It's funny how people find this so deep and moving. I disagree. I can see what you've tried to accomplish here, that Love is not always the fairytale version in movies and books. That sometimes Love can mean something very different. But I see a mentally ill man who hears voices raping and killing a woman. Serial killers claim this as Love, which is obviously your end point here. But why is that so deep? I feel no sympathy for this man, who forced a woman into that position and then took her life, and yet I am supposed to feel for him. This story isn't touching, it's terrifying. I didn't have to think about this at all, you didn't actually give me anything to think on. You said "But what about rape and murder, isn't that love?" And the answer is of course NO.

Nice attempt, though, and I still enjoyed it. I just wish you hadn't advertised this game as something it isn't.

Well done. Yet I don't find those art games about a love that is lost or a love that is found or a love that is brutally murdered not that interesting anymore. Isn't there more in the world that you people could make such games about?

Thanks to you for the time you spent on RAPTUS. :-)
I think that games can be a good way to give to ART that little bit of INTERACTION that is missing, for example, in paintings and poetries.
