'The Tenants' Is a Great Game About Landlord Jobs That Shouldn't Exist

Maximilian Yates is one of the many residents of my increasingly-sprawling rental empire in The Tenants, an early-access "landlord sim" that combines the resource management inherent in any game about managing properties with the building and decorating from The Sims franchise. Maximilian doesn't like me much. I don't blame him.

Feels like a game that lacks a thesis but should actually have one. I wonder who thought what we needed in 2021 was a landlord simulator.

great piece, sounds like a frustrating game…

But this game, unlike The Sims , is not about the strange puzzle of humanity. If anything it’s about the puzzling inhumanities of being a landlord.
