Offering a large social community within a mobile app Avakin Life offers you the ability to start your own new virtual life within your iOS or Android device. Customise your own avatar and an apartment while hanging out with countless people in the unique virtual social locations. Avakin Life captures an ideal blend of customisation, house building and social elements which in turn has captivated millions of players across both app stores.

Starting with the creation of your avatar players have a range of options including gender, face paint, skin colour, hair, facial hair, eyes, mouth, ears and eyebrows. This means there is nothing stopping you from recreating yourself within Avakin Life or opting to create a new persona entirely. Further customisation of your Avakin avatar is offered through the healthy collection of clothing items and accessories both on initial creation but expanded further with gameplay levels. For those that would rather hop right into the virtual world a convenient random button will quickly create an avatar for you.

Avakin Life is broadly split into 3 game elements; social, clothing and housing. Socialising is where most players will spend the bulk of their time and takes place across a number of scenes such as parks, lounges, bars, cafes and even beaches. These locations serves as hubs for players to come together and each of these have various interactive objects to help it feel like a real location which can be activated with simple one touch controls. Players can engage in chat, add friends or private chat people from each of these hub locations.

When not socialising in Avakin Life you’ll be spending your allotment of game coins on attractive new outfits, hair styles and furniture for your own in game apartment. Other purchases include special animations for your characters and even pet that all serve the purpose of showing off your style to other players while presenting the unique items that you have accumulated within Avakin Life.

The largest sink of your in game funds though is the apartment system where you can purchase a beautiful piece of personal space that can be customised further with your own pieces of furniture and used as a hub to bring together your friends in a single location. Each apartment also gives players a daily diamond income for premium items and can be voted on by other users which encourages careful style selection to maximise premium currency earned.
