Lifelike: Chapter One is a light-touch simulation game where you interact with flocking particles to create a soothing and meditative experience. It's an exercise in attending to something playful and the pleasure and escape that come from this.

Swarm behaviour is one of the most aesthetically striking natural occurrences that can be observed on our planet. Experiencing this phenomenon in Lifelike lets the reality melt away. Drift in harmony with thousands of little creatures and enjoy Lifelike’s ambient colourful soundscapes.

Through a series of levels you lead these flocks to solve visual and geographical puzzles that invite exploration and experimentation while also guiding you forward.
