Game: 12 Heartbeats Away

12 Heartbeats Away is a game about what can go through someone's head during the few seconds preceding the personal tragedy of a romantic break-up. Durint this split second, a lot of thoughts can come up. Climb those as some kind of tree in this story-telling oriented little game. Every step will get you one heartbeat closer to the inevitable choice that you can only make by finding the right tools in the maze of your psyche. Up to six different endings are available. Please note you can only use the .exe locally, in order to use the .swf you would have to run it online, even by hosting it yourself. For those among you with Mac OS or Linux, you may find the flash version online at the following adress, with an html wrapper (around 4mo, I had not enough time to make a decent looking loader, sorry):


No cheating (please): The game system relies on willing player participation to enforce the rules of the game world (e.g., hold your breath, close your eyes, etc.).
