I enjoyed the soundtrack and how it tied in with everything that was happening with the story. However, i could not connect to the two characters deeply enough to care about them or their fate.
That said, the story itself is quite morbid and dark, and it is effectively shown throughout the piece. But still, i was not moved by anything, as i had no rapport with neither the male or female. This could have been given with maybe a bit of back story. Maybe the guy was a drunken loner who was seeing a psychiatrist, or maybe the girl was a prostitute who has a PTSD due to being beaten by her ex boyfriend, who she murdered, or was witness to his murder. I don't know, i am no game creator. These are just some of the things that can be implemented to a character to make him/her seem more of a person who, when killing his girlfriend or being murdered by her boyfriend, is flawed.
All i got from the portrayal of the characters is that he is a creep.
2 stars, purely due to the stunning combination of soundtrack and visuals.

Good game could have made it better like get rid of the shimmering when you click and make the text a bit brighter but overall 2.5 stars for music and 1.5 stars for art.

Best thing about this was the soundtrack. Very sad and depressing music. However, there was no exploration of "Love and Death", just a story about a guy who killed his girlfriend because she wouldn't put out. The only choice the "player" has is to follow her into death or to leave. It failed to provide any insights, became repetitive in it's dialogue, and the whole thing with the text tweaking and shaking every time the mouse button was clicked was painful on the eyes. 1 star for the music, 1/2 for the "story".
