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.

Whee! Just high scored for the day! I felt like I needed to get the most out of this game so I went back and played again, except this time I minimalised my click count and chose life over death.

Raptus is definitely the most emotionally enticing point-and-click game I've seen on NG to date. The concept and story gave me chills along with the on-screen prompts to "PUSH HIM" and "CLICK FASTER," persuading me to continue like the voice in my head. A full 5 star piece of interactive performance and it'll be hard to beat in the near future. ;D

Why is love a one way street?
In the sense that once we go down it we can't turn around and forget about it?
I'm not sure if i agree with this idea, we can forgive, forget and move on. We can not kill someone and instead break up with them and move on with our lives for example.

I guess I just found the central theme of this to be contrived and only artificially meaningful.
The atmosphere was good initially but the music became increasingly annoying as the pacing was too slow to enjoy the game. As far as interactivity went it was sorely lacking as well. Not the best.
