Wow.

Since I didn't know whether to give this game a 0 or a 10, I decided to split the difference.

Positives: This game will genuinely makes you think about what choices you would make if you knew the end was near. It sucks you in to very simplistic characters and creates a wealth of emotion in a short period of time. I admire the concept of one and only one chance, I think it's innovative and a breath of fresh air in comparison to the usual "die and try 5000 more times" type of game.

Cons: Simply put, this game is depressing. I lost sleep over it. Don't picture your loved ones when you play, or it will hit you somewhere you don't want to be hit. The particular element I'm referring to is having to look at your wife's blood-soaked corpse lying on the ground, only to open the door to your daughter's room and see a pool of blood lying near her bed. Then, having to bury the only two people in the world you love with your own hands.

This game redefines the unrealistic nature of die 9000 times until you get what you want, which I think is great because in real life, you only have one chance. The game's merits, however, don't outweigh its insanely depressing themes. It may just be me, but I like happy endings.

(P.S. There is a way to replay the game, however, out of respect to the author, I won't reveal it here.)

Near perfection, far from Golden.

My emotions is mixed here because on one hand, it was good. I got the ending that I wanted, and everyone is fine. I thought it was perfect till i refreshed the page, and went "huh."

It wasn't so much as "Oh i screwed up, can I try again?" It's more, "Here, I made a game, but you only see one ending." That's good that you made more endings...but there's no reason as to why we can't see the other endings as well...

Would've been 9/10 if it had the choices to see other endings.
