Update: I think a lot of you are too quick to judge this game without finishing it. If you still hate it after you've seen the ending, then feel free to leave a nasty review.

Do you think there is an animal heaven?

Actually

(SPOILER ALERT)
Given how the game ends, and the segment before the final night, you are given insight as to why the game progresses as it does. You are also given non-sociopathic options the entire way (including the option of altruistically only hitting hard objects to spare the animals, then letting your parents see your hands, etc) to "stop".
Also, many users here have done far more inhumane things on games. This one is just personalized by the point of view and the gripping motivation of self interest: you could stop at any point by simply going to another site, but will YOU?
Those that are offended, actually think about what's offending you here. Finish the game and compare the end to any other action game here where you're trying the save the princess or just get yourself some gold... Are your actions really all that different?

That being said, my problem with the game is that you are somewhat forced to go along with the sociopathic route to progress. Ideally, you'd have multiple paths and multiple endings (rather than the quasi-"game over" non-sociopathic endings).

Either way, the game is successful at "gripping" the player as I mentioned previously. The music helps quite a bit. Also, compare this game to other submissions (such as The Company of Myself) and it might give you some insight into the author's perspective of things. The bizarro nature and point of view are amazing tools to make users not only keep playing... but actually start thinking.

OK game

If there was a message here, I didn't get it.
This game has nice graphics, cool music and the story is entertaining enough (I didn't like the mushrooms), but the gameplay is too repetitive, you could have added a level up system.
I was actually expecting a fighting or brawler game in which cute animals would be a punching bag though.

I defeated the last boss was holding "n" all the time and just punching with my left hand.

Not cutting it.

I am confused as how you thought a game about animal cruelty would on any level be good or appropriate. This might be one of the worst games I have played in my life. There is no deep meaning, it is just you trying to incorporate killing animals into a game.

Not Deep... just wrong

No, this game has no "deep" message. Is just a "beggining" of a serial killer game. If I could sumarize it, i would say it is a stupid american guy who decides to punch and punch animals for a weird reason. And you punch and punch more animals, until you decide to "cross the line"...
But... can everybody see that this game can be "fun" but the ideia is TOTALLY WRONG?
I can imagine that somepeople in this site, with missing human rationality, would play this because they think it's nice to punch and kill animals, as they are here to serve the human race.
And what was your intention "author"? A "beggining of a serial killer game" or a "animal cruelty game"?
This is why I rated this 2 (as it would be toooooooo harsh to rate it 0).
