Well done

Man, as scary as the subject matter was, your game was depp, and in no way glorified what happened that day. Kudos to you on a well put together, unbiased and unashamed game, all my 5's belong to this

hmmm

overall i was an ok game smooth playing but with nes graphics. However the subject matter and story behind it leaves a little to be desired. I dont know if it was a good idea to poke fun at a tragity like this with a shooting game. The music was ok that played but the first thing i did when i started was well.... get caught. Overall 6/10 but please dont poke fun at something like this

You know what, youre right. It was wrong of me to make fun of a tragity like i have. It's a tragity in of itself to make fun of such a tragity. You really made me stop and think about how im not really doing anything to prevent such a tragity! I'm doing nothing more than jabbering on about a tragity! THAT DOESNT HELP ANYONE! If anything this conversing of knowledge will cause another tragity! And then i'll be the cause of tragitees... oh god, what have i done?

Well done, but a extremely violent reminder.

I'm just going to give you my opinion on the game, then the game compared to the subject.

The game was beautifully put together, and matched the events almost perfectly. However it was pixalated and that brings the graphics down. The game allows you to look at it from the shooter's point of view, and I like that.

However the terror involved negatively impacted the score, it tries to make fun of it, and mocks it. It is a sensitive subject that could be avoided. I'd say it's just bad timing to release a game like this.
Please understand my thinking.

A triumph of free speech and creative freedom.

I put close to zero credence in reviews due to various spam groups propagating their agenda of awards manipulation and the vast morass that is ignorant, unquestioning public opinion (amongst other things), but I feel compelled to review this flash despite the almost inherent futility of the act.

First and foremost, I commend you on how you conveyed the events of the massacre. People playing the game had to follow a rough parallel of the final day of Cho Seung-Hui's life to advance the story. You included some popular conjecture of Cho's motives that has been circulating around the internet into this storyline, but that definitely fits the bill stylistically considering the various internet slang and memes referenced throughout.

While the pixel graphics were adequate the sound is where you really excelled. People familiar with the case will instantly recognize the song "Shine" by Collective Soul. Cho listened to this song compulsively and even inscribed the lyrics on a dorm wall. During the second phase of the game that includes a stealth-based theme, Mr. Brownstone is played. This is a reference to the name of a disturbing play written by Cho. At Norris Hall, where the main massacre takes place, there are many witty aphorisms you included that Cho seemingly thinks to himself during the massacre. Some of these include the extent of the damage he inflicts, the killing of false idols (which he mentions in his manifesto), and of course the Zerg "bullet" rush. A particularly interesting quip is intoned after killing Professor Liviu Librescu.

All in all, this was a decent game rife with entertaining witticisms that demonstrate this was all done in jest, with no real malicious intent. It was unique and for the most part, well thought out. Sure, some will infer that this was made in poor taste. Maybe a disclaimer asserting sympathies to anyone involved could have been handy to help people generally acquiesce, while simultaneously letting your true intent be conveyed. This deserves recognition, but I fear it will be the wrong type.
