Shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and witness the birth of an entire ecosystem!

Originally released on the PS4 and PC (Steam) entitled Birthdays the Beginning, Happy Birthdays will contain the same elements, but with updated UI and game elements.


The free demo is now available for download on Nintendo Switch eShop. Shape the land, grow your own critters, and look forward to what evolution has in store!

Key Features:

  • A World All Your Own And On-The-Go! – 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. And now, you can shape your world on-the-go on the Nintendo Switch!
  • Life from the Beginning – Discover the history of everything as you foster life of all shapes and sizes – from single-celled organisms to complex multi-cellular 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.
  • Switch Exclusive content:
    • New Gameplay: In-game items have been replaced with a skill system that rewards and encourages shaping the world and capturing creatures. Performing these actions will generate stars, which players can use to activate skills that affect the terrain, temperature, moisture levels, and more!
    • Exclusive Creatures: Gaea Drakonis, Ouranos Drakonis, and Hydor Drakonis are three mighty (adorable) elemental dragons that only appear when conditions in your world are just right!
    • Monuments: Stars generated through gameplay can also be spent to place Monuments—cosmetic decorations that were DLC in the original game. More Monuments become available to the player as they fulfill certain in-game achievements.
    • New Starting Biomes: When starting a new game, players can now choose from a lush grassland, a bone-dry desert, or a frozen tundra as their starting world. Each of these biomes have separate completion objectives based on their environment.

Happy Birthdays will contain in-game text in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, and Japanese.

Happy Birthdays is arriving on Nintendo Switch June 5, 2018 in North America and June 8, 2018 in Europe!
