GACHA LIFE | Draw My Life


Gacha Life is a free role-playing and life-simulation
game which allows you to create and customize your own characters, make up stories, and
interact with other users. The game is based on other games such as The
Sims, as well as the “gacha” concept. “Gacha” comes from the Japanese term “gashapon”, which
refers to the typical plastic capsules that contain some sort of surprise gift, which
you can get in vending machines. These usually contain small collectible figurines which
represent popular characters from Japan. In the videogame world, the “gacha model”
refers to a widely used technique in free apps that consists on offering the player
certain payment options, so that he or she can basically purchase the chance of unlocking
new stuff in the game such as items, game modes, characters, etc. This encourages users
to spend money in order to collect all the available characters in the game, as they
would do with gashapons. Gacha Life was published in October 2018 for
iOS and Android devices. The studio responsible for this game is Lunime, composed of a group
of artists who have created other games based on the same concept, which all share a similar
aesthetic and gameplay. Gacha Life soon amassed a big number of followers, and became one
of the most popular titles of this format. By default, the game offers you eight pre-made
characters which you can customize using a huge array of resources: Haircuts, facial
expressions, clothes, poses, and many others. You can also define the name and occupation
of each character. The customization possibilities in this game are almost endless, with a lot
of references to the anime-chibi aesthetic, as well as touches of fantasy elements. We
can create very kawaii characters in this game! These are classified based on two factors:
Rarity and element. Rarity is measured in stars: The more stars it has, the rarer it
is. There are also six elements: Water, wind, fire, light, darkness and neutral. Gacha Life includes several game modes. Once
our characters are ready we can use the Studio mode to create scenes and stories with them.
On the Gacha tab you will find a display where we can obtain items using our gems. These
will be useful to customize our scenes, or to give them to other character friends. On
the Games mode you will find several mini-games through which you can obtain more gems. Through the Life mode you can interact and
become friends with more than 100 characters by talking to them and giving them gifts.
That way you will obtain experience points that will make you level up. However, doing
this will reduce your stamina meter, which will gradually recover as long as you have
the game active. As you level up you unlock new options in
the game. For instance, when you reach level 10 the Chat tab will become available, which
you’ll be able to use to chat with other users. This makes it so that the game is always offering
us new content, making it very dynamic! In a short amount of time Gacha Life has become
a phenomenon among young people, developing a very loyal and engaged community. It has
become so popular that many users have started to upload videos with their own stories made
in Gacha Life, calling themselves “gachatubers”. Some of their characters are clear references
to anime protagonists, and we can even find many based on creepypastas! Wow! No doubt that people who play Gacha Life
are true artists! And to be honest, after doing some research for this video, we feel
hooked and want to start creating our own gacha stories with Tik and Tak. And what about
you, TikTakers? Have you ever created a character? If you have, feel free to share them with
us through our social media. We look forward to seeing them!
