I don't even know why I bother trying to be hip and all when I still don't get on that damn bytejacker show and I still don't get on TIGsource's frontpage. I don't know why, but I still try.

You sort of have to play my other game "You Only Live Once" before you play this. What happens in that game decides what happens in this.

Not as great as you only live once

it does emphasize the point but this could have been done a lot better.
like maybe the game could have questioned your reason for killing the lizard, after all you were trespassing in his castle killing his minions by stomping them to death. or the guy, he was only trying to save his girlfreind.

Just Terrible SINCE!!!

I shot one bullet at the tumbleweed and one at his rib. He didnt do much and the statement was poorly executed. The last one went on for awhile showing you only live once, but i sense a brainfog on your part for how the middle and end of this played out.

I also tried to restart to shoot him in the head to see what happens if anything, but no ammo! You even go as so far to taking away a reload?! Im sure alot of people shot him in the foot and wanted to see the head or something speciel shot. But no. Just made me spend as little time as possible in my life on this.

Sorry but even this short little peice wouldnt pass even at a alabama sundance fest.

Should have been edited into the other game

Although I appreciate that this game adds a more didactic theme to the philosophically vague adventure in You Only Live Once, you probably should have included this in that game, rather than submitting it in a stand-alone format. People aren't going to get this unless they played You Only Live Once, and even then, it's literally over in as long as it takes your average trigger happy, ADD suffering Newgrounds user to decide to point and click. Do you care about your ratings? More power to you if you don't, but I don't think Newgrounds is really place to use flash animation to make artistic statements.

Also, despite its simplicity and the understated nature of the death, the game's tone comes off as more than a little heavy-handed. I think you might be taking yourself a little too seriously, or otherwise expecting more from your audience than you're going to get. Video games are on the verge of becoming an art form, but I'm not sure they're quite there yet. I think you should keep experimenting, but consider channeling some more playful energy next time around. Flash games are generally simple and silly -- you can still use them for whatever you want, but I don't think something like this is going to have the impact you're hoping for, especially here, and especially when displayed separately from the piece it builds on.

Don't worry about the lack of recognition -- you're doing things I don't see or hear of anyone else doing. Yeah, I know people think you bit the idea from some other guy, but I'm guessing you're "facepalming" because it wasn't intentional. Correct me if I'm wrong -- but I'm not, am I? Shit happens. Someone beat you to the punchline this time. Back to the drawing board. I don't know where you're at in terms of formal education or a career, but if you keep it up you'll get where you want to be eventually. You've got real creativity and talent to back it up. You "still try," I think, because this seems to be what you're passionate about, and you have some novel, perhaps even literally great ideas. Keep it up. I'll be watching.

raitendo responds:

personally I agree that the "your actions have consequences" is a bit heavy-handed but this is a tribute to Jesse Venbrux' Execution which had a similar ending message. If you play his game first I'm sure you'll see just how silly this is :)
