The Killer was inspired by the month I spent traveling through and learning about Cambodia. You can learn more at GameTrekking.com.

UPDATE: for those who may find the music overbearing, there is an ambient version of The Killer available at http://www.gametrekking.c om/the-games/cambodia/the -killer/play-now

Educational, interesting, but slooooooow

At first, I thought that my actions (shooting into the sky instead of killing the victim) would have no effect on the game. Thanks for proving me wrong.

My only critique is that it takes too long to reach the message. And yes, I feel that this game is very educational. Thank you for making it.

Great game!

I was told about the Red Khmer during my time in Vietnam but I never got to learning it. Thanks for teaching me something I didn't know.

Nice message, bad game

It's good that you're trying to raise awareness of Cambodia but as a game this is awful. What's more after the end it takes so long to get to the stuff about Cambodia that players are likely to just quit, should be able to get to that stuff quicker. Overall it's good that someone's using games to talk about important issues but pity it's done in such a shallow way. Thanks for including the no music option

@ Genocide - WHAT?!

Alright, let's take this one step at a time.

1) So you're "insulted" by this and the way it's been described at GiantBomb? HOW?! You don't actually tell us what's so "insulting." Because you don't "connect with the message"? You're insulted because you don't think it's good? I'm confused.

2) If you had let go of the spacebar for one second, only the man with the gun would have stopped, making it obvious who you were controlling. Even then, I would argue it doesn't really matter.

3) How is the depiction of Cambodia not accurate? How do you know? I grew up in Thailand and visited Cambodia many times. I'd like to know what you think is inaccurate.

Personally I think it's a quality experience. I think we all agree it doesn't matter how much of a "game" this is. But from my view it's a better interactive experience than many "games" I've paid good money for.
