DC Life: Story Mode Edition contains story game mode which allows you to play full story for both the female and male character in addition to sandbox mode which is available in the free version.

Her Story (38,000 Words)

If you choose to play the female character, you've arrived at Dream City with the objective to find your missing father. How you are going to achieve this is up to you. Choose wisely as your decision has serious ramification throughout the game. Get a job, find a home and explore the city.

As you meet many characters in the game, you'll be given the chance to investigate the mystery behind murders, discover conspiracies and prove yourself to join a vigilante group. Can you survive in the city while trying to unravel the mystery of your father's disappearance?

His Story (38,000 Words)

If you choose to play the male character, you wake up not remembering anything about yourself. You have to figure out why you came to Dream City in the first place. You start with nothing and it's up to you to survive in a city troubled by gang fights and harsh economic condition. You'll be forced to scavenge, looking for odd jobs and carrying out dangerous quests just to earn money to buy food and find shelter to sleep.

Difference Between DC Life and DC Living

Both DC Life and DC Living share the same game world. DC Life is a text-based game which allows you to control the main character through plenty of screens. DC Living on the other hand plays like 2D role playing game which allows you to control the main character that you see from the top down view. Both games have lots of interaction. If you have no idea what to do in the game, you can refer to the extensive checklist that keeps track of your progress in the game. There are a lot of tutorials that explain what you need to do in the game.

Is This Life Simulation Game?

The short answer is no. You're only controlling the main character from certain age. Although the game has certain life simulation features such as taking care of hunger, sleep and other needs, the game plays like a normal role playing game.

Hello again! Just wondering who can be my baby daddy (living partner) in the game?

(+1)

Hi, living partner is only available in sandbox mode. Right now, if you're playing the female character in sandbox mode, you can have Patrick as your living partner. Do task for him (just visit him at the city park after midnight) & there will be chance for him to ask for a date. Later, he might propose during the date. You'll engaged to him and you'll get married to him after the apocalypse is over (after March 2009).

Once you get engaged to him, you can visit his home & do many activities as if you're at your own home. However, we haven't yet implemented this visiting part on current update. Upcoming update next year should be able to address this issue. If you're playing male character, the living partner is Cecilia (theatre) but we haven't implemented dating part yet. This will also be addressed in upcoming update.

Okay thank you so much!

I love the game! I was jut wondering how do I customize my home? I cannot seem to find the button.

Hi, for the latest version 1.570, there should be Customise Home button in main menu screen (the screen that you see when you start or pause the game). Click the button to go to Customise Home screen. You'll unlock furniture by spending on gem which you can get just by playing the game. Once you've unlocked furniture, there should be home button to put the furniture at your home.

Single bed and bath tub are already unlocked when you start the game. All you need to do is just click home button on both bed and bath tub to put it at your home.

Oh I found it. Thank you! Also, now I'm stuck on the find norman in the sewers quest. It just stops searching after a while and the game freezes. 

Ok, are you playing Windows or Android version? We've never encountered any freeze during ghost/spy mini game. If character is hungry or tired while in the mini game, they will automatically stop the mini game. Maybe this is the cause of freeze. We'll investigate the issue.

I'm using Windows and no, my character is not hungry or tired. Oh I figured it out. Just go in and out of the sewer until I find Norman. It's somewhat working.

OK, we're glad it's working. When doing ghost mini game, character has scare statistic. If it's zero, she will simply stop doing it. Exiting the sewer and reenter it again seems to reset the scare statistic.

Hi, we managed to recreate the freeze bug. We'll patch the Windows version today. Keep an eye for the update (version 1.580).

Thank you! :)
