About the Story

What if the technology to make everyone forever young and immortal is already around? We just don't know about it as it is top secret.

In this gender-neutral choice-based story, you have an opportunity to tell the truth to the world as a lab assistant to the scientist who created the immortality pill. Can you figure out the right thing to do?

The game uses no visuals or sounds, only plain text. Five different endings possible.

Interesting take on an interesting subject, October 18, 2020

Good story dealing with a favorite subject of mine, "what if the way to immortality was discovered?" (even if my opinions are widely different from those of the author). The story puts you in a string of interesting and unsettling situations and the choices feel meaningful; the ending(s) will surprise you.

Interesting, December 7, 2020

It was a very interesting game, I played it a while ago and forgot to make a review. I remember there was one part where the wording confused me and I picked the option in the opposite direct from what I wanted. otherwise it was a well constructed and though out story with a unique twist.
