Relive Your Life
Though one should strive to live without regrets, considering all the different paths a life might have taken is an inherently intriguing concept. What if I went to a different school? What if I had caught that train that I missed? What if I chose chocolate instead of vanilla at the ice cream parlor? Some games, like Alter Ego, attempt to analyze the psychology of our decisions and their consequences. By contrast, others like Relive Your Life, an interactive movie by FrozenFire, will start by fending off a competing sperm, before failing to acquire a preferred toy at recess kicks off a chain of events that leads to a nation-wide resurgence in nude bear-wrestling. And it'll rhyme too!
In each "stage" of Relive Your Life, the narrator will describe your status before transitioning to a decision or simple keyboard-based Quick Time Event minigame. Depending on your choices or minigame success, your life will evolve in different directions, eventually leading to one of twenty-nine different endings. Relive Your Life is a uniquely surreal and amusing experience with a nicely expressive stick-figure aesthetic. One can't help but think that Relive Your Life would be a stronger work if it was presented in a pure "choose your own adventure" style, rather than including the somewhat-forced minigames. Still, on the strength of the prose and Egoraptor's top-notch voice-acting, you'll want to Relive Your Life time and time again.
