Rated 5 / 5 stars

An absolutely fantastic game. Never would I have imagined that a 4 kb submission would be so rich in content. The game in itself is simplistic - yet, it is enjoyable and addictive, but the real show stealer is in the story. I simply have no words to describe how hooked I was, how amazing the delivery and the writing was. I cannot spoil anything, I cannot say anything - simply, if you haven't yet, PLAY IT. Play it entirely.

No-one has to die is an experience worthy of the attention of everybody on Newgrounds, and I would not be surprised if it made it on Portal History for 2013. In fact, I wish for it and I hope it will, it is one of those short, yet breath-taking experiences, one of those big surprises that you can never really forget - the kind of game that truly deserves to be part of NG's very best (and one of the reasons I love this website, might I add).

Simple, effective, addictive, it is also yet another proof that there is no need for a huge, bloated flash, cutting-edge graphics, or overly-complicated gimmicks to create something that can be ultimately summed up in one word: "Amazing".

Great game and great story.
But I still tried hard to save Steve, it is too hard. How do you do it?

This game is amazing.
Mind blown, just mind blown.
I'm going to need a few days to fully understand what I just played.

This proves that great graphics isn't needed for a game to be called great. Anyways, my mind is soooo blown out!

Well, you don't see many good games about time paradoxes, but this is a prticularly neat one. I hope you'll make a sequel, the story is just amazing. The gameplay isn't much to talk about and isn't particularly challenging, but it's still pretty good and it's functional to the story. If you're planning on making a sequel, anyway, you might consider improving it. Meanwhile, you get a 5/5. Good job.
