Overview

Our Life: Beginnings & Always v1.3.9 Beta + All DLC’s by GBPatch, Our Life: Beginnings & Always by GBPatch is adult game about 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…

There is one BG in Planning that’s entirely missing right now, not even a sketch is done, and so I just used the grocery store background as a placeholder.
And there you have it. Everybody worked hard to create this massive update before the end of the month. I hope you’ll enjoy the full first part of Baxter’s story. He’s certainly a unique figure in the world of Our Life: Beginnings & Always

REVIEW OVERVIEW
Super Lewd!
Previous articleLesson in Loyalty [Ch.3][Lesson in Loyalty]
Next articleRoommates [v1.3][ititnenon]
our-life-beginnings-always-gbpatchThis VN really captures the concept of romance pretty nicely. Even though the love they show is platonic the dialogues and the moments that we experience is seriously magical. This game is one i tend to play when i feel bad. Because this game perks you up. The Cove character is seriously well made. I strongly recommend this gem to anyone who wants to feel good.
