I wanted to build something confrontational, that would engage players to give thought to what they are doing both in and out of game.

The result is 'Loved' - a short story in the form of a flash platformer.

Updates
1. It should be much easier to perform precise drops now
2. Resurrecting inside walls should no longer be possible
3. Slope-related glitching should no longer occur
4. Added a small secret

Very interesting. If you're the submissive personality, you'll do everything the voice says. And the voice loves you all the more for it. The voice loves to be in control, and loves to control you. And so does the relationship work, so to speak.

On the other hand, if you ignore everything the voice says, it will call you terrible things, certainly, but in the end, the voice is simply scared that you'll leave them. The voice loves you, that's why it tells you, that's why it knows what's best for you, even if it's not actually better. The voice is the classic control freak; insecure in themselves, and therefor insecure in all others. Through control, the risk of being abandoned is, in the mind of the controller, slim.

From personal experience, I can say there are many women (maybe men, but I've never been that involved with one) who want their partners to be controlling. It's a very strange thing, methinks, wanting to be controlled. But if that's what you like, who's to say you're wrong? Great social experiment, author. Most definitely opened my eyes, and many other's. Kudos.

Hmm...

I think when you disobey, he tries to blind you, and if you obey, he tries to guide you.

Disobeying looks colorful and good at first, but then you realize what is happening.

Brilliant game.

Interesting...

Great game! The first time I played I obeyed and did what I was told because I thaught I would be rewarded somehow. After realizing that the cake was a lie, I replayed it and only obeyed when it was reasonable to me. This game really made me think. Anyways, great job!
