There are six different Life Stages in One Hour One Life. Currently, players can either enter the game and be born as an eve (a young woman, without a mother), or a baby (a boy or a girl). Life stages can be divided by a character's age range, 0 to 60 years old. Age's curve also apply in this game, which means a player will start as a weak baby, getting stronger as they mature, and then weaken of old age before they inevitably die.
Note: A year old in-game equals to a minute real-time.
Babies cannot grab or pick anything up, including food. When a player is born as a baby, they spawn in proximity to an adult woman. They can only be breastfed by adult and young adult women (menopause starts at age 40) by being picked up, or they can be fed by any other characters by literally handing them food items.
Babies start with 4 blocks in their food meter which grows one block each year/minute as the baby grows, allowing them to survive longer without being fed.
Babies can speak too! A player can press the "enter" key to type. However, a baby can initially only say 1 letter at a time. As they age, they can type more letters, up to 3 as a baby (6 food bars two, 9 bars four letters ). This allows a baby to communicate with it's mother, especially when a baby needs to be fed.
It is advisable for a newborn to learn from an expert in game. A baby is helpless and cannot do anything except be fed and cared for. Babies walk very slowly. This stage is a good time to start observing and learning how to craft and to survive later in game. Planning is the key.
During this stage you are able to pick up any item except for a Hand Cart, Knife and a Yew Bow. While a player can eat food on their own in this stage, they can still be breastfed for two extra years, which is more efficient as it doesn't consume food items.
During this stage, the character will get more food meter capacity until they reach adulthood. A female character in this stage will be able to give birth to a baby, and breastfeed them. They're also able to do all the tasks that a child cannot do, like pulling a Hand Cart and handling a Yew Bow.
An adult’s food meter will no longer grow as they age. They also retain their previous ability as a young adult until they become elders, when they lose their ability to nurse a baby (age 40) and nurture a new generation.
A female in the elderly stage cannot breastfeed babies any longer, nor give birth to a new baby. Shortly said, they're post menopausal. Characters who reach the elderly stage will begin to lose their food meter capacity by one block every year (a minute real-time) until there's only four blocks left. This will make them prone to die of starvation rather than old age if they didn't prepare an easily accessible food stock. Soon after they reach four blocks, they'll die of old age. It is best to stay near a fire, without clothes, with some food near you, and say goodbye.
