Haarlem, The Netherlands – 30 November 2012 – Greek game developer immersionFX announces to have released a free update for the PC/Mac retail versions of its tropical paradise simulation game The Good Life . The update includes increased population in the sea,  more NPC boat routes and an auto-update feature.  A German update has also been made available by immersionFX.

Update notes from immersionFX:

•    Auto-Update feature: when in menu scene, the game notifies you if a newer version of TGL is available and you have the options to either go online and get it (game must restart), or to skip it until next visit or to skip it entirely.

•    More NPC boat routes in every corner of the game world.

•    We made the throttle less responsive to forward/backward (after a suggestion by one of our customers), something which makes boat speed easier to control while docking at ports.

•    Increased population in the sea.

Please note: Due to the impact of the update it is necessary to restart the game, all progress so far will not be saved.
