1. Youtubers Life
While there was a time when operating a YouTube channel might not have been considered running a business, it’s hard to argue that now. Youtubers Life puts you in the humble shoes of a YouTuber trying to start a channel with some basic equipment.
Like real-life YouTubers, you are motivated by subscribers and views, building your arsenal of equipment to make better videos, expanding your following and growing your channel. In addition to developing a social media presence in this fictional setting, you must also manage a social life, education and eventually employees.
Youtubers Life is a single-player video game available on Steam and compatible with Microsoft Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
You can also play Youtubers Life 2. This sequel has features like in-game real-life YouTubers, different types of content to cover and a city you can explore to inspire your content. You can find Youtubers Life 2 on Steam and access it via Windows, macOS, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
