I Was a Teenage Exocolonist is a narrative life sim with deckbuilding and time loop elements. It takes place over ten years as you grow up, again and again, to decide who you'll become and how you'll shape your colony's future.

It features a 600,000 word dynamic narrative, a minigame where every card is a memory from your life, a diverse variety of relationships and characters to love and/or hate, gorgeous watercolor style art, an ensemble electronic soundtrack, and more angst and catharsis than could fit into just one adolescence.
