Wow...Indeed. Its an emotional game. You hate him, but you at the same time feel pity for him...Death is what he deserves.


AlanZucconi responds:

Hi LittleNerdGirl!
I take your point of view.
But... in the end, you are the one who forced him to do what He did.
So... ...isn't this enough to relief him from a part of the guiltiness? :-p

A game that tries to hard to be a book that tries to hard to be a movie.

Artistic does not mean slow. It means there's a piece of the creators soul that he/she put onto a an object, may that object be canvas, MSword, javascript, etc.

There's nothing deep at all about this, nothing personal. It's just some crappy music that sets more of the tone of the game then any of the text or gameplay. I don't want to have watch a game or play a movie. I just want to get into it, albeit an art game, then I want to feel the creators personification inside the game.

The 'protagonist' is to obscure to relate to, and the story is to obscure to follow. Long story short, your unrelatable character slowly separates and eventually dissolves any course of relatability through whiny dialogue, and pointless choices, which causes this boring, whiny, hipster inspired loser to make stupid decisions.

That's the complete opposite of what I want from a game/book/movie/etc. It's played out, it's generic, it's annoying.

Not very stimulating. Despite all the text, the protagonist's way of thinking is still unclear. The abnormal course of action separates the player from the character too much. And we're supposed to be helping him be a monster? As if.
His whiny monologue only serves to separate the player further. I drowned him just to shut him up. Brooding psychopaths are for Twihards.

**Spoilers**

Dude kills a girl, and they love each other in death? Bull. If the woman could fall in love with the guy that brutally attacked and murdered her, she's just as crazy as he is.
