Cart Life: The Lemonade Stand Sim for the 21st Century

by Paul Strauss

I love indie games. There’s just a sort of a creative freedom, ingenuity and singular artistic vision in many of these games that makes them often more fun than the big blockbusters. One unusual little indie game that recently popped onto my radar screen was Cart Life. It’s actually been around for a couple of years, but it’s new to me.

The game dusts off the old lemonade stand type sim of the 1980s and breathes fresh life into it. Cart Life was developed by Richard Hofmeier, and offers a retro style befitting its gameplay.

The game puts you in charge of the livelihood of one of several citizens of a fictitious city, and asks you to build and operate their various street vending businesses. But these characters not only have business goals to meet, they each have needs and addictions which must be fed, as well as unique personality traits. It’s as much about money management and business skills as managing risk and reward for your sims.

Cart Life is available as a free download for Windows PCs here. Richard also offers a deluxe edition with a bonus game, soundtrack MP3s and a bonus playable character for just $5(USD). There’s also a fan-made Mac port available here.
