Real Lives is an educational game in which you take the role of a person in just about any country in the world. You are given a random country, gender, name, and family and must go through life. You can choose your education, leisure activities, job, and also make many moral choices along the way. Lives can be lived in about an hour or two, so you can experience life from someone else's point of view just about any time you want.
The game also contains a character designer where you can select your country, name, and attributes if you're looking for a specific simulation.
