Pathea Launches Giant Free ‘New Semester’ Update for Acclaimed PC Management Sim, Let’s School

Time to show the world who the REAL headmaster is in this highly-rated school management simulation, from the makers of My Time At Sandrock

LAS VEGAS – 7th February 2024: PM Studios and Pathea Games are delighted to announce that the beloved school management simulation game Let’s School has today received its biggest update to date – titled ‘New Semester’.

Let’s School launched on Steam as a hidden gem in 2023, accruing a 92% positive rating from 3600+ user reviews, and since then Pathea has been working hard on expanding every aspect of this well-received title. In Let’s School, players take on the role of a solo headmaster, with the ultimate task to transform a run-down institution into a unique educational haven with stunning landscapes and up to six-storey buildings!

A fusion between traditional building sim and school management game, Let’s School not only absorbs all the great things from Western and East Asian institutions, but also offers the ability to experience the day-to-day lives of each individual and potentially shape their destiny for the better. The interactions, relationships and friendship which blossom as you build your school is one of the most fascinating things about this cult hit.

With the 25% off price promotion and the New Semester major content update, there has never been a better time to check out Let’s School!

The free New Semester update offers an improved tutorial experience, After School Clubs, new building styles and lots more. To see this new content in action, check out the New Semester launch trailer below:

  • NEW FEATURE – Community Investment
    This new late game feature allows players to invest funds back into the local community surrounding their school by building new facilities and sponsoring special activities. Make the (in-game) world a better place and improve the lives of students both in and out of school. 
  • NEW FEATURE – School Closure Procurement
    Players can now obtain resources from schools that have been closed.  This includes staff (such as teachers), items, furniture, management modules and more. Don’t let any educational resource go to waste!

  • NEW Characters from My Time At Sandrock Join the Fun
    Characters from Sandrock are arriving in Let’s School! Logan will join academies as a student and Nia can join your faculty as an art teacher. Pathea has also added a Sandrock community in the map and students there will all be wearing Sandrock builder apparel.
  • NEW FESTIVAL EVENTS – Christmas and New Year
    During certain times of year, students will dress up in special costumes to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Players will be able to unlock seasonal directions by completing fun objectives in-game and place them liberally around their school.

To mark this update’s launch and Chinese New Year celebrations, Let’s School is currently available at a 25% discount until 14th February via Steam and other partnered digital platforms.

Since launching in July last year, Pathea Studios has added festival events, new faculty types and 100 new decorative items to Let’s School, as well as lots of optimisations and quality of life improvements.
