One Hour One Life is a survival game where death comes swiftly, even if you do everything right. You've got one hour before your character permanently dies and you spend your first ten minutes as a mostly helpless child. Your parents are other players. Hopefully, everyone collaborates to get through a huge crafting tree that represents all of human progress, from sticks and stones to iPhones. In creating the game, Jason Rohrer has had to confront some tough questions about social norms, gender and how his experience fits into it all.


Jason Rohrer, creator of experimental games like Passage and, most recently, a satanic gambling game that people have won as much as $US6000 ($8106) from, has a new project. It's a multiplayer survival game about living life in an hour. Also, other players are your parents, and you cooperate across generations to take civilisation from sticks and stones to iPhones. Warning: NSFW if your work disapproves of goofy cartoon nudity or magical poof cloud birthings.
