LOL. I thought it was pretty standard, but the part that stood out for me was when he was dumping her body at the lake. I liked how you took an ironic approach towards her burial; instead of sanctimoniously giving her a grave in a quiet forest or something, he wraps her in a body bag to drag her corpse and dump it in a lake like a piece of trash. I laughed a bit at that, which ruined the mood for me at the end though.

I also thought that it could have been sped up and that the slow music further emphasized this, making it somewhat tedious.

It was a bit short for a story, but highly enjoyable none the less. The music and the visual effects were particularly impressive in my opinion, all relatively simple yet very effective.

Is it just me, or did it say something like "rail" the second time you play through the game, during the intro driving part? Or was that there all along and I just missed it?

Hi Discodunk! :D
Nope it wasn't just you. :-p
It says RAIL. Actually, because it runs backward... it's LIAR! :-p
I was thinking about reversing the "R" like in "REDRUM" (as I did in the title!).

this is a great game
----------------------------
walkthrough: instead of clicking rapidly at the parts when at the building wall and river click regulerly rapidly hardly works


AlanZucconi responds:

* SPOILERS *

Yes. :-p You can simply click regularly. :-)
Now you unravelled the secret! :p

This game was okay. It was short and seemed to drag out in certain areas. I like your concept and graphics. Will there be a sequel?


AlanZucconi responds:

Well, this was already a sort of "spin-off" from "The Body" by "AwkwardSilenceGames". So I don't think there will be a sequel. :-p
But there will be another game, maybe in the Summer. :-p

This story reminded me a lot of "Where the wild roses grow" a song related to a man murdering someone he loved and giving her a rose. While also putting her body in a river. Anyhow off subject. About the Point and click.

1. I was impressed at the beginning the lightning and the soothing music kept me interested. This point and click has some unique aspects to it. A great deal of flow was put into it and the little effort added with the rain was gorgeous.

2. A problem I did have with it was that although almost all the chapters were fast enough sometimes I felt like the pace was a tad to slow. Even more so when I played again so I could see the second ending.

3. The concept of bringing a killer into the story was interesting but I felt like maybe a bit more could of been added. It would of been nice if there were more choices rather then just the interactive clicking. Like to choose if you could not do certain things expect for the ending.

Anyhow in a way you've done an amazing job at adding atmosphere and giving a sense of depth I just felt that in some areas it was lacking. Nice job anyhow.

Hi Monako! :-)
Since now, you're the first one who actually got the "Where the wild roses grow" quote! :-)
I really like that song, especially in the dichotomy between what Kylie and Nick said.
It talks about Love. A sick, pathological, disturbing one. But still love is.
The idea of drowning here in the lake was completely stolen from that song. :-p
