Under rating threshold (show) I do like this, it was good stuff. Unfortunately, where the "story" is interesting it also disappoints me. What I liked about One Chance was that the player actions felt meaningful. If One Chance was only holding right and pressing space to work for 6 days straight, it would not have been good. I think that the best "art games" make the player part of the story, rather than dictating their actions to them, even if the result doesn't change much (like the game Immortall). This game would have been better to simply watch and not interact with at all, which shows how much this isn't a "game" exactly. I hope this doesn't spoil too much, but I love how the ending allows the player to "choose" how the man reacted to the events. The ending was tragic either way, but when I saw the choices I instantly thought "Oh no... I don't wanna do that... or that... but I kinda have to."

Under rating threshold (show) Would've been better as a movie, as the "gameplay" almost entirely consisted of holding down the left arrow key. Still, very emotional and clearly very meaningful to the creator.

Under rating threshold (show) Why did he kill his wife? Maybe you could add that and other endings. But other than that I notice you do incredibly sad games with no chance of happiness. ex. in one chance you can spend every day with your wife and get killed or have them killed or you can spend every day at work and your wife commits suicide and your daughter dies but you save the day. Why?

Under rating threshold (show) I love it, a great art based game, and I think that it's really creative, this may have been meaningful to the creator, but it's not up to us to judge such things. Enjoy the game, or don't enjoy it, either way the creativeness of it is good. Using colour for the flashbacks is pretty awesome, and that last decision at the end. ;~; So sad. :( Yeah this probably could have been better as a movie, or slightly more interactive, but I don't care, I enjoyed it, and that's all that matters to me . :3

Under rating threshold (show) There are many who write that this "game" would be better as a movie - I believe that it is actually meaningful that you carry the bag yourself, dig the hole yourself and kill the wife yourself, because doing the inevitable eventhough you don't really want to (I hope you didnt kill the girl with joy) gives the game a deeper meaning - at least I felt that way. I would have liked to see the oder endings aswell, but... I couldn't bear to play this heavy game again.

Under rating threshold (show) I think the preference for making this a game and not a movie is that this way you get: a) the "first person" perspective, since you're the one doing the action, and not just watching it happen; b) the chance to listen to the whole song while you play (that's also one of the reasons why I think the character moves slowly, there is both the chance of getting more involved with the art (because you have more time to absorb it), and the "numbness" feeling that you get when you're deeply depressed... It's like your perception of time has completely changed, making hours seems like days of loneliness and sorrow).

Under rating threshold (show) Not really a whole lot going on here....very odd. But I mistakenly found 2 (3?) implied endings: 1) As soon as you walk in the cabin and walk right back out the game ends (surrender) 2) You can come out with the gun (blaze o' glory) 3) You can commit suicide.

Under rating threshold (show) Truly beautiful. Maybe a little more interaction or speed would be better, but that's just my taste. Thumbnail's really awesome, it pretty much made me play this. Now I can't say the story is that original, because many games use this kind of super sad plots to give the illusion of deepness, but it's so greatly told. I specially loved the part when the guy gets caught, and also the walk-in-the-park like part, because there's a cool thing going on between the past and the present, and how the character understands them and relates them. I got two endings, don't know if there's more.

Under rating threshold (show) My take on this game is this. First, hes aloner, then he meets a woman who is special to him, but she edventually leaves, being upset (and slighty crazy), he kills her. He is then addicted to the "rush" of killing people and kills more people-the more graves- then he remembers the first woman, and realizes how wrong he was, and chooses to end his life.

Under rating threshold (show) There seem to be lots of people who are looking for simple, entertaining games and instantly give one star to any "game" that tries to be something else. That's why kongregate should have own section for interactive art. + if you agree.

Under rating threshold (show) Absolutely beautiful and haunting. Loved the colour trick at the right side of the screen. Very subtle, yet makes it very clear what is happening. A bit short and "slow", but definitely worth playing.
