Not enough variety.

For a game I will only be able to play once in my life (disregarding the possibility of deleting something to make it play again), it was very black and white. I had 2 or 3 choices every day (work or spend time with family) for six days and then the game was over. That's it. If I really only had 6 days left to live, I would think about doing way more shit than just work or hang with the fam. You need more choices and it would be 10x better if you could make more than one choice a day. The game was super short for only getting to play it once. I think this is how it feels for girls when they sleep with virgin guys who "finish" really early.

YOU MAD AUTHOR?

I looked up how to win, which is basically just keep selecting the work option when you can (real creative there by the way).

Also if you want to play again just right click the flash game and select settings, than switch the amount of storage space to 0 by sliding the slider all the way to the left. You can always change the storage settings back later, you know, when you play an actually enjoyable game.

P.S. Your wife kills herself in the bathtub if you don't stay with her. She was a hussy anyway.

Very pesimistic game

I worked everyday, I got the cure and everything but I can't tell if the the daughter is dead or just sleeping at the end. Either way, this game just has a very pessimistic point of view and I don't play games to be sad at the end of them.

I liked where you were going with the idea but I still say that a replay function should have been added. It only makes sense. People play games knowing that if t hey try hard enough they might eventually win. For the people who played and never got the cure, should be able to try again. Most games I know of are trial and error. So whats the point of playing if the game tells you "You lose. You, your family and the entire world is dead. Go away." when you make a mistake?

One Chance

Personally its OK art, not so good, and without a replay there is no chance of seeing the results of your other choices, however, this is designed to be based on real life. I believe you should spend time with family from the experience I had with it. All in all, I think that the game needs more work on the art portion, the story line is not very good but presents a very real possible threat in the distant future. Story line needed some patching and art needs some upgrading but other than that. You will get better in time if you keep working at it, and take your time next time if you rushed this one.

Great but Severely Flawed

A great game but with such a severe flaw that it makes it difficult to give this a high score. While the message and story of the game are amazing, it seems the author had to resort to a cheap trick like forbidding repeat plays to make the game feel more important, instead of letting the story stand for itself. It shows a lack of confidence in their own writing AND looks down on the player.

It's a shame.
With just a few alterations, this could have been a really great game.
