I see the artistic value in the game, and to be honest, i sat here for 10 minutes wondering what to do when it was to kill him or not. The dark game your portraying here seems like the mind of a psychopath, Human nature wrestling against the concience. Great game, ive played it through both times now to see what the endings are but i still am having a hard time seeing what the outcome is....

Well i thought that i was gonna be a flamer when i told you i didnt find anything deep in this but i see that other reviewers think so too..
I found the tale really shallow, i mean a guy sees woman , no sex, murder..
:/
3 stars just to keep you going on better games :)

Hi RAXUS13!
Don't worry... if you express your opinion in a polite way, you are not a flamer. There are quite a lot of flamers here, but I don't classify you as one of them! :-)

If you actually look at the first review, you can see that lot of people really unravel the message that is inside RAPTUS. It is not just the story of a man who is killing a girl because she is not having sex with him. This would be quite pointless. :-p

RAPTUS contains several metaphors, and almost any aspect of the game is somehow related or connected to a deeper meaning. Of course, if you play the game expecting it to be a game, you will be quite disappointed.

I realise that, since it has been features on the first page, lot of people who didn't like this type of experimental games started to complaint. RAPTUS is designed for a very specific target. Making it available to a bigger audience is great, but of course, it means that the "ratio" of people who can understand it, is dropping dramatically. :-p
However, I wrote a comment to Serann (just under your review) that explains some of the aspects of the game. Hope you will find it interesting! :-)
