If you're a proud member of the PC master race, PC Building Simulator may seem like a game straight out of your dreams. Developed by The Irregular Corporation this is a game that brings you something you probably didn't know you wanted. Simulation games have always been very popular, and thanks to the indie developers we have a simulator for just about anything. This game could very well be one of the most original simulation games made in years and really takes seriously the simulation part. Let's talk more about that.
What's this all about?
PC Building Simulator is exactly what the name implies. You'll be in charge of a computer repair business, with all of what this implies. One of the only simulations out there that actually serves a real purpose too while being a cool, original game.
As a technician, you'll be asked to perform different tasks in repairing and/or modifying computers, this means swapping processors, changing the cooling system, cleaning up the hardware piece by piece and much more. But the more you progress the higher the quality will be the builds you'll be able to put together.
There's a level system that will make it more of a game-like experience. The more jobs you take the more experience you earn. As you earn experience you will level up and will be able to purchase better parts for your builds.
Clients will also task you with making a custom build for them, for these missions, you'll have to pay close attention to the instructions they give you, the closer you are to completely follow them, the happier they'll be and you'll receive more experience. But remember that having your own shop doesn't come free, as you'll need to make enough money every month to be able to pay the services and even pay rent.
If you just want to go crazy and build your dream machine you can also access the free play mode. You'll have unlimited resources and no worries at all to build the computer you'd like. The game has an excellent didactic element It is extremely realistic in the process of building up each computer. It has real-life pieces you could even go out and buy. If you have the money, so you can also think of it as a planner. And if you've always wanted to learn, this is the best way. You'll end up throwing away less money and get a detailed step-by-step explanation to guide you through your build.
A realistic simulation
Thanks to the more intense nature of most sim games out there, few people really do have the opportunity to perform in real life what they do in the games. But this is one of the only video games you can truly live. Comparing it to a sim like Surgeon Simulator, where the only real simulation element is that most of the surgeries you have to perform actually exist in real life. In Surgeon Simulator it's all just about having fun, no surgery in the world is performed like that, but you'll have tons of fun. In PC Building Simulation is the opposite, it is so realistic it may end up being a bit boring for the general audience.
PC Building Simulator is an excellent didactic experience, and it is also a comfy game. The simulation works great and there are a ton of real pieces in there, it does what you'd expect the game to do, and in the best possible way.
Graphics and Visuals: The game goes directly for a hyper-realistic approach. The models look excellent and even the lights and overall game design. In this game, beauty lies in its simplicity.
Gameplay: As a didactic experience it is great, the tutorials serve perfectly like a manual to build a computer. The controls are simple and easy to understand, but it can get quite boring after a little while.
Sound: You might want to just go for your own music on this one, Soundtrack is as dull and bland as it gets.
