This game was designed in under 48 hours for the Ludum Dare #25 Compo with the theme "You Are The Villain."

There are many ways to end the game, but for 100%ers there are 3 designer-directed endings. (As opposed to a player-directed ending, which is when you decide to stop playing of your own volition rather than because I send you back to the title screen.)

In order to see the truly villainous ending you will need to kill some innocents.

For me, this was about questioning what villainy really is. Does killing the people who killed your brother make you a villain? What about killing the people who were there to back them up? What about killing the others in their organization? What about killing a god? Where along that spectrum do you become a villain?

Thanks for playing!

not bad rate 4

I really enjoyed this game :) I am always a fan of art games, personally. The only real complaint I had was that the decisions didn't really go anywhere, other than killing innocents. I mean, you choose to serve or not, but it doesn't really effect the future of the game, other than ending it. Of course, I still really liked the game :)

Great storyline, and tricky decisions. Good 8-bit graphics, and easy controls. I love playing games like these; to test what choices are good and bad! I ended up killing the Lord of Heaven and the Lord of Hell... I have a big temper... 2 innocents... 33 deaths... WOW.

I liked this game! the story line was what drove me to play it again. the battle system was simplistic, perhaps too much so. the ability to move forward and backward, or a variation of attacks either from the player or enemy could make the battle more dynamic. Also a soundtrack could add so much to make the player get involved with the story. I love the mutliple storlines, the sounds were fun to listen to! Please make more!

I'm considering adding more features and polish to this game. The problem is that it was designed for a 48hr game design competition, so the code is all a huge house of cards. Adding new features or levels may make it all fall apart, so it would be somewhat tedious work to make the engine solid enough to integrate those new features seamlessly. Thanks for the feedback, though!
