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).

This is what ludology is about!

Really, screw Dear Esther and the Path: when it comes to learning things through exciting gameplay, this is as close as I've seen people get so far. Granted, it's major flaw is an excruciatingly narrow view of what human life consists of and what the pursuit of those few things means for the constitution of a person. Then again, were this game more complex, I doubt that it would feel the same.

The gameplay in itself--the chasing, the aging, the ability to pull off the fleeting combo grabs--all of it focuses on the power of play over simple narratives of "you are [hero], fighting [enemy], here are your upgrades." In that way, it teaches us things that we almost never think about when engaging in second person gameplay.

And at least it wasn't another goddamned stick fighter flash.

Great game my ending note:" was You lived a good 60 Second Life. Sure, you missed out on a few things. Maybe the things you desired were always just out of reach. Maybe you were undecisive. Nothing to grieve about though.
Few people care as much about love like you did. And love had a lot to offer you. Money was always a bit of a problem. But you got by fairly well. Living a life of solitude, you had little to no friends. If by choice or misfortune, we'll never know. Hobbies, shmobbies. You obviously had better things to do in life. Maybe something else enriched your life more than any hobby ever could do."

Secret Medal

It's really quite easy, all you have to do is avoid all of the life points and get zero points.
Hope this helped :P
