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. Players get to explore the potential outcomes (multiple endings) to their chosen paths.

There will be two separate ‘Editions’ coming out; one in August and one somewhere in the months thereafter. I want the game to be available for everyone out there, including those looking to play for free.

By staying true to the game’s core concept, you are able to choose:

The “Early Edition” is NOT a demo, it is the full base game as I envisioned it from the start. It will be a finished product (after early access), available to all.

Once the free version has been polished and improved with the help of your feedback, the paid version will be made available. The “Deadly Edition” will initially be the base game + several bonus endings. Over time, this version will be expanded with additional content update(s), achievements and subtitles.


Both versions will remain available to everyone at all times. However, let’s say you loved Imagine Lifetimes and want to see more of it, purchasing the “Deadly Edition” will allow me to invest more time into creating exciting new content!

If you read all this, you have earned yourself a delicious slice of cake!



Got any questions, thoughts or suggestions about Imagine Lifetimes? Let me know, I'm happy to help at all times! In addition, I will be collecting your Frequently Asked Questions for an upcoming article.

Thanks for all the lovely comments, follows and poll votes on IndieDB and GameJolt. I appreciate every single view. Now let’s get this game out there in August! (coming to GameJolt, date TBA)



Will there be a Android version available for mobile users?

Hey there,

I'm currently focusing on the Windows (PC) build and after that I will likely be looking into getting the game out for Mac. Unfortunately, I can't make any promises about mobile at this moment.
