i remember playing it last year during summer, it's been such a long time so i'll play it a second time!
this visual novel got to be my favourite and it helped comfort me during hard times as i'm an highschooler c:

(+2)

No questions asked AND ı won't be listening to anyone because this game was definitely my FAVORİTE game throughout all the visual novels I HAVE EVER PLAYED. ı really REALLY love it. so comforting with such throughout characters. You can clearly see the developers actually poured their hearts and souls while making this. thank you, ıt was the loveliest game ı played in a LONG LONG while. 

I love this game a whole lot although I wish there was a way I could confirm I bought all the DLC on Steam so I wouldn't have to buy them twice. But I still love this game so so much!!!

On Android, is there a way to back scroll through text? and I don't mean just pulling up the log. But going back to a choice and selecting a new one? On PC it's with the mouse wheel but I can't figure out how to do so on Android. 

(+1)

I'm afraid right now there isn't a way to do that on Android, but we may be able to add that as a feature in the future.

Help :((((((((

so I tried yk putting the dlc

and its been doing the process thing for so long, it hasnt done anything, and i cant close it.

It also denies me access when I try to open the file and I don't know whats up.

Is it something up with my computer? idk what to do :(

(+1)

Something similar has been happening to me too. Like I was able to play the DLCs previously but now it's bringing up a notepad saying that something named impletation is missing or something.

@IVVIX
The same advice could work for your situation. The DLC doesn't need to be opened like it did in the past. You just put it inside the game folder and leave it alone. If it's not working it may not be in the right folder. Could you post a screenshot of your Our Life folder?

It's hard to explain the amount of love I have for this game. This is my favorite VN ever. I first played this during 2020 when I was at my lowest, playing it I cried multiple times because of how loved I felt and the love I felt towards Cove. I have nearly 200 hours from playing this many times, and sometimes falling asleep playing it.  I had to stop myself from playing it, so I could play it again when I have all the DLCs, I plan to get them on my birthday.  It's actually a bit hard for me to go about my day-to-day life, because I really want to play this again. But I must prevail and be patient until the fateful day. I can't wait to see Cove again, and see all the new memories I will make with him, as well as the other memories I will make with Derek and Baxter.

(+7)

I literally cried from nostalgia remembering my own days of infancy and teen days, especially my child days which were, just like portrayed in this game, extremely happy and memorable, and the way you guys portrayed the early days was indeed very accurate, it was almost like a window to my own past, epecially when i relate a lot to the Mc, Cove (well at least i see him as the Main character), Thank you all for making this little story, will def be purchasing some of the DLCs, and i'm sure i will be felling the same, if not better, about Now & Forever. 


Please take care everyone...

(+7)

This may be a little sappy but I /need/ to say it: Thank you.

I'm finding this in a very dark moment in my life and I swear, seeing Cove grow "with me" gave me enough strength to get out of the bed two consecutive days. I just thought "He won't like to see me like this" and that was enough.

Thank you, playing this made me so happy and I trully felt loved, the story is absolutely amazing and well-written. I'll keep an eye on you, I'm claming myself as a new devoted follower. You do amazing things and I look forward to anything you create.

I just know it'll be awesome.

(+3)

PS: I'll always come back to Cove, ngl. But, hey, I truly look forward to any stories you'll make. Pinkie-promise.

(+1)

ive been playing this game for a while, I absolutely adore it:)) but I was wondering if there was a way to delete old save files that I havent found out yet?? I have some pretty old ones that im not really interested in keeping anymore, so I was wondering if there was a delete feature!!

(+2)

Glad you like it! On PC and Mac you can hover over the file and hit the delete key on your key board to remove old saves. On Android there isn't a button that can delete them.

(+1)

alright! thanks so much for responding:))

(+3)

Help, I really love this game 😭

I fall for this man oh god. Great and memorable story. I'm crying and keep thinking abt it when finished, denial that it's over:""

A song "I Wanna Ruin Our Friendship" made me remember about this game and Cove. And "Beautiful Things" is like a Cove POV's toward MC:"")

(1 edit) (+3)(-1)

This is what a story should be, not all of them but they should feel like this. I actually remembered a part of my childhood that didn't suck thanks to this game. Hope the developers live their best lives. 

3dit: I have to pay for the wedding? :( but get that bag I guess 

(+3)

this game is just mind blowing.. i loved every second of it and i love how it always surprises me, the customization is incredible even the small detail that you think don't really matter actually have a small impact in the game! Cove is adorable and seeing him grow while still keeping his childish and sensitive side is making me a lil emotional.. One thing i would have liked is a lil more of a mean character, i know there was Jeremy but he was quickly forgotten, it would have been nice seeing Cove stand up for himself with someone else than his family, kinda like how he used to with Lizzy on step 1! I overall really spent an awesome time playing this game! I'll definitely buy the DLC

(+3)

The DLC is ABSOLUTLY worth it!

(+5)

this is so, so cute. melt my heart fr

(+10)

i wish there were more games like this one

(+1)

they actually have one development its called "Our Life: Now & Forever" theres only the demo but i highly recommend it!!

I want the Chinese version!

(+6)

playing thru this a second time and like

it always catches me so off guard when Mr. Holden and Kyra are interacting cuz i personally think i can still feel chemistry and i feel like

they were meant to be just not in this life and i find it bittersweet

(1 edit) (+5)

at the very least i think Mr. Holden still loves Kyra

(+1)

i really agree! but i am just insanely happy they've been able to work together for cove and still be a family in their own way!

(+16)

send help 

i am deeply in love with a fictional green-haired man

(+1)

I'm new here, and my friend of mine recommended this, and now as i'm trying on my android phone, i'm always stuck at Mc customize and then it automatically leave me the game. Help :'(

(+1)

I really loved playing this, This was simply a amazing visual novel game. in this game everyone has their own life and has their own charatistic, you have so many choices and many many ending that blows your mind. I like how it doesnt force you to be with cove. I would to buy dlc but sadly I am student from another country so its impossible for as its cost too muc haha. I reccomend this game for everyone who is looking for peace and bad ending story :3

(+1)

Loved this!!!

(+3)

Well, it's been almost a year since I played this game, and I want to say that it is the best visual novel I have played so far. I played this video game when I was going through a very difficult time emotionally, physically and mentally, so much so that it was difficult for me to get out of bed without feeling pain, crying or despairing, and this visual novel made me feel at peace, It made me feel like everything was going to be okay. 

It is a VERY customizable game, with many routes, MANY options to choose from, which I LOVED, with characters that are easy to identify with. This visual novel takes reality to its magical side, with things so everyday and yet charming. 

I have to say that I played the game as many times as I could. Also, it allowed me to improve my English A LOT, since English is not my native language. In between playing I had to learn many words from daily life that I didn't know, and without realizing it, the third time I played I could already read the texts well without getting stuck in my head, I even read aloud trying to give a voice to the characters .  

I loved being able to live such a beautiful story that does not take the drama to the extreme, but rather are characters like ordinary people living their lives, with their own problems. 

I thank the entire team behind this wonderful visual novel for creating this. I am grateful for all your effort, which must have been a lot. I love you ♡

One more thing, the last time I downloaded the game on my cell phone, a Samsung Galaxy A51, I was able to download it, but for some reason it doesn't download now.

I'm really glad you had such a good experience with the game! If it's not downloading maybe there's an older version of the game still somewhere on the device that needs to be uninstalled. Or more space might be needed.

Thanks ♡ 

OMG, Thank you very much, your advice worked! I almost cried when I was able to download it again. I am eternally grateful to you ♡♡♡ 

I love this game so much! Enjoying the DLC and currently on step 4. Thing is, when I opened up the game I'm stuck on the loading screen and I use Mac :( Idk how to fix it I rlly love this game and I want to have a second play through after finishing my first haha.

I'm sorry I don't know. If it worked before and not now, maybe there was an update on the device than changed things or the device decided not to let the program run anymore because of a virus scanner? Perhaps uninstalling and reinstalling could help.

I found out the reason! I had 3 copy of the game in my other files and after deleting them it started working, I finished the game and I'm so happy! This game will always have a place in my heart <3

(+6)

Highly recommend this game if you love the childhood friends to lovers trope - the game gives you so many options that make your character unique and special. The game also does its best to make it really feel like you're growing up with the main love interest and everyone around you, by jabbing jokes on you in step 3 abt something that happened in step 1. It makes it feel so real.

I also love the way each character was made, all have so many amazing personalities that grow in every step to adulthood. Recommend this game if you're just really into romance.

Also the dlcs are worth it. I'm not gonna say exactly why and ruin the fun for others, all I'm gonna say is that the dlcs truly made it all more enjoyable for me. That's all i have to say, 9/10 game :)

Would be a ten if there was a back button like in OLN&F

(+2)

it occured to me that after following this game for almost its entire development, dropping hundreds of hours on it and buying almost every DLC, I haven't left a comment!!


This is absolutely hands down my favourite game of all time-- i find myself coming back again and again for comfort, when I need to relax, or when i just miss cove, baxter, derek, and all the lovely characters too much. GB patch has set the bar for all visual novels and to this day, I've yet to see another meet the standard (except maybe OL:NF when it comes out!!)


I wanted to write an official thank you to GB Patch for creating such an incredible game!! truly, OLBA never fails to make me cry and warm me up when i'm having a rough day. My only wish is that there was more OLBA content out there :')


This game has literally changed my life!! 

(+1)

Love this game!!! It took me two days to finish it but I'm pretty sure that's because I stayed up to play it. I fell so in love with all the characters and the story itself,  that now I'm feeling a bit forlorn that I'm done but I'm glad to lived this story! Awesome storytelling!!

(+3)

i just played this for the first time on steam and felt that i have to personally tell u how life changing this was++ playing this helped me out so much during a stressful week at uni tysm will be thinking about cove forever and ever

(+5)

I've had this on my phone for awhile now, and every time I play I fall more obsessed! This is an AMAZING game. Love the DLC's and how you can enjoy the game without them as well. Worth all my time

Hey! I downloaded the APK for my phone but for some reason when I open the game, it closes when I press any buttons? Do you have any idea how to help? 

(-1)

You can try opening up more space for it to run, it needs more than it takes to download onto the phone, and you can check to see if a virus scanner is refusing to let it run. But sometimes the game is too difficult for a phone to run. We are working on updates to decrease the size and make it easier to load on Androids!

(1)when you made the NSFW moment that is up on the patreon, why did you make it and what were your thoughts about it?

(2)If you ever did the same thing to OL2 can there be an alternative way to get it instead of patreon? Cause there are countries that block access to patreon and giveaways doesn't sound like an effective solution

(+2)

1. I made it because sexual content isn't a bad thing for adults and a totally normal part of many relationships. But it couldn't be in the base game since the story is safe for teens and so it had to be Patreon only.

2. I'm afraid we probably aren't going to make bonus stories like that for OL2. It's not in the plans right now at least. We've just gotta focus on doing the normal game content. But I am sorry to those who aren't able to support the Patreon and would like to have those extras.

Cn you upload the Mac version to Steam pls I already paid for every DLC!

We do hope to get it on Mac for Steam at some point, but I don't know when yet.

(+2)

iv replayed this game multiple times, and every time it has managed to make me cry, there's something so, real, about this game, I love it

Hi Im doing a project for my game development class and I was wondering what county is most simular to Sunset Bird?

(+1)

I'm really sorry, I don't remember. It's based off memories of visiting little beach towns from when I was a kid myself and I don't know the name of the county I was of. But I hope you're project goes well!

Thanks for replying, I hope you have good luck on the new O.L game, can't wait for its next public update!

(+1)

It's a very wonderful game, the character design is amazing, the plot is wonderful and everything that happens is so engaging that you even want to play it several times. I played it on pc and it's really worth buying the dlc but the problem is when I want to play on my phone (Android), the game immediately kicks me out of the menu when I click new game 😭

the only reason that happens for me is low storage, but idk if thats a problem for you

Actually I have a lot of space in my storage and it still doesn't work

(+2)

You could try turning off the animations in the settings before starting a new game. Sometimes the game is just too difficult to run. But we are working on updates to decrease the size and make it easier to load on Androids. 

(+1)

Thanks for such a wonderful, thoughtfully-designed, and touching game. I love coming back to it when I need some coziness and calm.

I encountered the following error today with Cove's appearance customization when heading into step 4. My base game and DLCs are up to date. Error log is below.

Thank you for the kind words! Is the save file also from the most up-to-date version of the game DLCs? It's possible using an old save in a newer version with a lot of updates can 'cause an error.

Oh I see! That's probably the issue since it was an older save. Thanks for the quick response!

No problem!

(+3)

this is probably one of the best visual novels I have ever played in my life AND FOR FREE TOO???? I played this game for giggles and at the end of it I was so sincerely touched--it was way more than I was expecting. I appreciate everything is game has- you can tell this was really thought out and made with passion. awesome ass game, y'all gotta play!!!!!!

(1 edit) (+3)

this game means so much for me bc i played it in a time of my life when everything felt like it was falling apart but this game was just so sweet... it made me understand that i was just too inside of my head and that i needed to keep trying to get better even when everything around me feels like a movie and me the audience who can't interact with nor anyone nor anything. i also think this game would have impacted me even if i had played it in another moment of my life (although in a different form) bc it also helped me to appreciate more the silly little joys of life.

ig  i'm far from being okay but it just seems to be how life is when you grow up (don't listen to me, i'm really just a teenager who started being depressed since too early and now is just angry and depressed all the time), but even if now it's still hard to get out of the bed every day, this was what helped me to keep going for weeks by just making me feel the levity this game gives (when all i could feel for more than a year staying just at home (bc of a leg tendon problem) was physical pain, anguish, loneliness, but somehow, also numbness)

(this is not my first language, so sorry if something isn't understandable)

You should mention that this is also available on Steam! It is much easier to install through Steam.

(+4)

i will never get over this game

(+2)

Me too even if its finished i will always come back

(3 edits) (+2)

This game is just so amazing! The story line and the designs on these characters is just amazing plus all the DLC in this game is just ARGGGG This game is so good definitely my top 5 favorite games.  

(+1)

everytime I see Cove I'm like ekjfhhrsbfkbafbakbfhkbfkbjbHBHJBDHFB, I have an obsession and I'm NOT willing to get help I love Cove sm it's not even funny blud. This is my favorite game ever I forced my family into getting me the step 1, 2, 3, and wedding dlc BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. My next goal is to make my friend give me the Patreon, wish me luck pookie bears.

UR SO REAL FOR THIS ALSO GOOD LUCK!

Thank you thank you🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️
