A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android


Download a collection of extra preset names for the protagonist that come with voice acting! You'll be able to hear the love interest, Cove Holden, say your name of choice out loud. This DLC adds over 600 voiced names to choose from.

This is an optional DLC for the free game Our Life: Beginnings & Always. It can be added to the PC, Mac, or Android build!


To use these files you'll need to have the free base version of Our Life. It can be download HERE.

WINDOWS/LINUX/MAC:

1. Download the free rpa file.

2. Open the folder of your current Our Life Build and find the "game" folder inside. To view folders on Mac you might have to right click the application launcher and select "view package contents" and you may have to open a couple different folders before you find the "game" folder tucked away inside.

3. Move or copy/paste the rpa file into the Our Life "game" folder.

After that, the build you already had will now include all the extra content this DLC gives.

ANDROID:

1. Download the free apk file.

2. If you have any other DLC you're installing, install those first by locating the associated apk file in your file manager and installing it. You may have to give your file manager additional permissions to install from external sources. Be sure to open the game after installing each DLC.

3. Finally, install the voiced name DLC apk. When you open the app, any DLC you installed through steps 1-4 should be available.

You can click the "DLC Info" button on the main menu to check if your content has been successfully installed, or for troubleshooting advice.

is there a download of rar file? it gives me explorer file

I'm currently having problems downloading the new version for Android.   It keeps getting to about 700 MB in before abruptly stopping and telling me that it's forbidden even with all of my device's protections off and through different download managers.  I'm now down 3.5 GB of data trying and failing to download it, some help would be appreciated. 

I'm sorry, it might be a connection thing that's falsely blaming it on it being forbidden. I've seen that happen before where it just won't download and then later on it simply does. Or you could try downloading through the Itch app if you haven't used that, or downloading directly from the webpage if you were using the Itch app.

Attempt to download this Expansion i click install then after a few seconds it quits... also tried different locations

Are you trying to download through the Itch app? Sometimes that doesn't work and you need to use the direct webpage.

Ahh thanks!

No problem!

(1 edit)

I believe the dlc download will create a folder without the necessary rpa file? it's seems to be entirely empty actually. At least on mac anyway! I wonder if that might be the problem people are so commonly running into? Though I'm not the most tech savvy so I could've done something wrong on my end^^;;

Edit just download the dlc from the itch website instead of the app and put the file in the game urself and it should work fine! I managed to figure it out anyway eheh

If I decide to install a DLC later on, will I need to redownload this? I plan on getting the DLCs at a later date but I felt like downloading the names first.

(-1)

I'm trying to install this on linux (i'm using a chromebook lmao) but I am having difficulty understanding what to do. Assistance please?

Can you tell me what problem you're having? Like, which steps on the instructions listed on the page have you done and where did you get tripped up?

I don't have a folder where the Our Life build is located. Or I just can't find it. Where am I supposed to find the build???

The Our Life folder/build is game itself. Where did you put the file you downloaded to play Our Life?

I was unsure where the file went so I tried downloading Our Life 2. Apparently it goes to some where called /home/minju/.config/itch/apps but I am unsure where to find the folder.

hello! I've only just discovered this game and am very excited to play, however I'm having trouble installing the dlc on my MacBook. I've read through the introductions quite a few times and I'm fairly certain that I've done it properly, any suggestions on how to fix this?

(+2)

I'm sorry, I don't know what the problem is. Can you give more details/send a screenshot of what your Our Life folder looks like?

(+4)

Just want to say this. This game made me feel stuff I haven't felt in over a decade. So thank you so much for making this beautiful game.. no experience. It made me feel extremely sad, happy, and everything in between.

I feel like im being such an inconvenience for asking, but is there any way someone can send a video tut for windows? When i try, it says that the rpa file and the game folder are compressing, but it does nothing? Still going to  play if i cant find a way, but its just a bummer :((

Did you unzip the main Our Life folder using something like Winzip or another extractor before you tried adding the rpa? The rpa doesn't need anything changed about the file, it just needs to be dragged and dropped into the game folder. But the main game is a compressed file when first downloaded and needs to be unzipped first before it can be used.

Played around with my device and the extractor that i used, and it finally worked ! Sorry for the trouble, can't wait to play :))

Having some difficulties with downloading.... :((
(Using the itch app on windows) I go to press 'Install' and it doesn't work, saying "An error occurred during installation No manager for installer unknown" 

(+1)

You may have to try downloading directly from the website and not use the app!

(1 edit)

:( for some reason when i play the game i can't hear music or audio. i opened the file with the unarchive, but usually that lets me hear audio, im not sure what's wrong ;-;

got it to work after i restarted my computer!

Hi, I have any quetion. I do all what need, but I still have no dlc. Coud you help me? :(

Can you show me what your Our Life folder looks like if you're using Mac or PC? If you're on Android, make sure to redownload the main game after installing the DLC.

Hi I'm having trouble with the DLC.

I followed the instruction but my game crashes and this is the error message:

ScriptError: Name (u'game/DLC_Derek/derek_dlc_variables.rpy', 1664215893, 0) is defined twice, at DLC_Derek/derek_dlc_variables.rpyc:1 and game/assets/x-game/x-DLC_Derek/x-derek_dlc_variables.rpyc:1.

how do I fix this?

The info is doubled for some reason. Do you have any extra files somewhere? It might be best to delete the game and DLCs, and check that you don't have multiple versions of the file. When you're sure there's nothing else, you can download the game/DLC again to make sure everything is there just once. Deleting the build/files won't mean your progress/saves are deleted, they'll still be there when you get the game back.

hm I did try deleting the game and starting over, but I didn't try re downloading the game and dlc.
Tysm hope it'll work ^^

can someone show me the names so i know if mine is there or not? thnaks lolz <3

I made a Tumblr post listing all of the names a while back. Not completely sure if it's up to date but these are all of the names as of February 2021 here.

Thank you !! they sadly don’t have my name :((

Did i do something wrong? I downloaded the game on android but everytime ithe game opens the moment i click anything other than configure my game crashes

(+1)

Did you redownload the base game? Downloading a DLC will open the DLC file that registers the DLC but isn't playable. To play the game, that has to be the most recent thing you downloaded.

yes i redownloaded the base game and its still crashing on the main menu 

Then it's possible the updated files have gotten the attention of your virus scanner and it's blocking the game. Every time there's an update at least a few people end up having the game be falsely labeled as dangerous because each time new content is added there's a new chance for that to happen. Or it could be that the install had an error and trying again now that a little time has passed will have it install alright and be playable.

Hello I have a few questions!

Is there anyway I can get my name in? Tried looking and my name wasn't there :(

Does the voiced name go through all of the steps and in the Derek DLC?

(+1)

I'm sorry to say that we're no longer adding new names for this project. And only Cove has voiced names, they don't apply to Derek or Baxter or any other character. But when it comes to Cove, it does work in all four Steps.

😝 i doubt any names i use will be in the list

(+2)

just curious but what was the update for this today for?  is it a necessary update?

(+1)

It fixed some issues people had with the overall game since we changed the way Android versions were installed. If you're having no problems, you don't need to worry about it!

okay now that Derek his DLC is out are there any new names added?

The Derek DLC doesn't add any new names.

It works!

(+1)

i followed the instructions for installing the voiced dlc on windows but when i open the game and click on the dlc section on the main menu it tells me that the voiced dlc isn't installe

(+2)

same

(1 edit)

So, I downloaded the game to use on android and installed it, making sure to close it before adding the voiced names dlc.

Got the rpa, went to my file manager, Android, Data

And that's it-

There's no subfolders within there.

I don't think I can add the dlc if the game folder doesn't somehow exist...


If it somehow matters, running Android 12 One UI 4.1 on Samsung Galaxy S10 Ultra 5G

(+1)

So apparently I can't access the contents of this folder using samsung's own file browser, *despite* enabling the option to see hidden system files

Using amaze file browser helped me get around this

is there anywhere else i can download it? because i keep clicking install and it just downloads an empty folder with no rpa file inside.

(+3)

Genuinely sweet and well-crafted game! Cove is so sweet and interesting so I was delighted to see how he grew as the game progressed. I haven't played any of the DLCs yet but I definitely will be coming back to see those eventually. Got me way more emotional than I thought it would too, some really good stuff in here about change and growing up. So good!

HI! Need help.....Love this game and have to for my PC and i download it for my samsung S+10....So it may be because english is not my 1st language or because i'm a idiot...but i'm not sure how to add the DLC on my phone....So again help?...please?...Have read the instruction but i can't....TwT

Hello! I absolutely adore this game with my whole heart but I've recently had an issue where I still hear the music but no voices anymore :( I downloaded voiced name DLC and it was working fine. I went to bed and the next day no one's talking to me! (Still and incredible game either way but everyone's voice is so nice I'd love some help on fixing this pretty please :)

Hello, I had a question on how to do the following instructions on how to play this game on Android, but both me or my step dad (who is a technician) can't figure out what the introductions are tell us to do. Like what rpa file do I download and how do I move on from there as there is no where that I've seen shows where I'd get a file that has a rpa indexation. Like I downloaded the android version like it said and when the instructions said to download a rpa file and seeing the one I downloaded had a different thing in it's name I was thrown into a loop as to what that file was or where it was. Like is it a whole other thing or is it a file within this website? 

I would love to play it on mobile as it's one of my favorite, so I'd like to understand how to do so. Please and thank for your time

The rpa, or rpy if you had the older version, is downloaded on this page. Then you just put it in the "game" folder of Our Life. If you're having trouble getting the file to download, maybe your Android doesn't trust the file. If you're having trouble knowing how to add the file to the game, there's a more detailed guide posted in the past by omniastarr-

These steps worked for me and at least one other user on here (I have a samsung s10. Also, I know there are a lot of steps, but it took me less than 5 minutes):

1. Download the base game from itch.io (this is an .apk file) 

2. Download the DLC(s) you purchased (these are .rpa files) 

3. Download and install Amaze File Manager from the Play Store 

4. Install the base game by clicking on the .apk file and following the prompts to install 

5. Open the Amaze app and follow the prompts to allow access to your files, as well as grant "All files access" (clicking Grant will take you to the Settings location, but you'll have to find Amaze in the list, click on its name, and toggle "Allow access to all files" on) 

6. Once that setting is toggled on, go back to Amaze and find your Downloads folder there. Inside should be all your .rpa files. 

7. Long press on the first .rpa file you want to install and then click on the rest. All of them should be highlighted before the next step. 

8. Once highlighted, click on the copy button (an icon of two rectangles in front of each other) at the top of the app 

9. Navigate to your Android folder within the Amaze app, then the data folder inside of it. You might have to allow another access prompt here. 

10. Scroll down to the "ourlife.demo.apk" file and click on it, then the "files" file inside. 

11. At the top of the app, there should be a new folder button (picture of a folder with a +). Click that and make a new folder called "game". 

12. Click on the "game" folder, and then click the "Use This Folder" button at the bottom of the app. You will again need to grant access through a prompt. 

13. Finally, click the "Paste" button at the bottom of the app, and you should be all set! Open the Our Life app, and enjoy getting married to the best crybaby!!!

YOU ARE A GODSEND. THANK YOU SM

Thanks for the help but I did have trouble understanding if I had to paste the copy files into the data file and if so then there might be a problem as I get an error when trying to do so sadly. And I when I look back I don't see the file at all in the data files. So I'm just a bit confused about that step, I think it was step 9 to 10. But if this is error is just because of my phone then that sucks butt but thank you for helping 👍🏼

I need help moving the voiced name to the game file on my mobile phone please 🙏

Need help i download the dlc voiced but i cant open it and i don't know how to add it to the game

Does anyone know what devices the DCL's work on?

(+1)

i installed the dlc correctly, but my name is not :(



Can someone help? I'm new to Linux and I don't know how to add dlcs. Ive got the Linux itch.io app if that helps.

For some reason, the file is in the folder but it isn't showed up as DLC downloaded in the app.

- I've relaunched the app

- I've restarted my device

- I've downloaded from the site

- Android version 12, our life version 1.5.1

I need a bit of help here, what am I doing wrong here?

(1 edit)

hellooo i downloaded the one for windows and i went into the game folder but i don't really understand what to do from there. can someone with windows guide me through what to do? do i need to purchase something?

this is my first time downloading a game like this and i dont know what DLC means or anything lol

pls help :')

You don't need to purchase the Voiced Name DLC. You just take the .rpa file downloaded from this page and put it into the Our Life "game folder" that you get from the main Our Life: Beginnings and Always page! Also, don't use the Itch app to download the DLC, that doesn't seem to work for people. It's best to download directly from the website.

(1 edit)

hi! Sorry for the inconvenience but I dont know if its just my phone being dumb or something, but it won't let me edit the game files to add in the dlcs- every time i tap the file it asks if i want to open the app, even when i have the dlcs copied and ready to move. I have a galaxy note 10 if that helps with anything, and i also want to add i've downloaded multiple types of file managers/apk editors and nothing worked- i'm not very savvy when it comes to this sort of thing, though, so I may be just doing something wrong? 

Here's a guide from omniastarr that might help!

6. Once that setting is toggled on, go back to Amaze and find your Downloads folder there. Inside should be all your .rpa files.

I was alerted to updates to both the base game and all the dlc, so I set them to download, only for all the expansions (Step 1, 2, and 3, and Voiced name) to fail with the message: 

"An error occurred during installation No manager for installer unknown"

Can someone please help? I've got no idea what this means, or what to do.


Are you downloading from the app? That's been having problems and downloading directly from the site seems to work better.

Yeah, I was. I got it working now though. :)

For those facing problems, my experience was that the base game worked fine in the app, but downloading the dlcs in the app made it freak out. Downloading them through the website and then installing them in the base game's file worked, but then even the base game wouldn't run. So I uninstalled it, then reinstalled (still in the app), checked all the files were where they needed to be, and lo and behold, it works. Yay \0v0/

Thank you very much for letting me know how it worked out for you! I'm glad you got them added.

Quick question does this game work on windows 7? cuz thats the pc im usuin

yup ofc!!

hey who's your pfp? looks really cool!

(1 edit)

it's Hu Tao from genshin impact but male version :)!

I extracted the rpy files and the voices. The game has all the extra names, yet when I click on one of them it has this error screen. I tried to quit the game and play again, but it still has the same error as before. I don't really know what the problem is.

But don't worry! I won't quit playing the game even if it has a minor issue. The game is great overall, even without the extra names :)) .

I'm sorry you're having trouble. Can you give me a screenshot of your game folder? The error is saying the name file isn't there so something about where the names were put seems to be off.

Here's the game folder.

Do you know where the "voices" folder from the expansion pack is? I see you added the rpys, which unlock the screen, but I can't see the folder that includes all the voiced name sound files. Maybe you missed copying it over?

(3 edits)

I copied and pasted the contents of it.
The cove_step1-3 are the voice folders.
Do I need to extract the whole voice folder? (the one with the blue highlight)

Umm...may I ask where is the game folder?

It depends on your device.

Windows:

Mac:


um..my window's folder is not like this

You take the files from the voiced name pack and put them into the game folder for Our Life. There isn't a game folder in the voiced name pack itself.

(+3)

I don't know how else to explain it, but this game is an emotional roller coaster. I love it. I wish more games were like this allowing for many endings and not one cookie cutter ending regardless of choices.
