This is the simple story of a man who desperatly wished he could do everything he wanted before his death.

WARNING: the game stops automatically by fading out after after a few number of turns, because... well... game jam.

First time I’m doing a game jam alone. As a beginner, it was quite a challenge and I’m glad with what I accomplished, even a lot of things were left in a rudimentary state.

Everything, including code, graphics, and music was entirely made during this jam.

I like this game. It expresses that even if you rush to do everything, you cannot. The gameplay isn't amazing but that isn't the point. Love it... of course i would like it a bit longer. And as others have said a sign of why the world fades out. That's all.

This is a really well made game, I love the music and the art style. It really has a deep meaning to it. Props to the creator, it was a great game.

I always reach a point at stage 4 or 5 where I just fade out, even if there are things to go to. I guess that might be a comment on the things we have time for in life, but some prompts would have really helped cement the point - otherwise, it's hard to tell if the game is just having a glitch. That said, there's an okay concept here, and the art of death really does the job for me. Good job.

Sadly, that's life for you...

An Incredibly short entry even for a gamejam, Lackluster Gameplay, Mediocre storyline which has been done before and arguably better.

Thanks for your honesty, I really appreciate it. I made the conscious choice to spend most of my time on the atmosphere because that's where I wanted to improve myself, and yeah, I know that will be frustrating for some people. Your criticisms sounds fair, even if I don't think anyone here deserves a 0.
