Stock Life is a simple yet realistic stock investment game that lets you feel your own emotion towards the market by experiencing a quick historical walkthrough of stock charts. It's the state of mind that an investor would experience with real stock markets.
In Stock Life, you hold an initial capital of $100,000 to invest in the game stock market through simulations from historical data. Each game term represents five years of your life. After each term, you have a choice of buying a house (if you can afford it) and a choice of vacations you can take in areas across the globe. Buying or upgrading a house represents the devotion you have to your family from a financial point of view because you will have less money left to invest in the stock market in the next term. Likewise, spending money on vacations represents a devotion to entertainment and building up joyful memories that you will carry throughout your life.
How much money might you have in fifty years? Will you be a millionaire living in a big mansion by the beach with number of poster cards detailing your travels around the world? Or, could you end up with millions of dollars with no vacations or a family in your life? Making money is one thing, but spending money to keep life in balance is a whole other matter.
The game uses real historical data to simulate the stock market without showing the name and time period of the market until the end of each term. Your tool to invest will be reading the chart and predicting its movement as you would follow a stock’s price movement in real life. To simplify a complex stock investment into a quick game simulation, we converge all the factors that influence a real stock price into a simple market psychology: a price chart that shows a market's mindset. Will you be an aggressive investor who follows a market's momentum, or will you only buy a stock when you think a stock's price is relatively low? Only you can tell, for it's a test of wills and a judgement of the mind state of the market in this game, as well as in real life.
