    House Flipper is one of those titles that you just don't expect to be as good as it is. Seriously, play this videogame.

    It seems a little silly to gush about a video game that simulates housework but given the added amount of stress and anxiety that has crept into my life lately, House Flipper is a wonderful way to shut out the noise of the world for a little bit.

    This house-renovating simulator provides a satisfying sense of progression and realism. Its focus veers away from architectural and interior design, letting handiwork steal the spotlight.

    It is a niche title, but it can be a very fun game if you don't mind spending hours remaking houses and decorating them to your heart's content.

    House Flipper manages to scratch a specific itch, but it lacks long-term incentives and just generally feels like a missed opportunity. With more content, polish, interactivity, and customization, this could become a nice sleeper hit. It's serviceable as is, but it won't hold your attention for too long.

    House Flipper seems like a killer idea for a sim game, and while your first few sales deliver some of the before-and-after magic, the game fails to capture the larger remodeling fantasy. Empyrean has been delivering a steady stream of updates and improvements to House Flipper, but it’ll take a lot more elbow grease to get this fixer-upper ready for market.

    House flipper is a game where you flip houses.
    You start of with a little bit of money, and you earn money by doing chores. With the money earned, you can buy houses, which you fix up and decorate, and then sell (or keep as a new office). The game itself is unique, and has a fun gameplay loop. There is not much of a grind, and the game keeps feeling fresh.

    For those who are scared of roaches or spiders, do not worry! There is an option in game which allows you to change those pests into pieces of glass. Parents BEWARE. The game contains one house which has jumpscares and is ABSOLUTELY NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN IN ANY WAY!
    The game does not give you an option to turn it off, nor does it warn you.
    A lot of the assets this game uses are "free" or bought assets from the unity and the unreal engine stores. This makes it feel a bit cheap. The game overall is a solid 7.5/10. It's a lot of fun and a solid game.

    The biggest problem is that there needs to be more. More available houses, more handyman assignments, more buy-able assets. The simplest ofThe biggest problem is that there needs to be more. More available houses, more handyman assignments, more buy-able assets. The simplest of landscaping features would be helpful as well. Another gripe is buyers wanting me to supply their bunker and buy food or turn down a house because it lacks a TV. Buy it yourself! Expand

    A good start - there is certainly potential here.
    However, given that the game is lacking a lot of what I would deem essentials for this kind of game (a much greater selection of furniture, paint, tiles, etc.; gardening; the ability to expand the house; an actually working buyer AI; mid- and long-term goals and a better sense of progression; and, perhaps most importantly, moddability), yet is presented as a full release, I am scoring it based on what is there and what isn't, as any game the developers deem fit for a full release should.

    Given enough time and effort, this may become one of the most zen games on the market and a classic - I mean, let's be honest, the game already kinda captures what is by and large the best thing about the Sims games (I mean besides dropping them in a pool with no ladder or walling in the pesky neighbor).
    But some of the necessary changes might require some pretty extensive changes to the code; enabling moddability in a way that makes it easily accessible alone can be quite daunting.

    Maybe it helps that large portions of the game, particularly the interfaces and menus, look very WIP, so the developers still have tons of work ahead of them, if they want to make this game more than a half-polished Alpha, and it shouldn't be too much of a stretch for them to give some core systems a complete overhaul

    Let's hope, then, that they are in this for the long haul.

    I have no idea how you can rate this 10, it is stale, for the first 30 min at least (this was when I have up) you just collecting trash. yeaI have no idea how you can rate this 10, it is stale, for the first 30 min at least (this was when I have up) you just collecting trash. yea it sounds great to renovate houses and sell them, and being creative is usually fun, but not here, at all. it is full of bugs, it is weird. the aesthetic is confusing, for the most you have this nice colourfull texture, but at some times, some realistic just jumps out of the blue. YOU SHOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS GAME. Expand
