OverviewOverview

Passage passage.toolness.org is a super-simple game from the same developer as One Hour One Life on the theme of a life well lived. Although just a few minutes long, it offers an unusual interactive metaphor for the different stages of life that can spark deep conversations.

The game is deceptive. At first, it almost looks like the graphics are broken. But as you play and explore a few times you discover that every piece of the experience is there intentionally. Interpreting and reflecting on the short game is as much fun as playing it - particularly in groups.

The game sparked an emotional response when it was first released, paving the way for other games like Minecraft. It has been played in a wide variety of cultural settings, even used in church services.
