Continuity Error

While the concept of this game isn't new (only being able to play once) you have still managed to make this game unique enough that it doesn't feel like a clone. I like the story (even if it is a bit cliché) and there is definite emotion in the story.

However the one thing that fails to impress is the continuity; for a game which is 80% story it really needs to make sense (this could also be considered a bug) if you cheat on your wife and she leaves, the next day when the man attacks you (and you overpower him) you go home to find them murdered, despite them not being there.

I don't know whether this is down to laziness (reducing the number of story branches) or poor play testing, but it leaves a bad impression of what could have been a great little game.

I appreciate the message of this game (the balance between work and personal life) but it is ruined (for me) by bugs/continuity errors.

Extremely thoughtful

This is a game which makes you think, i gave you 10 for the meaning, and the re playability, because its meant to only be played once otherwise it'd take all meaning from it.

Although i spotted a few glitches.
1. I walked up to the guy committing suicide and then thought nah i don't wanna talk to him and walked back but just went offscreen.
2. When you wife leaves but the that guy who kills her and your daughter (could be explained with another car outside or a note?)
3. Your wife and child are dead but i then drove to work and the first frame your daughter is on your back

Once again good game, if kinda depressing
10/10 5/5

Very good

Nice game, I gave you 5/5 9/10 because this will be one of the best games on NG. Why I gave it 9/10? Because walking speed is a little slow, and the description is nasty a little. Depressive, but realistic: ever in situations like that one, there's a chance. Most people has to learn it.

I got the best ending. Keep up hope.

Not allowing someone to replay is bad.

Is kind of a game ruining thing to do. I know that is like real life, but at the very least it should have showed you what "could" have been or something. But no. I didn't spend time with my family at the end, and I didn't come up with the cure. So my guy died cold and alone. Wonderful, can I fix it? No. Because you don't have a replay feature to allow me to wonder what might have been. So I award you a four. Your game is incredible it really is, and the atmosphere it creates is so tense it is almost palpable, but the inability to replay or even see what might have been ruins this game. I almost smashed my keyboard in frustration at my crappy ending.
