One Hour One Life (http://onehouronelife.com
) is a fun, complex strategy game in which you have one hour to play one life. This game is mainly about Families. If you aren't ?spawned' into the server as an Eve, then a mother, who is another player in the same server, will birth you and MAY take care of you as a baby. If you are a male child, then you can work your whole life unobstructed by the demands of motherhood. On the other hand, as a female child, the countdown to motherhood has begun and you may be responsible for your very own baby. You can name your children and watch your lineage grow for generations. You can even follow the lineage to see how it died out: http://lineage.oneho...ion=front_page.
Either way, you were part of that.
One Hour One Life (OHOL) isn't just a game. It shows you ?you' in a raw form. Social, gender, psychological and historical themes are just a few of the many ?foods-for-thought' OHOL provides players and viewers. Other Twitch streamers as well as viewers compare it to a game called Don't Starve Together, which I have never played, so ¯ _(?)_/¯ there's that.
Here's a brief overview of an OHOL life from its developer, Jason Rohrer, himself: ?I built a bakery near the wheat fields. Over time, I watched my grandparents and parents grow old and die. I had some kids of my own along the way, but they are grown now... and look at myacter now! She's an old woman?..?.
You work for your family's immediate survival but also for future generations, which you may be born back into at a later time. I've been my own granddaughter before. You can choose to make berry groves, farm vegetables, hunt wolves, range sheep, or even make stew. Some might find the farming aspect boring. Growing vegetables again and again can become tedious but the game offers plenty to do. Branches are added to the game's technological tree weekly: https://onetech.info/
. Each update changes the dynamics of everything. The weekly updates are always eagerly anticipated as the OHOL community loves to adapt to the changes Jason devises. They can be difficult to master but it is so rewarding to help your family advance or , at least, live. Of course, a player can choose to do nothing and just standby; eating what they can get their hands on and watch the community flourish or fail.
However, the main negative aspect of the game is: Homicides. Nobody wants to be associated with a murderer but you may unwittingly raise a player that wants nothing more than to wipe out the village or at least take out as many villagers as they can before justice prevails (hopefully). The hunting, foraging and farming for the survival of yourself and your fellow villagers is exciting but, if I am honest, the occasional thrill and rush provided by the chance to strike down a murderer and save the rest of your family as well as avenge those that were slain is a unique experience. I didn't mention this is all only for $20 and, now I have.
Come take a look. I'm still playing it after 300+ hours of gameplay and I've live-streamed more than half of those at https://www.twitch.tv/2laughor2cry
. What? ¯ _(?)_/¯ Something wrong with a little self-promo? Consider this a formal invitation to come join us. We are a friendly bunch of OHOL lovers. Even if you don't play and are just interested, then at least you can come peek into the fabulous world of One Hour One Life. If you do get the game, then I recommend playing as an Eve to learn basic survival skills. You will die often but you will get better each time.
