We'd also love it if you'd give the game a rating. It really helps the project be seen.

But no matter what, this has been a long time coming and we thank you all for the feedback, patience, and support. We hope your life in Sunset Bird will be everything you imagined it’d be ☀


Our Life: Beginnings & Always is a feel-good simulation, as well as a “feel-better” one, where painful emotions such as sadness, anger, stress, and worry can all be expressed, then met with reassurance, understanding, and support.

It’s a wholesome experience that faces large steppingstones of life, while having a focus on familiar everyday moments. With notable amounts of customization for even tiny details, you can enjoy pleasures as simple as having a preferred type of drink and a neighbor who cares enough to remember what it is.

  • 3 different periods of life to experience: childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood
  • Name, appearance, personality, and pronoun (he, she, or they) customization for your character
  • Change your character's details however you like as you grow, including transitioning to new pronouns
  • Shape your personality, feelings, and preferences, then see them reflected in the story as characters remember who you are
  • 1 love interest, Cove Holden, whose personality, interests, and appearance will develop in a custom way over the years based on his experiences with you
  • Decide for yourself how quickly or slowly the relationship with Cove develops by setting a unique dynamic; from love at first sight to last minute confessions to always being friends and more
  • A welcoming, sentimental story that can easily be enjoyed over and over using new main character qualities or different connection types with Cove
  • 320,000 words, 15-20 hours of content in total


Jamie Last (changeable name) has spent the last couple weeks on a summertime high. At eight-years-old, nothing is better than what feels like endless days of school-less adventures, especially when you live walking distance from the beach. While coming home under a scorching sunset one fine evening, Jamie is approached by a stranger. The man is looking for a kid who can do him a favor, and he’s even offering to pay for it. He wants Jamie to please be friends with his only child. The person is Mr. Holden, Jamie’s new neighbor, as well as the father of the odd, and oddly named boy, Cove. Whether Jamie wants to play along or not, Cove isn’t going anywhere. He's present in Jamie's life for far longer than they ever would've guessed.

And then the long days of vacation finally come to an end. Summer may not be able to last forever, but Jamie can take comfort in knowing it will come back again someday…

This is absolutely the best wholesome game ever. It's so sweet and if everybody grew up like they did, the whole world would be a better place. I like that you can adjust everything about yourself in this game, I just can't for the love of me be mean to Cove, he deserves the world and the best happy ending with your MC. The DLC's are also the best because more time with Cove, I mean that's a no-brainer! Plus I want to support you guys! I can't wait for Step 4 ;) Keep up the good work. 

omg omg I have just finished this game and I LOVE IT! It was such a wholesome game with so sweet moments with Cove and I couldn't stop squealing over them (MC and Cove <3). With those sweet memories, the game also has a very realistic view of life that is honestly v bittersweet (I teared up fr). The developers have really done well with the story, illustrations and sounds! All the game's features have truly made the experience. I'm super hyped for the epilogue to come out!! (No rush though!) Highly recommended game! Hope all of you enjoy 💜💜
