We're funded!
After the first day of the campaign Our Life was fully funded and reached the first stretch goal! Thank you all so much for the incredible support. We couldn't be more thrilled.

@fskfx
Thanks very much ^^! It's so kind of you to say all that. We'll do our best to make the finished version worth the wait <3.

Wow! Congratulations! You're already at two stretch goals in less than two days! :D

Out of interest, will the Protagonist Expansion include multiple hair colours (e.g. highlights or tips; I know you can already have different colours for the front and back)? Don't worry if not; I realise that that would be a lot more work than most other options. :)

Good luck with the rest of the stretch goals!

@ParrotWatcher
Thank you very much for the congrats ^^! I'm afraid we can't add highlights or tips. It wouldn't work out with the way the hair pieces are done. I'm sorry for that. We will try to come up with more ways to personalize the hair, though.

Ah, that's fine. As I said, I assumed it would be unlikely. :)

Also, I really like the idea of a Wedding DLC, as you mentioned on Kickstarter. Hopefully you can keep momentum going until you can add that. :)

@ParrotWatcher

Thank you for understanding! And it looks like we will be adding the wedding DLC as the next stretch goal. I hope we reach it, too.

Hello, I just finished playing the demo, and I must say it created very warm feelings in my heart (especially towards Cove!).
The entire setting of the game is really unique, and it definitely managed to pull me in. I love all the characters and the features of the game are really appealing too.
It was overall a very pleasurable experience, and I look forward to the finished game :D

@Unicorn_Magic
Aw, thank you so much! I'm really happy it gave you some pleasant feelings <3.



As an update, we reached our fourth stretch goal on Kickstarter! That means once the original Our Life is done we're going to make a second game with the unique features of OL but new characters, a new setting, etc. That's so exciting. And now everyone who backs the Kickstarter will get to vote on major decisions for the second game :D, such as the whether it's modern day again or historical fantasy or something else.

Sorry, another appearance question: Would there be piercings available -- for both Cove and the MC -- and if so, would it just be simple ear-rings, or would other options be available (like lip or eyebrow piercings)? Also, though I'm less interested in this personally and more just curious, would tattoos be available?

Thanks. :)

@ParrotWatcher
The MC can have earrings and nose piercings. Not sure about lip or brow because of how much the face can change on the relationship screen. The layers may not lie right. Cove can have earrings in Step 3 and/or Step 4, but no other type of piercings. Tattoos aren't an option for the MC. We kind of want Cove to have tattoo possibilities in Step 4, since tattoos are kind of a thing for his family. But we haven't been able to settle on what tattoos he might realistically get. So it's a maybe on him for now, aha.

Definitely intrigued on the range of customization for Cove, it seems like a big project and congrats on being funded! Good luck!

Congratulations on hitting the Wedding DLC stretch goal! :D

I was just wondering, will Derek and Baxter have alternate outfits, too? (e.g. pyjamas, formal wear, etc; I realise the "custom" outfits are going to be Cove-specific.)

@ParrotWatcher

Thank you! Right now they don't have alt outfits, but once we really start working on their storylines we'll be able to see what other looks they might need :)

We’re in the final 48-Hours of the Our Life campaign ★

And there’s one stretch goal remaining. We’re so close to the end now. If you’ve been interested in Our Life: Beginnings & Always, please feel free to give the Kickstarter a look.

LINK: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gb ... sual-novel

We’ve shown Cove in Steps 1, 2, and 3. Step 4 Cove is mostly going to be a mystery until OL actually releases. But we will include images of him in the backer-only Kickstarter updates.
