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).

One Life...
What shall the purpose be?
Make your own meaning.
Make your own decisions.
It's YOUR life, some people have bad ones, most have good ones.
On a scale on 1-10, my life's a 7.
But in this it's a -1 :P
I enjoyed this but don't you know what you could add to this? The art is a bit sloppy. But at least you put in the main purposes of life.

Wasted concept

I really, really wish the "choices" made in this game had more of a stylistic impact. Why not change the appearance of the man depending on if he prodominantly chose love, hobbies, money etc? Why not change his surroundings or the people/amount of people he's with, too? Why not add some kind of neat passing day and night cycle? I'm sorry but having sentences flash up on the screen such as "Your family misses you" just doesn't make enough impact.

There's so little here that it's hard on what I should even be judging. The only real replay value is in the final messages you see at the end, which would have been a lot more interesting with a more visual accompaniment. Nothing is changed and nothing is different when you die, so all the messages feel pointless. Unless this is some kind of commentary on how everyone ends up the same when they're dead or something like that.

Also, another interesting thing is that I got about 600 more points when I just focussed on getting money, and the message seemed to imply I'd had a more satisfying life, than on my first play through where I attempted to get everything. Strange, though maybe it's cos I just played better the 2nd time?

In summary: it was moderately interesting but it's not something I can ever see myself replaying or revisiting.

nice but it needs a new version

its hard to get everything to 1400 in a single try, the music is lame, why is it not getting dark (night)? the textes are disapointing and in the view, thats bad, i want not to see any repeating textes while im playing. sure, life is short, but only sixty seconds?
