You have 60 seconds to live a life 75 years. How will you spend your short time on earth? Will you strive for success, search for love, hang out with your friends or take time for your hobbies?

It's been a while since I submitted a game to NG, I hope you will enjoy this little something :)

----------

Edit: Yay, frontpage! Thank you NG!

Edit 2:

If the controls don't work at all, please click on the game screen first. An update that fixes this issue is on its way, but it needs to be approved by NG first.

Other than that - the arrow keys need to be held down. Once you get older, your avatar moves slower and the keys need to be held down for a little longer to make him move.

Button tapping pointless, keeping button pressed super effective.

I hope this clears some things up, I guess it wasn't as intuitive as I thought (sorry about that, i guess).

Pretty Fun

But is the 14 combo achievement bugged?.. I've gotten up to 25x.

Too simple.

Like many others have said, the concept is nice, but the gameplay needs much work. It's way too simple. However, something I did like were the messages that constantly came up. This does have potential, though. It needs more engaging gameplay. Also, I like the art on the icons.

Amazing!

"Love played an important part in your life. You would walk 500 miles and you would walk 500 more. Money was always a bit of a problem. But you got by fairly well. You had a handful of close friends and took care of these relationships. You were aware of the importance of your family. Your hobbies were a great way to relieve from your everyday life. You spent solid time on them, but not too much."
Thanks for this game. it's actually touching :)

Beautiful message.

Unfortunately, I can only describe why this is by pointing out the problems with the game.

For one, the failure-to-get-a-powerup-thingy messages were fairly depressing. Whenever I attempted to succeed at a single aspect of life, the game always made me feel like a jerk (whether it was the aforementioned failure message or the result message). Even when I tried to perfectly balance all the aspects, I managed to feel horrible. For me, the most jarring failure message was "Your family misses you."

Regarding a different aspect of the game (specifically the controls): They sucked. No matter how long I held down the left/right key, I just couldn't get the character to move. I had to continually abort and restart the game until I got lucky.

Gameplay-wise, the game was okay. My only complaint is that trying to balance all the aspects of life always results in a sub-par score and a disappointing result message.

However...

Your game made me realize the IMPORTANCE of balancing success, love, family and hobbies, as well as the unfortunate fact that life is short. For this, I give this game a 10 out of 10, a 5 out of 5, and a place on my Favorites.
