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
