Birthdays the Beginning

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Birthdays the Beginning is nostalgic and packed with charm, but it’s rather dull and plagued by clunky controls, poorly detailed graphics, and performance issues.

Game Info

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!

Birthdays the Beginning is about as exciting as watching paint dry – even if you get to pick the colors.

6/10

Despite the many obvious flaws there’s a mesmerising quality to the game’s artificial worlds, as the gameplay itself creates a surprisingly palatable form of edutainment.

Birthdays the Beginning is cute and nostalgic but there’s not much depth.
