Birthdays the Beginning first English screenshots

Play the sandbox game at MCM London Comic-Con this weekend.

Birthdays the Beginning

NIS America has released the first English screenshots of Birthdays the Beginning, its upcoming sandbox game from the creator of Harvest Moon / Bokujou Monogatari.

As previously detailed, Birthdays the Beginning lets players create cube-shaped worlds that give birth to diverse and unique lifeforms. Through careful experimentation, players can shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and bring about the birth of an ecosystem.

If you’ll be attending MCM London Comic-Con this weekend, Birthdays the Beginning will be playable at the NIS America booth. NIS America will also host a “Building a Dinosaur Workshop” on Friday from 3:00 to 3:45 p.m., Saturday from 4:00 to 4:45 p.m., and Sunday from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m., where its staff will teach you how to build a dinosaur out of a specialized clay used by the famous Japanese clay-artist Ochappi. You’ll be able to take your creation home with you.

Birthdays the Beginning is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in North America and Europe in early 2017.
