Free Couples Update For ‘Haven’ Adds Same Gender Options


Back in February 2021 Haven arrived from The Game Bakers, a stylish game that’s best played in co-op. It’s ultimately a love story about a couple, with their relationship evolving amongst all the resource gathering and rhythm-puzzle combat; we quite liked it in our Haven review.

The development team has now released a ‘Couples Update’ for free on all platforms (including Switch), which allows players to choose same-gendered options. You can play with the original Yu and Kay, or options with two women or two men, with adjustments to the characters for each option. The gameplay and story remain the same, so it simply offers alternative options for the starring couple.

It seems that multiple characters and couples were part of the original plan, but as the development team had to prioritise in production some ideas had to be put on hold.

This update is special to us. Originally, the concept for Haven featured 8 couples, with a diverse range of relationships. It became clear during production that we wouldn’t be able to reach our initial vision for the full cast of characters, so we focused on the two characters you know well. But right after the game launch, we went back to work on this update to add the alternate couples!

Let us know in the comments if you’re a fan of Haven, or perhaps interested in another playthrough following the update.
