no-one has to die. is a game about decisions. You will choose who lives and who dies, and your choices will change the events of the game completely.




A fire has trapped four people in the Fenix Corp. headquarters, a building full of secrets. You arrive in the building to find the security guards murdered. Now it’s up to you help everyone escape.




If only it were so easy. People will die, and it will be your fault. How you choose to contain the fire will lead to people burning to death. So, who lives? It’s your choice.



Lionel is the CEO of Fenix Corporation. Arrogant and selfish, he only cares about his own chances of survival. But he’s the only one that knows what Fenix Corporation truly does...



Christina is a young woman who has been working at Fenix Corporation for a few years. She is strong in the face of danger, but can’t stand to think of the lives the fire has consumed.



If Steve hadn’t been working overtime when the fire began, he could have avoided the whole thing. Always one for a joke, he and Christina don’t always get along, but deep down they care about each other.



And then there’s Troy. A murderer and an arsonist, Troy is behind everything that is happening in the Fenix Corporation. What sick game is he playing?




So, who will you save? Who will die? Their lives are in your hands.

Just finished my play. Its now 1:19 am, I should have gone to bed long ago but I had to play the game to an end! :D


Congratulations. For me, this is the best story-based game since "A grain of truth".


Now I will go to bed, dreaming about fire, crazy machines and other universes  :blink:

Woah. What an amazing story. And it is well served by the music and the simple but efficient gameplay. Although it's not the gameplay I'll remember the most about this game (I consider the multiple endings, part of the story).

One of the few browser games I would recommend to friends (be sure I will) and I don't feel I have wasted time playing it.


Stuart, you are now part of my list of  watched game designers :)
