Humanity has had its time, and that time has drawn to a close. It is now time for humanity to be catalogued.

[UPDATE] A number of people have commented on a bug when locating the last Piece of Eternity. I've looked into this, and on top of fixing the bug, have moved the piece altogether. You should now be able to discover all of them.
I've also modified vine-climbing a bit, to make it slightly more accommodating.

This is an interactive story. It's gameplay-light, and is meant to give you a bit of mental fodder. Inspired by David Bowie's conceptual album and song, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars".

Soundtrack is available in the Audio Portal, links on the sidebar.

Enjoy <3

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The game was definitely best on my first run through, but the endings didn't really provide any sense of loss or satisfaction, and just felt repeated after playing one of them. The WASD and arrow key controls weren't told anywhere, which was ok as they're pretty generic, and the vines took a little bit of thinking by needing to jump from them instead of just fall. It felt strangely straightforward being able to just run through to the end essentially, but convenient too to see how things would play out, and without being frustrating to the player, but also resulted in the feeling that there wasn't that much to it.
Overall it was good, not great or amazing, but good, and the decision you have to make does help call into question what is most important to you, something I personally wasn't sure of.

I thought it was very well made game. The only problem I had was once I got to the Kenican village and I got to the water where you have to climb the vines, After I get past the first set of vines I just couldn't get to the other ones. Is there a secret to it or am I just stupid? Anyways im sure it would've been a game with a deep message which I usually like but sadly I couldnt finish it. So overall I give it a 3.5 :)

The premise was strong, and I was excited to get started, but the controls aren't strong enough for the kind of platforming you're hoping to achieve which made it very tedious to play (especially with the vines.)

Wow... This is the first "Under Judgement" game I have ever played. This game is great. This game really opens my eyes on what's really humanity. I like how you made love in a city, and being on a rooftop with her alone is kinda romantic. Spirit really made sense. Being a child in a tribe about to go into manhood made me smirk. I especially like what he said in the end. Daring was my favorite. Being a DAREdevil was awesome. I like how in the end, you see stars like when you're in the Arborecttom( I think thats a misspell). The soundtrack was also great. I fit the areas and zones in the game nicely. Overall, I think this will be a very good game.

P.S. Nice! I think I was first to ever review this because i did this the same day it was made!
