Haarlem, The Netherlands -22 November 2012 – Independent games publisher Iceberg Interactive today released its first project on Steam Greenlight: its tropical paradise simulation game ‘ The Good Life’ , developed by immersionFX.

Players interested in The Good Life are invited to learn more about the game on the following Steam Greenlight page: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=106975811

If accepted by Steam, players can a.o. look forward to an additional unique ship for Steam users and integration of Steam Achievements.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “The Good Life was designed to radiate a vibe of positivity, with gameplay mimicking a laid back lifestyle in a tropical paradise. The perks of such a luxurious life do not come without a little work, but if you have to work for your money, sailing tropical waters or diving for treasure easily beats an office job now doesn’t it.”

What is Steam Greenlight?

Steam Greenlight is a system that enlists the community’s help in picking some of the new games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and video for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution. Steam Greenlight also helps developers get feedback from potential customers and start creating an active community around their game during the development process.

About The Good Life

The Good Life is a free roaming simulation set in a visually stunning 3D tropical environment. Play an intriguing combination of gameplay styles; part ship simulation, part time-management, part tycoon and 100% fun. A villa ashore, your own yacht, a stunning sunset, sandy beaches and see-through waters. Live the life you always dreamed of on your way to becoming the area’s top dog.
