6 Minute Life is a two-player interactive mixed media digital roleplaying game based on simple physical actions with Blinks hardware tiles made by Move38. Inspired by Jason Rohrer's Passage, Fingle and Erik Erikson's stages of psychosocial development theory, players will grow and interact as characters from birth to death.

6 Minute Life was made in a weekend for IndieCade East's 2018 Game Jam by Blinks and won Best Worldbuilding Award.

The rules are included as a .pdf download to this project. 

(Note: This game uses Blinks hardware and a specific code base, and is mostly unplayable without those but the rules can be referenced.)


Primary Team Members: Charles H. Huang (Programmer, Game Design), Jingyu Sui (Game Design) 

Additional Support: Danyang Guo, that guy who dropped by for a second to suggest the idea that led to "Finger Olympics" as per the 2018 Winter Olympics
