Newlife 0.4.1

Hello everyone!

Version 0.4.1 of Newlife is finished and I've released it on Patreon. Early-access Patrons can find it in the creations section here. The changelog is below.

The previous version is now public. You can download it using the links on the right-hand side of the blog. The public version's changelog is here.

As usual, saved files & templates from older versions probably won't work with newer ones. 

For new players - just use one of the links to the right to get a zipfile containing Newlife. Once unzipped, you'll see a folder containing .jar and .exe files. Either one of these will run the game. 

For either version you'll need to have Java installed. A lot of programs use Java so you might well already have it. If the jar shows up as an unrecognised file type, then you probably don't. In that case you can get it from
The exe should tell you if you don't have the right version on your computer, but you'll still need to install java to run the game.
There's a guide for new players here which includes some troubleshooting tips for installation & downloading.

This version adds clothing items to the legwear slot. The PMW release (with anal sex) will be the next one: 0.4.2.

Here's the full changelog for this version:

Major changes & additions:
  • Added a breakup option under the “important talk” action at home. This is only available towards your boyfriend (obviously), and not if you're in love with him.
  • Added legwear clothing items.
Minor changes & bugfixes:
  • Fixes to text issues. Thanks to Kaspar, Cubano, Wasda, NotYou, Mercurial Bat, OrangeJuice and Starglider for reporting problems they found. Possibly some others too - there were a lot of text fixes and I might have forgotten to credit some people.
  • Added some legwear-specific NPC actions to a few existing scenes.
Enjoy the new version, and let me know if you find any bugs! 


  1. Holy cow! Legwear AND break-ups... and with anal coming next! Great to see the long-awaited features showing up. Great job :)

  2. Я только в понедельник написал, что обуви нет. Пришлось обзор править. Хорошая работа, так держать!

  3. Looks like I renewed my patronage at the right time.

  4. Is the break up system goes the other way around as well?? which mean the boyfriend will break up with PC if the PC lets say caught red handed for having an affair with another man or maybe pregnant with someone else baby??

    1. The second one is already possible, the first isn't. Relationships update we 'ave to wait.

  5. I've noticed that you don't have to have enough money to buy the pill or get the checkup (your "savings" goes negative), but you do have to have enough money if you want to buy condoms or get the fertility treatment.

    1. Yes, I think there was a reason for writing it that way although I can't at the moment remember what it was...

    2. I believe it had to do with making sure the player always has the options to not get pregnant until a "barren" or similar trait is introduced.

      As for check ups, is that based on reality? This one seems a bit odd to me.

    3. That's probably the reason. In reality GP visits are free on the NHS, as is the pill.
      I think I made the checkup cost money to highlight how bad Newlife's fictional future-British government is supposed to be.
