EVEN WITH CHOICES, LIFE REMAINS A GAME OF CHANCE
A game about world inequalities, discriminations, GMOs, pollution, children with guns, and more.

This game was made by me, Tim Krief, for the Lowrezjam2017. The constraints was to use a 64 by 64 resolution.

Here's my website, my youtube channel, my twitter.

cool game

(+1)(-1)

I like how this game of "chance" has purely preordained results to every choice. As an asian person, I can never get to the city by following the law? As an african I can never live the american dream, giving my children a better future by saving and allowing them to inherit my hard work? As a female I can never find happiness with my loving husband? This is a really great propaganda piece. You should definitely invest more time and money into making this a game, so that everyone can give you an overwhelming negative score on Steam.

Liked a lot the game, it is obviously very different from regular games and I appreciate it. I will always love the games that are loyal to the old days of gaming. The music and artstyle are the perfect combo to represent this. It is a little simple, maybe a little more illustration of the different ppaths you're going through would add up to it, but I still tink it's nice. Made a video about it if you're interested.

Good propaganda for being "tolerant"

I got all of the endings, I think. Thanks for making this <3  It would be cool if there was a trophy or gallery system to track if you've gotten all of the endings. I liked the diversity but it was a bit dark. 

Thank you for playing my game and good job in trying all possible ending. I am seriously thinking about making a full game out of this game jam experiment, and this feature would definitely be included.

is every ending a crappy one?

Why did you remove my comment?

DO NOT PLAY THIS! There are NO happy endings and there is a clear political message!

Fun game if you want to see the world through a young, naive European dude's eyes.

This is game changed who I was as a person, because it made me realize how lucky I am. The difficult decisions that I was forced to make reminded me that behind every situation is a story of what could have been. My only complaint is that it gets repetitive fairly quickly, and randomizing more than just skin color would help a lot.

(+2)(-3)

Whoever made this game is very naive about the world and is just reiterating whatever bullshit narrative they've listened to. Honestly, get your own actual opinions on things, don't just reiterate other peoples opinions that you've heard. Read books from every side of the political discourse and stop strawmaning and lying to yourself about the other side to make yourself feel better.  Grown up.

I laugh at the game, then I laugh even more at the comment. You guy triggered over a wall of text dude. let that sink in.

The music is very distracting

I don't understand it

I'm surprised how many people like and disliked this game. Someone said this game was "Political Propaganda Garbage."Like chill you all.     This person worked hard on this game and your dissing it because of you political opinion.                                                                       I liked it even though Most of the views didn't follow mine.
Thank you more making it, it was  very enjoyable.

You either love it or hate it.

Political garbage.

Agree fam

I want my 4 minutes back. Not a game, it's just a text simulator, with the author's political ideas.

(+2)

A game right up my alley, the choices provided are of circumstances that aren't mine, and it made me realize that when making a decision in a game where I have choice, I must put myself in the positions of the character, and not use my own ideas to change it too much.

I love this game! ^^

(+6)(-4)

Nothing more than political propaganda garbage.  A game it is not.

A game that touches upon real-world situations depending on the race of your choice

(+3)

this game is depressing..... i love it

(+2)

I thought the game I played was a good one because I died in a gender equality march and I was a martyr and it got laws passed.

(+2)

I really like the way my first life turned out but the game says I did it wrong. I was proud of that life, idc.

(+11)(-3)

This is not a game, it is a piece of propaganda designed to impress the creators own political views on people who play it. While the game design itself has a ton of potential until the author gets off his pulpit he is just going to alienate everyone who plays it based on his uninformed views of the world. 

(+3)(-2)

Agreed.

if it isn't a game then how you play it? -_- Edit: and the game has the word ,,game,, in the title

Game design is nice, from an artistic standpoint. However, the "moral" of the first story I got (the only one I played) was so heavy-handed and overbearing that I couldn't bring myself to play any others. Different strokes, I guess. Still, the game has a nice atmosphere aesthetically.

I played it so many times and try to get every ending but onle 1 out of 15 is succesful and I think I wont ever try to play it again

This game attempts to make social commentary about things it has no understanding of. In addition there is no gameplay to justify the bad commentary. 0/10

(+1)(-3)

The amount of blatant strawmen and lies in this game is just unbelievable. I wish I'd never even seen this game.

(+1)

This game made me feel as if my life does not matter

All i do is make the wrong choices and i die sadly :(

There's no way to succeed.

(+2)

Hello! I loved your game, it was very thought provoking in its simplicity and looked great! I made a let's play alongside another game here~

good and iner-asing game

(+2)

This is a really interesting game. 
 

How did you make the text so clear in 64 by 64 resolution?

This is an updated version with clear text. (The gamejam version's text wasn't that clear at all ^^)
