hey, it seems to work for a lot of people.
Here's more of what you can expect from Sports: Renovations:
