"This is a game truly in its own class. I cried a bit when I finished. Lovely gem of a game. You don't find original ideas and good stories like this anymore. You have my thanks for making this game."

Once Upon A Life is a story that unfolds through polaroids in Harry's life, and whilst illustrating them I developed a real emotional investment in his story. I really enjoyed writing the music and monologue which was authentically and fantastically delivered by David Dixon, which was to be the first of many collaborations together. Wayne Marsh done a great job of putting together the various minigames in a polished and coherent way.

Despite a few things that could perhaps be reworked slightly, I'm immensely proud of the entire package and it feels like my most 'complete' Flash game to date. Reading the heartwarming comments and reviews sections for the game is a particularly rewarding thing for me also.
