*Thanks to everyone who helped give Skinny a Daily First Place! :D
**Thank you Tom and the rest of the NG staff for the Front Page!

Once Coma was completed, I figured I would make another game just for kicks. It turned out this game took up more of my time than two semesters of college. Anyways, I hope everyone here at NG has fun playing :)

Thanks!

Also, what's always fun is discussing your thoughts on the meaning of the game. I sure know what it means, but what about you?

UPDATES/BUGS (upon update approval from NG staff):
1) Both ASWD and Arrow Keys will work.
2) No more getting stuck behind doors.
3) Easier game-play experience.
4) As for those of you experiencing sticky keys in Internet Explorer, a friendly user called bubblecue says
the simple solution is to go to the tools tab on internet explorer and click on internet options. Then you click on the security tab and uncheck enable protected mode and then click ok. turn back your protected mode when you are done playing. Hope that works!

Good game, the puzzles where sometimes a bit hard to figure out, arrow keys did not work for me and as far as instructions go, press ''over'' was probably one of the least helpful I ever got. I can't say I liked the grapple (the time it takes gets really frustrating when you miss al the time) and the graphics, while perfect for setting the mood where sometimes confusing as to where you can and can not jump against. Apart from that I really loved it. The ending is a bit of a shame though.
All in all the story was well done and you really managed to get the player to follow the thoughts of the main character, you learn things at the same pace, not in some games where you know your being bs'ed but have to keep going to further the story. A great experience.

And as for the meaning of the game, obvious spoiler alert, I think ''the system'' refers to society, the 9-5 job etc etc system. We grown-ups are trapped in it and convince each other that if we don't, bad things happen (like the cancers), children are not part of the system though, and are very happy for it.

Mamma must then be a personification of the system, posing as a nurturing, protective being with only our best interest in mind (a mother, easy to realize if you know mamma is Dutch for mommy) if we want to disobey that just shows our ignorance.

by stealing the battery's (maybe symbolic for TV and other forms of mass entertainment) people are forces to experience the real world, good and bad. The responses vary. In the end you follow the children's wisdom and tear down the system. Forcing everybody to wake from a pleasant dream to a less pleasant, but much more rewarding reality.

Id like to hear weather or not I was anywhere close with this theory of mine.
