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
As a flash developer, i am actually a bit insulted by this game and how it's being advertised by giantbomb. I understand that there is a "message" behind this flash, but they way it is presented is just not easy for me to connect with. Fot a bit there, i was unsure of if i was the guy with the gun, or the hostage. (you're the guy with the gun, it does EVENTUALLY become obvious).
In the end, i don't really know who i should be telling to play this. It's not a good game(because it was never intended to be), and it's not really a very thick personal endevour. If anything, it's kind of a piss-poor-paper-thin look at how Cambodia is, and even then it's not completely accurate.
Just one question
Why did you put in the landmines?
Even if there are landmines in Cambodia, putting them in kinda hurts the purpose of the whole game.
It's not helpful if you're gonna tell people about the tragedy when you're interrupting them with a sudden explosion that makes me think ".....what the heck?"
Touching and informative
The music was beautiful, and it added to the feel of the "notgame." Thank you for informing the public of what happened. This "notgame" truly does belong in the category "Art," and I'm so glad to have found it. I now know of a beautiful song, and of this horrible, tragic event.
-You always have a choice. It's up to you to acknowledge that it's there.
Agree with bloodstainedhitokiri
It's more than just a game. Letting us be the killer rather than the victim plays with our conscience and makes us ponder more on the weight of Cambodia's suffering. Could you kill an innocent, defenseless person? I know I couldn't, but such injustice has actually happened (and happening in other places). That dirk555 person has still SO MUCH MORE to learn in this life.
I think that this notgame is very very good. People don't seem to realize that it isn't about the gameplay, but the meaning. Idk if dirk555 is for real or just trolling. Seriously. My world history education is very spotty, and I never knew about the Khmer Rouge until now. I think that you informed at least one person of the cruelty of Cambodia's past is reward enough, isn't it? Of course, I didn't shoot the guy. I didn't lose heart even if you panned down and showed all the thousands of other dead bodies. If I could've saved just one person, then that would be fine.
Great game, 10 stars.
