This isn't really a game. If you wanted to share your experience, why not make a movie instead?


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Not much of a game, would have been better to just make an animation.
Sorry about that, but it's not really game enough and I honestly do think it would be better off suited as an animation as to us having to occasionally press an arrow.

Gameplay: decent timewaster, not exactly exciting but not exactly boring either, occasionally the game broke, especially at the waiting room.

Story: Hearing someone complain about first world problems isn't very compelling, first worlders complaining about the consequences of their weight gain is pretty insulting and insensitive to the third world where hunger is an issue.

Conclusion: Mediocre gameplay, variety alone makes it decent but not deserving of the kind of "indie" praise it got, baseless pretentiousness and minority points might work on other people, but not me. 1 star is the best I can do.

I give you one point because of the nice concept and originality, and some of the screens were cute. Besides that though, I honestly have no idea how this got featured on the front page. Straight from the first page, which it took me several minutes and varying array of directional button presses to pass, the programming was faulty and unproffesional, making many "levels" horrendously tedious and nearly impossible. You have some potential but my reccomendation would be next time have someone else program. :) k bye

This was not a game.
It's great that you have the strength and courage to do what's best for you; it really is... and I think maybe I should look into this a bit, myself.
But this is NOT a game.
I understand you want to share your success with the world, and that's fantastic. This was a great autobiography done in a quick flash.
But This Is Not A Game.
It's a glorified movie.

I don't think you could even classify this as being an art game. You should have kept this on your personal website, and linked to it from a movie you made.
Yes, you reached a lot of people through Newgrounds and that's great for you. But why don't you change this into a movie, and then link to your website like you did in the comments anyway?

Please don't get me wrong... I'm happy for you, and all you've become. I'm happy that you're happy.
But this isn't a game, and it doesn't belong in the games portal.
By no means should you take it down, at all! Just move it to where it belongs; please.
Again: Congratulations, and stand tall and proud to be who you are at heart.
