From the legendary creator, Mr. Yasuhiro Wada (TOYBOX Inc.), comes Birthdays the Beginning: a new sandbox game in which players create cube-shaped worlds that give rise to diverse and unique lifeforms. With careful experimentation, players can shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and witness the birth of an entire ecosystem!
A World All Your Own - Create any world you can imagine! From staggering mountains and sprawling forests to a deep sea dotted with islands, there's no limit to your creations.
Life from the Beginning - Discover the history of everything as you foster life of all shapes and sizes - from single-celled organisms to complex multicellular life, including plants, mammals, dinosaurs, and more!
Cultivate Your Imagination - Imagine, Experiment, Create! Shape your planet and decide how plant and animal life evolves. No two planets will ever be truly alike.
Birthdays the Beginning was created by Yasuhiro Wada, known for making the Harvest Moon games, the focus is to alter the environment in order to create different life forms. You alter the environment by raising and lower the cubes that make up the world, placing things like water into the world. When you are done changing things you can zoom out and cause time to quickly pass, different kinds of life forms will appear based on how you altered the environment and its temperature. It can be fun to see what you create for a little while but the game is more suited for a younger audience as it doesn't offer much in the way of replay value or different things to do and it is too simple to really make anything too interesting or complex out of the game. It ends up being fairy light on features and modes and while it can be enjoyable there are other games that can fill most of the roles of this game and do a better job of it.
It looks like Minecraft is still going strong since we got Dragon Quest Builders, Lego Worlds this year and this game. What this game basically is it's minecraft gameplay wise with some Spore thrown into the mix - you build your own world and explore it at your own pace without any pressure or sense of urgency and you look for new species and how they grow. However, what differs it from minecraft and makes it stand out are the art direction and amazing, yet simplistic, graphics and beautiful soundtrack. The only thing bad is the performance on PC, which can get pretty random and controls, which sadly are not the best. Thankfully, those are the issues that can and probably will be fixed. Overall, if you miss Spore and have not enough Minecraft in your life, it is strongly recommended.
