Updates/bug fixes and level solution

Hi everyone, a few quick updates:

  • The "No Deaths" achievement no longer unlocks for Easy difficulty (since deaths aren't tracked for that difficulty mode)
  • The question marks in "Ignorance is Bliss" have been made a bit more straightforward to grab
  • A few people have mentioned that the solution for "Ignorance is Bliss" isn't very intuitive, since the momentum mechanic for green doors isn't explained beforehand, so I decided to record a solution for it: https://youtu.be/H212jKPeCWE

That's my bad for not making that more obvious.

Anyways, thanks everyone for playing and providing feedback -- much appreciated!

About This Game


Life Lessons is a difficult, humorous 2d platformer. The game centers around a fetus being taught about life by an overly-literal AI. Each level is a new "lesson" that the player is required to figure out in order to advance.

Examples: "Every dog has his day", "A picture is worth a thousand words", "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", etc. With each lesson, you're required to emulate what the lesson means, using whatever objects are available to you. Some levels require twitch reflexes and patience, while others don't require much of anything. Easy difficulty is recommended if you're easily frustrated.

The game also features a unique soundtrack, which is available to download for free.


  • 30 (?) challenging levels, each modeled after a different "lesson"
  • 3 different difficulty modes
  • A catchy, ear-tingling-ly good soundtrack
  • Bleeding edge fetus physics
  • Aggressively mediocre pixel art
  • S͞ecr͡e̡t҉͟͜ ̡end̛i҉̨n͢g͠
  • Hardcore mode for maximum punishment
