What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is an Early Access product because it is currently a very small game, with a short playtime.
It is a completed small experience, but to better explore the concept I will need some time and some feedbacks.
This is why this is not a final release, as I'm still working everyday to make it better, smoother, more polished and meaningful.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be Early Access for the first 6 months of store presence.
Then, we will decide whether to release it as a full game as it is or with little differences or to improve radically the gameplay and overall story of the game, making it a full length experience.”

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

“Among the things we would like to get for our final release:

  • Full english voice acting.
  • Other languages support.
  • A longer story with more gameplay elements, such as:
  • Puzzle solving mechanics.
  • More cinematics moments.
  • More objects to use.
  • Online interaction (not real time) between players, who will be able to share and comment each other's stories and memories' songs.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The little starting experience is complete, you can play from the start to the ending credits.
You will be playing inside one bedroom only, with only 10 items to collect.”

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

“We're probably not going to raise the price when the final release is happening.
You will get access to every version of the game at the same price here on the store.”

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

“We hope our community of players will take some time to leave a comment, a hint, or even propose as collaborators for our projects.
We will listen to everyone, and we will be happy to reply and have a good and profitable communication.”

About This Game

Vinylove is a small exploration game experience about the deep relationship between the songs we love and the memories they relate to.
You will follow the short story of Alex, the protagonist, while he's dealing with his past and the impact songs and music had on it.
As you proceed with the experience, you will be asked to put on specific records to help Alex understand and finally cope with his own memories.

The entire story takes place in Alex's bedroom, filled with his passions and hobbies and stuff from his childhood. You will find a lot of details about his life by just looking at his stuff, while you're busy collecting the right song with each memory.

You will be creating the soundtrack for this experience by selecting and playing your favourite songs by your favourite artists! It's easy, all it takes is to open your records library and select the song from your computer. This will allow you to live Alex's story togheter with yours: an invite to think about this magic connection between music and past in your everyday life!

What you'll find:


  • A small but detailed story about the ordinary life of a teenager.
  • Warm and relaxing atmosphere inside Alex's bedroom.
  • Detailed handcrafted environment.
  • Calm and relaxing guitar soundtrack.
  • Customized game experience by loading your own music.

A starting point


Vinylove is not finished yet. In fact, it is born as an experimental game to explore this concept of the links between music and memories.
It could be turned into a full-size story, always around that same concept.
This is all up to you, the players. If you will like the game and will support it with gameplays, hints, comments and everything else, I might be able to turn it into a full polished experience!
