What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a one-person studio, tackling such a large project such as Hokko Life takes a lot of time. Filling the game with enough exciting items to unlock and collect; a good amount of amusing and interesting dialogue; as well as adding depth to the different gameplay features is a big undertaking. By bringing the game to Early Access first I can continue to develop and improve the game, along with the support and input from the community. During Early Access I will be getting you involved to help shape the world of Hokko, delivering updates and improvements over the coming months.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access period exists to expand on the base game and turn Hokko Life into a well rounded package for full release. Hokko Life will continue to be in Early Access until it is deemed to be a complete and solid experience, and one that the community enjoys.

At this point it is very hard to give exact timings; though I will be focussing on development with the tentative aim to release the final game Q1-Q2 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The following improvements are currently intended for the full release:
  • Expanded clothing, avatar styles and wearable items
  • A wider selection of pieces for use in furniture and item designs
  • More brushes and paints for designing clothing and other patterns
  • Larger department store with additional sections for other player creations
  • Deeper fishing and gardening experience
  • Expanded season features
  • Town events
  • Additional dialogue
  • Balanced unlocks and prices

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The focus of the Early Access game has been to deliver a solid core experience for players, which may be rough around the edges, unbalanced, and not as full as content as intended.

All base gameplay, a collection of content and items for players to purchase and unlock, a starting selection of villagers to befriend, and all the tools needed to design, decorate and expand your town exists in the game's current state.

A first pass of balancing has been performed, prices and unlock stages can be a little unbalanced in its present state. The introduction to the game and tutorial is in its early stages.

Each version of the game is tested prior to release on Steam, although due to its in-development nature you are likely to come across bugs and other issues.

Sharing designs through the mailbox and the department store is in its first implementation, and can be unstable.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For the early adopters and keen designers out there, Hokko Life will be offered at an initial, reduced price while in Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community will be kept up-to-date continuously throughout development.

The Discord server (link below) will act as a hub for all players, and will host competitions, polls and discussions on the current and future development plans for the game.

A big part of Hokko Life is the freedom to be yourself, and express your creativity through your own designs; by involving players in the development it is my intention to build an experience that is open and welcoming for everyone.”

About This Game

Hokko Life is a cosy, creativity filled community sim game.


Step off the train into the town of Hokko and get settled into your new home!

This quiet village needs your help to turn it into the charming rural town everyone loves. With hammer and paints in hand it's up to you to design, build and decorate homes for all of your new friends!




Busy yourself away in the dusty old workshop and let your creativity flow!

Craft materials and combine them in whatever way you desire to create new and wonderful furniture and items for your town. Collect flowers, mix paints and use them to design wallpapers, flooring and even clothing!

Will you design an urban-industrial furniture collection or maybe a bright flowery wallpaper set? With all of the workshop at your disposal, you'll have complete freedom to design a town your villagers will absolutely love.


🔨 CRAFT: Head to the forest or the abandoned mine to chop mine, and dig for resources. Take what you've collected back to town and craft them into materials you can use in your own designs.



📐 DESIGN: Gather your materials and head into the workshop to put your own spin on every item in the game. Use the design table to build your own furniture, combining different shapes and materials in a simple but powerful editor.



🎨 PAINT: Pop on your overall, get out those brushes and throw some colour down. You can design wallpaper, flooring and even T-Shirts for you and the villagers to wear. Get everyone in town wearing your own unique designs!



🏠 BUILD: Enlist the help of the resident builder and start expanding the town. Place buildings wherever you like and get them ready for new villagers to move in.



📦 DECORATE: Customize the interior and exterior of any home, choose designs and place furniture to make a home your new friends will love.



🎣 FISH: Spend a quiet morning at the various fishing spots around the world of Hokko and build your fishing collection. Fish have unique habits, so you'll need to vary your approach, with each catch providing it's own challenge when you reel in.



🦋 BUG HUNT: Fluttering and scuttling about the world of Hokko you'll find a whole range of insects for you to catch and build your collection with. Keep an eye out, you never know what might be hiding in that bush!
