Imagine Lifetimes
is a satirical simulation game about the meaning of life. Question the absurdity of existence as you figure out what it means to be alive. As in real life, two randomly generated parents define your character through genes. Born with the ability to choose, your actions and decisions shape the paths laid out in front of you.

Don't let the simplicity of this game fool you, every choice made affects the outcome of your play-through. Every decision may lock or unlock certain paths ahead of you. Imagine Lifetimes is essentially an extensive summary of life, with many ups and downs, challenges and choices.

You can now wishlist Imagine Lifetimes on Steam, release date: September 25th, 2020

Dear IndieDB,

The time has come for Imagine Lifetimes to spread its wings and make its way to IndieDB!

You can now download the Early Edition (demo build) directly from the comforts of the Imagine Lifetimes IndieDB game-page. This includes the latest major update to the game which was released upon the internet on the 28th of December!

Imagine Lifetimes - Early Edition 1.1.0


This update to the Early Edition marks the completion of the early access build.

Development of the Deadly Edition has officially begun! I'm oh-so excited to take this passion project to the next level over the course of 2020. The Early Edition (free) will remain available forever, over time it will receive minor fixes and additional language support. New content and major updates to the game will be exclusively added to the Deadly Edition (paid).

If you enjoyed the early access build consider supporting this project by either making a donation (name your price) or purchasing the Deadly Edition on GameJolt when it's released in 2020. <3

Hey there, as much as I would LOVE to expand to other platforms, at the moment I am focusing on Windows (PC) only. After that I do have the ambition to port the game to MacOS, unfortunately I can't make any promises about mobile at this time.

can you do a tutorial on how to install

I don't have a video to guide you through the installation but perhaps these steps will help you figure it out:

Step 1: Make sure you are playing on Windows (PC), as the game is currently available for windows only.

Step 2: Download the .zip from IndieDB by clicking the download button on the game-page.

Step 3: Right click the .zip folder and unzip / unpack it.

Step 4: Open the newly created (opened) folder to access the .exe file.

Step 5: Click the .exe file to launch the game.

If the game does not start properly it is most likely caused by your antivirus. If that happens to you, mark the game as safe manually and you should be good to go!

Let me know if you need anything else, I’d be happy to help!

Why not make the one time thing a once and a while thing?

What are the controls? I want to scroll to pick a major but it doesn’t seem to be working on a laptop?

The December 28 (2019) update fixed this issue, there's an additional slider that you can click and drag to scroll down the list now.

Hey there, I'm sorry for the late response but you can download and play the game (windows) on GameJolt. Also, it will be made available here on IndieDB somewhere in either December 2019 or January 2020.
