Russian Roulette is a simple game of absolute luck. A classic match occurs between two players as they sit in front of each other with nothing but luck on each other’s side. This is a game of determination, and it has never truly been replicated in a game, but one title comes very close.
Russian Roulette: One Life is the game that took one of the most realistic takes for the classic game. The title takes death to a whole new level by giving you a bullet, a revolver, one spin, and hope. It is a simple game where your character is stuck in a state of limbo, not knowing how and why he is there, only that he exists somewhere he shouldn’t.
You spawn into a world with yourself and a very talkative stranger. The world itself includes very few items of interest. At first glance, you will see a person with eyes glowing red, waiting for you to sit down and converse with him.
Many players would want to talk to this man first, but the outside is a much more dead atmosphere, even more than the decaying shed. Outside, the only thing of concern is the gravestones that signify a certain player’s name and the accumulated score they had just before dying.
Seeing many scores of 1 or 2 or seeing someone hit an impressive 15 is very cool to look around, but the actual game remains in the small house, a game that will decide if your name on the gravestone will be significant or not.
After conversing with the stranger and asking him who he is and where you are, you realize that the state you are in is dire. The stranger says that it does not matter who he is or where we are, only the game. When we ask him for a way to escape, he simply says death; this is where the game begins.
After sitting down to play the game, you can test out the gun without a bullet. Here you realize that the game is literally what it is called. After playing a dud game, you can start an actual game. Here you put 1 bullet in the chamber, spin it as hard as you want, and pull the trigger.
That’s it; the entire game is pulling the trigger until your luck runs out, which in this game’s case, should not be long. After dying, you are locked out of the game, never to play again, fitting the tone of death perfectly.
