Been there, done that.

As mentioned on other sites, this idea and concept has been done before, and I'm fairly certain more than once. As an artistic expression and installation, it's a wonderful and thought provoking idea. As an interactive experience, it does pose some questions. As a game, it sucks.

Games are about learning and about fun as much as they are about story. The one chance concept is the primary point of this game. I spent days considering -if- I should play it. I did. I was bitterly disappointed. Once again, a game provides you with only two, or three options on what to do at a given juncture, except this time the choice you have is the only one you will ever see, honestly making the options irrelevant.

That's right. It doesn't matter what you choose because you're stuck with it. You can do what you like without impunity because there are no 'right' or 'wrong' choices. There is no 'winning' to this game. This doesn't mean that the endings are unsatisfactory, or that they are all negative, only that there -is- no point in playing this game.

It does not even tell a good story. It's the same old tripe, passed along as 'innovation.' It's not innovative. It's gimmicky, and a poor gimmick at that.

I won! ... I think.

... except my wife and all my friends and pretty much everything and everyone else is dead. But hey! Nice fun happy park times! This game has made me feel that I would be an awful husband.

I'll give it an eight, because I wanted to throw myself off the roof the second I found out there was a roof. But that was not an available option.

Reality bites.

In general, people play video games to escape from reality, but this game doesn't let you do that. This game forces you to FACE reality. In real life, there are no second chances. One shot is all you've got. I, for one, applaud the author for this. The lack of a replay feature is NOT a prank, folks. It's an artistic statement about life. If you pay attention, this game might just make you learn something about yourself.

If you want to WIN, there is only one way; Have no regrets about how you spent your one chance. That's as true of this game as it is of human existance. That's reality. Deal with it.

I love this game.

This game made me think of how sad it would be if this were to actually happen. It also gives me the feeling of loneliness. Any game that you can get that far into deserves a 10\10. Most people give low ratings for not reading the description before playing or reviewing.
Damn those stupid people....

In all honesty

I want a replay button just so I can see if maybe, just maybe, I can save everyone. See if maybe I could make a diffrence, but the fact that you didnt put in a reset button makes this game number 1 on my top 100 flash games. The fact that the choices that you made in game will forever stay there really convey the fact that (as DenimDan said before) life has no reset button, the choices you make cant be changed, and what you do is never going to go away. An absolutely beautiful game that I will play off of diffrent computers again, and again, and again. Thank you for the lesson on life, nobody could have conveyed it more clearly.
