Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A little wonky, but...

It isn't often that a game can make me tear up. In fact, after 15 years of RABID gaming, I can't remember a single title that made me feel even a fraction of the emotion that welled up after I sat down on the bench in the park and closed my eyes. I was saddened by the fact that I had failed to save anyone (I only went to work twice). I also felt a stab of guilt when, after staring at the "Work" or "Park" screen for nearly ten minutes, I decided that Molly deserved one last day of fun before we both blinked out of existence forever.

It isn't often that the decisions we make in video games are as profound as this game's core concept. The idea that you only get ONE chance to live out the last six days you're alive, and the only way to get a SECOND chance is to play from an entirely different IP adress, is monumental. Like a kid who's ice cream scoop fell to the ground after a single lick, there was a feeling of emptyness in the pit of my stomach when I reached the final screen.

Although the game only lasted twenty minutes, it's taught me more than the entire Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Katamari and Halo franchises combined. It really got me to think about, not just the decisions we make as gamers, but the decisions we make as human fucking beings. Sometimes, you just SHOULDN'T get a second chance. And you may not like it. You may kick and scream and call for a replay button (okay, maybe not kick and scream), and in so doing you should realize the message that was conveyed. Life has no "Reset Button." There is no up up down down left right left right B A Start in real life. The thing that makes video games so enjoyable in the first place is exactly what makes them harmful. No, violent video games don't make you violent. Just because you saw pyramid head rape a dead body doen't mean teeming masses of gamers are suddenly going to become necrophiliacs. But they do put you in a mind set of "oh well, if I fuck this up now, I can always try again later." Then again, maybe I'm reading into this too much.

The Bottom Line: Video games aren't always about killing the next boss or beating your friend's high score. Sometimes, the conventions you're used to in a video game are thrown out the window in favor of teaching you a lesson, even if it's a lesson you don't want to be taught.

great game

My personal opinion is that it is great and deserves a 10/10 but i will give it a 5/10 because it has no damn replay button you cant even play it again if you refresh the page, and achievements should be added. Once the replay button gets added I will erase this comment and make another one with a 10/10 rating.

that was pathetic... are you serious only one play through, that is retarded "its called once chance I think I'm clever" oh well I guess I'll just wait until it gets hacked, maybe then i can have fun playing it.

seriously a no replay feature is simply retarded. makes this game completely not worth playing at all. If anyone else is reading this, don't waste your time. that all this was to me... I hate it.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

there`s something sad

by the time they say "there could be a cure" and you dont get it... it doesnt matter any more, cuz 50% of the planet is now dead
