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.

Philosophical,indeed. What makes a man kill another living being? A voice in his head. Maybe he just had to fulfil himself. Maybe he just had an impulse. It doesn't matter. The important thing is what his actions changes in the woman's life.

Wow, I had no idea that this game was going to take such a dark turn. He seemed like he was really going to have sex with her, but he ended up killing her. It's even hard to classify this as a game, but you do cover that in the author comments. I'm surprised this doesn't have a higher rating. I guess it doesn't have much to offer in terms of gameplay, but it doesn't need to. Many games are mostly cutscenes anyway.

I liked how the pixellation was used. The atmosphere was so good, with everything being dark and in the rain. If I ever went insane like this, I think something similar would probably happen to me, in terms of emotion. I like how the color struts out when you click things. I guess love makes you do crazy things.
