A depressing exercise in choice that could be easily realized by examining your own life. Could working all the time save the world? If so, is that the most important thing? Is it better to spend six days with your family and die with them or six days without your family and live? Or should we avoid the conflict of choice altogether and go mad?

Ultimately I found this game disturbing, sad, and depressing. There are probably plenty of people who give this game good marks because it is "artistic", but try to remember that the definition of a game's quality is in its play, not in its message or presentation. In that regard, this is a fairly terrible game-it isn't fun or even enjoyable to play, it ultimately makes me sad. As an artistic message, A+, but as a game, D- at best. I most certainly wouldn't recommend this to my friends, only because they'd think I was a jerk for exposing them to something so overtly depressing.
