One Last Game is a dread-inducing little experience where you play one final game of checkers with a loved one.
Created for the GMTK Game Jam 2020, in One Last Game you find yourself sitting down at a table in-front of a checkers board with an old and rather unhappy man sat across from you. You proceed to play checkers, but it soon becomes apparent why your companion is so unhappy – there’s a war going on outside. Shells explode nearby, the room shakes and the power goes out, but still the two of you continue to play your game. There is no escape now, you’ve accepted your fate and playing checkers with your loved one is a final piece of normality that you cling to in the dread-filled world.
It only takes three minutes to play through One Last Game but it’s a powerful experience that will stay with you for a long time afterward. It’s a simple concept that’s very well executed and it fills you with more fear and dread than most horror games. But there’s also love – your final moments are a mark of defiance against the horrors of war as you play your final game of checkers with a loved one. Highly recommended.
