Why Can't There Be More Games Like This?!?!


Recommended Posts

So, I've been playing this game on Steam (also available for Windows, Apple, and Android) It's a Visual Novel called Our Life: Beginnings and Forever, produced by GB Patch. If you've never played a Visual Novel before, think of Japanese anime, with dialog options to choose from. However, what sets this game apart from others of the same genre is that choices are actually important. Instead of 2-3 responses for choice, this game gives a player 7-9 or even 12 options to respond with! And instead of a cardboard cutout of some lame character "archetype", these choices also impact the love interest, Cove Holden. How you respond to him will change his growth as a person over the course of the story. Seriously, I laughed, cried, and even got angry/annoyed with some characters at various moments! I am absolutely enamored with this game and its heart-melting cuteness!  :heart:

  • 4 chapters featuring free and paid downloadable content, spanning four life stages. (Chapter 4 is currently TBA.)
  • 15 years, 4 summers, and (maybe) a $20 bill?
  • Play as male, female, or non-gendered, with a fully customizable avatar. Details can be changed in later chapters, including gender!
  • The game features two "rival" romantic characters, but the romantic scenes are also TBA.
  • Choose to ignore Cove Holden, romance him, or simply stay friends until the end.

Hehehehe....Just a little news update. The DLC for Step 3 will be released on April 16th!  :P Don't wanna give away too much, but there's some new artwork, five new scenarios or "Moments" to play, and the avatar creator will now include options for employment status, if the player chooses to have a job. Step 4 will be released in Fall 2021. Guess we gotta be patient for a while longer!

Actually, the Steam website has, like, a whole PILE of games created for and by the LGBTQ community. They have almost 700 games with LGBTQ characters! From what I've seen, though, most of those games aren't on the same level as this one.  :D

Hehehe! I've seen some of these, but usually ones that aren't, exactly, SFW. 😮

Anyway, this is the kind of thing I do like to play! I have to be careful, though, cuz I can get addicted to games like they're Crack if I'm not careful! :gikkle:
