What If..

you could start over and live your life from beginning? What would you change if it comes to friends, jobs and decisions in general?

these questions were asked by a a Man called “Peter J. Favaro” who created a game called Alter Ego which was released 1986 by Activision.

the game itself had no fancy graphics (except little icons which expressed and let the player explore the current situation) but was quite addicting cause every choice you made changed your life on coming aspects and was based on actual psychological knowledge and experiences.
