One Hour One Life gives you 60 minutes to rebuild civilization

If you only had one hour to live your entire life, what would you do?

This is the intriguing premise of the new multiplayer survival game One Hour One Life. Developed by Jason Rohrer, the game throws players into a the role of a baby who grows up, ages, and dies within an hour. During that time, players try to make advancements through crafting and growing a family so that these achievements can be passed down to the next generation.

It should be noted that babies have to be taken care of by other players, which means that you might end up babysitting gamers yourself when you’re an adult. Rohrer said that he will be trying to stay one step ahead of the playerbase by developing the next phase of the tech tree and dropping them into the game through weekly updates.

One Hour One Life’s persistent server starts out as a pristine wilderness that will slowly be transformed into civilization through the efforts of players over multiple generations. Check out the trailer and gameplay after the break and let us know what you think of this unique-looking title!

Sounds very interesting. I like games that do ideas like this, where you’re building up generations and can’t be expected to do everything with a single character.

So if one minute = one year…..you only get to live sixty years? Assuming you don’t get eaten by a grue?

This doesn’t sound fun to me at all! I use my game time as an escape. This seems like logging into a more hectic life.

So if someone drops me as a baby after 5 minutes I’m dead and game is over? And I can’t login to play if there is no female ready to become pregnant? Is there pregnancy with effects or only pop-birth? Because i can promise you no female player is going to be willing to act as constant birth machine …
What incentive is there to care for other player? Will there be those who feel it is something they should do and then they will feel like they rather did something else as they are stuck with it?

…and that’s why I’m not interested.

Cool idea with the babies and parenting, but I do see quite some potential for griefing lowbies lol.
But if it works in this game, then WoW should totally adopt that!
