Life is complicated, and so are some video games. But in animator Eben McCue's mind, it's not all about leveling up or earning stat points. It's about progressing, and you can't stop. It's an endless runner, until it all ends.

Graduate college? Level up. Get turned down by that girl you asked out? A little bit of health loss. But there are no branching storylines about what city to move to or inventories of all the stuff you've collected over the years. It's all about going, going, going... until it ends. You might as well experience it.
