London Life has launched!

Welcome to London

In London Life, you will be challenged to create gleaming office towers for titans of trade, elite global stock traders and moguls of media.

The London Life content pack features:
  • New offices London Life adds 12 new office tenants. Financiers from small banks to sprawling stock exchanges want to be near the global hub of commerce in the City. Creatives of all types from small recording studios and indie game developers, to bustling newsrooms and lofty movie studios, all are attracted by London’s bright lights and pulsing glamour.
  • New restaurants Traditional pubs and elegant restaurants impart a bit of English charm to your dining and drinking destinations.
  • Lux Lobbies and London skyline In addition to a new, brilliantly British background, luxuriant lobbies with chic chandeliers will allow you to create impressive entryways.
  • Posh artworks Inside and outside, a variety of opulent decorations and posh new artworks, will make your new London premises radiate refinement and prestige.
  • ...and lots more new features to create lofty London Life skyscrapers.

Not ready to head to London just yet? The following changes are now available for everyone:
  • Security doors that prevent people's passage to help control your tower's traffic
  • Revolving doors that slow the spread of smells throughout your skyscrapers
  • Sound doors that negate noise spread in your buildings

Full release notes for version 1.5.11 including the new content pack can be viewed here:

Chinese & Polish, plus Christmas gifts!

Happy Holidays!

We've got a few exciting presents all wrapped up into this one festive announcement!

Let's start with new holiday decorations!
If you've been wanting to make your skyscraper lobbies and entryways more festive with hanging decos, giant two-story Christmas trees and outdoor trees with blinking lights, then you're in luck today! We've added six new holiday decos - check them out in the Seasonal section in decorations.

The game is now fully localized into Simplified Chinese! Thank you for your patience as we worked out some technical issues that had prevented us from sharing the game with Chinese-speaking players. But it's now done and ready for tower construction!

We've also been working on a Polish translation of the game. It's now done and available for skyscraper building.

And from everyone at SomaSim and Kasedo Games, we wish you - the best players on Steam - a very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!

About This Game

Your job as the architect and developer is to build world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city, masterpieces of art and engineering. But a skyscraper is more than just steel and glass, it’s an intricate ecosystem, full of people that live and work in the building. They become a complex machine that needs your steady hand to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.

From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. As the architect you must coordinate the construction of everything - every wall and wire, every office and apartment. As the building owner you must keep your tenants happy - and paying rent on time. As a savvy developer you must keep an eye on the bottom line and invest in the future. Succeed and you will reap the rewards of a prestigious address where everyone will clamor to live and work. Fail and you will watch tenants leave in disgust, taking their business elsewhere and leaving your reputation in tatters.

Will you create an exclusive office highrise that attracts business leaders from around the world? Will you construct luxury apartments in the sky, penthouses for the elite and playgrounds for the famous? Perhaps greed will get the better of you and you’ll build a tenement building that trades tenant happiness for loads of cash? All these choices and more are yours. Success is entirely in your hands.


  • Deep and complex simulation of a modern skyscraper.
  • Huge variety of tenants with their own unique characteristics, from restaurants, to offices, retail stores, or residential apartments.
  • Open sandbox play with several difficulty levels and starting conditions allowing you to build your dream skyscraper towering above the surrounding city.
  • Campaign mode that tests your skill at building a successful highrise in challenging scenarios.
  • Test your management mettle by keeping up with your buildings diverse population and their ever-increasing demands.
  • Hire specialized consultants to increase your building's curb appeal, operational efficiency, and pull with city hall.
