Scientist John Pilgrim and his team have accidently created a pathogen that is killing all living cells on Earth.

In the last 6 remaining in-game days on Earth, the player must make choices about how to spend his last moments. Will he spend time with his family, work on a cure or go nuts?

more than once?

I know how to play it more than once :) but to be respectful to the authors wishes im not gonna tell anyone. some may figure it out but to those who cant tough luck! very eye opening game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It is overall a great game.

The first time I played it I had no idea there was no reset button also I had no idea what I was doing so the first I had a choice to skip work I did it.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I'm a sucker

I honestly was very sad. Every time someone asked me to skip work I'd say no. Every time I had the choice to take her to the park, I went to work. It was a beautiful game and I loved it.

This game is truly art

The simply graphic style similar to NES are surreal and fit perfectly to the game. The whole one chance thing is a great concept. I'm not sure if it why it placed in the game but I like to interpret it as a social statement about the decisions that people make in video games and how little consequence they have due to the replay options. Though it likely has little to do with it.

I actually did play this game twice (actually 4 times to see the different outcomes). I'm glad I did because my original death sold the game short quite a little due to it being very dull in terms of what happened. When I played some of the other paths they were a lot more "eventful" I guess might be the word I'm looking for. That being said I still am haunted by my original game that is saved here on newgrounds where I did a mixture between the two choices and in the end achieved neither so even though I admit I might have not experienced the true art of the game to the fullest I think I have experienced it in at least some form. I have two small criticisms of this game. Firstly not enough choices to make me feel like I'm playing a game. And secondly and more importantly the story is way too exaggerated and blatantly trying too hard to hard that it loses all subtly in the Armageddon and too a degree the ability to be taken seriously. However despite the flaws I don't measure this game compared to others since to me anyway it seems to be attempting something different. There's a good chance I've taken the whole one chance thing out of context and given it some meaning the author never intended but my interpretation of this game is a piece of art and a meaningful one at that so I have to give it a 10 for the many elements that make it memorable and compelling.
