Hardly a game.

OK, yeah, it's got a vague story and pixel art, which somehow qualifies it as an "artistic" game that people will say I'm some idiot for not getting.

This isn't art. It's just a poor game with a few lines of text that kind of implies it's some kind of parasitic cell that was an absorbed twin (which is a real phenomenon, although they generally don't turn into weird abominations that fly out of your chest), but is vague enough to leave it open for "interpretation."

Yes, you can get something out of this. But you know what? You can get something out of any story, that doesn't make it good. Compared to real games, the gameplay in this is terrible, and compared to real good works of art in other forms, the message here is weak.

What's not to get?

How are so many people going "lol wtf is this I dont get it roflrofl." Isn't it pretty obvious when it says "left to die in the flesh of my brother?" Like, c'mon. There aren't too many conclusions you can draw from that, even without seeing the ending.

Anyhow, i'll go along with the "good concept, weak gameplay" crowd. A legit game based on the same idea would be rad.

weak

i somehow get the feeling, that you didn't really put much effort into this. it's an interesting story, but the gaming is totally awful and messy. or disturbing, just as xChapx said
