Game Description

See What You Can Accomplish in 10 Years - What Will You Become?

"It's 6:20 PM on April 14, 2006. You are 20 years old and single. You live alone in a small flat in Greenville, a quiet, unremarkable town. Somehow you left school without any qualifications to speak of, and you have a dead end job that doesn't have much of a future.

What are you going to do with your life? What will you have achieved by your 30th birthday?"

So begins Kudos!

Very Fun Life Simulation

In this addicting life simulation game, you control all aspects of your character's life - social, economic, career, leisure activities, and more - for a ten year period in the prime of life.

As you probably know, decisions in real life are often hard, and always have consequences, for better or worse.

What if you could try a few things out in a game first, with no real-life consequences? Woulda, coulda, shoulda - ever wondered what might have happened if you'd made different choices?

With Kudos, now you can find out!

Extremely Realistic Gameplay

Just as in reality, to be successful playing Kudos you'll need to balance personal relationships, work responsibilities, and all the other aspects of life you might encounter!

Choose your friends well and make sure to spend time together or you could lose them. Go out to restaurants, movies, the opera, even bars!

Build your friendships and earn kudos points to meet even more interesting people. You'll find yourself rooting for your character to succeed in life!

Live the Life You've Always Wanted!

Money, cars, clothing, jewelry, fame, love - no prospect is shut to you in Kudos!

Tired of that $13,000 a year job as a waiter?

  • Go to night school for a while & get an education
  • Become a surgeon
  • Become a lawyer
  • Become a businessperson
  • Be an entertainer
  • Or almost anything else

In Kudos, it's all up to you!

What Will You Do Today?

You can even choose to make small, daily decisions like how to get to work, what to buy at stores, and whether to go jogging or not.

Each decision you make will affect your character's personality attributes, job performance, and social life, so choose wisely!

Lots of Options and Great Replay Value!

Kudos includes incredible depth of gameplay, so no single game you play will be like any other. There are so many ways to play the game that you'll want to explore them all!

Play mini-games to increase your character's intelligence, shop for all kinds of products to make life better.

The objective of the game is up to you - gain as much wealth as you can, make as many friends as you can, or get the best job you can find . . . or do it all at once!

Choose your character's image and appearance. Enable advanced backdrops, weather effects, music, and autosave. You can play on easy, normal, or hard difficulty for the best possible game experience, so give Kudos a try.

With Kudos, all the doors in life are open - will you have the courage to walk through?  Download Kudos now and find out!

I’m in my late twenties and really enjoyed playing this game. I really liked how the game had a schedule for the character to play and hoe the character related to friends and such. You also have to maintain yourself in the process. I will be buying the full version REAL soon.

43211 Kudos- a life simulation, Jul 15, 2009
by Allison

This game is so addicting at times that you forget to log off and live your actual life. While it may seem that clicking around a colorful gameplay screen for hours directing someone’s life would be lame, the amount of different paths you can take and choices you can make turn this game into hours of fun. I like the easy, self-explanatory gameplay, and the feeling of moving up in the world. For example, in every game, you start out as a waiter/waitress who has absolutely no job skills. From this humble beginning, you proceed to socialize with your friends (thus earning ‘kudos’), take night classes to gain valuable job skills, and move up the corporate ladder. For example, in my last game, my waitress moved up to be a junior doctor by taking a night class just two days a week. Progress is quick too. But just like in real life, you have to balance yourself and manage your time. An over-stressed character will not be able to concentrate in class, and friends will say they did not like your mood.

Overall, there is really nothing I don’t like about this game, other than the fact that I eventually have to get off of it. I highly recommend it.

Kudos was a fun and entertaining game in which you control a character’s life, what they can do, what there personality is, what jobs they can go for.
A great simulation game with fun for all.

The first time i played this game i was a bit skeptic because i had played so many other strategy games before and after getting the hang of it your time is up but after the first 5mins of Kudos i was hooked. Its like real life you want to live. I cant wait to come to work everyday just to play. In my ten years life span i became a surgeon, owned an expensive car made a lot of money,hung out with the popular groups, ate at expensive restaurants,lived a balanced,healthy and happy life. I also got the opportunity to become very cultured and well spoken. It was so much fun i even forgot it was a game lol.The only thing i did not like was that the trial version expired lol, I would definitely load the full version if i could.
KUDOS to Kudos!!!

Making decisions in your own life can be over-whelming, stressful, just down right nasty. Ever wondered what it was like to see your results before you even had to make them?

Kudos is a virtual life game that allows you to pick and choose the life that you would have wanted to live. Riches, clothing, education…you name it!

With your imagination at work your character will advance through many different life styles in an amazingly fun way to do it. This game includes fun for the whole family - from teens to grown adults.

Prices don’t compare when it comes to Kudos, i guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
