I feel...

Like every choice i made was the wrong one. Would like to see the other endings and consequences of the other possibilities. Maybe one day there will be a One Chance redux with a replay option, for there is certainly replay value. Good game otherwise maybe make him walk a little faster?

I Respected My Choices

But I really wish I could turn back time and figure out where I went wrong... I don't understand and I can't appreciate your game to the fullest till I understand it. Then again I know my way around a computer so I CAN turn back time ^^

None the less I love this game.

P.S. In your face... =P

So what is this? The bajjillionth time?

This has been done like so many times.

"DERP U CAN ONLY PALY 1 TAIM DAM I AM SO CRAETIVE DURR HURR DIS HAS NVR BEN DUN B4"

Delete cookies. Incognito. The way you address it in your description even makes me more satisfied that there are such easy bypasses.

This "no-replay" thing, along with it being done SO many times, IT DOESN'T FUCKING FIT AT ALL IN THIS GAME (mind you, don't misunderstand me, if a game works with this element in, then by all means, leave it be).

You know what people do? They overcomplicate things, try to add so much depth to things. They try to...make things seems complex! or...deep! Right, cut the bullshit. I don't PLAY GAMES to think deeply about things, I fucking play video games to entertain myself. If I wanted to think deeply I'd read a poem.

This is a video game. People want to see everything, play the game's heart out, experience the fullness, I don't know how to word it. So if I want to replay this damn game to get all the endings, LET ME REPLAY IT.

Now, the way you think this concept is creative ('cause it's not) and how there's no replay button (which is stupid) aren't the only things making me mad.

This is a game with multiple endings, and events in the middle of it. Which adds good replay value...so naturally...you'd replay it. But this isn't FUN. First of all, is it just me, or do games like this make the main character walk reeaaallly reallly slow? Yeah, he walks like a fucking mile per hour. This pissed me off so much because that's like artificially extending the game. It made me feel like I was WASTING SO MUCH TIME.

And that's that. Pissed me off. Felt like I wasted time. I think you can tell that, for the most part, I did not enjoy this game. Let me tell you, players don't like to be frustrated.

So cool

I personally really like the idea of not having a replay button - in theory. It makes you feel like each action you make is impacting your final days, and you can't change or make up for your actions. If you made a mistake, you'll have to face the consequences.
However, I don't know effectively you executed this. Probably due to the fact that the player is never notified that they can't replay IN GAME. If you had put a notice at the beginning, that could really have really changed the player's view on the game, making them think carefully about each and every choice they make.
In all, the game is strong, despite your way of conveying the impact of each decision.
