I am very glad I have accumulated over 150,000 views, thats pretty darn cool, but I believe this cartoon is being misinterpereted. I was attempting to make a satire of a trend in consumerism, how products are being designed with "the customer in mind". I tried to expose the ridiculousness of how products are made to be so polite to the customer, with absurdly clear instructions, and easily navigable menus. I tried to create this illusion by presenting the game in a pleasent manner, with bright colours and cheerful music, etc. But the function of this "software" is to simulate your own death! That is pretty morbid and mildly disturbing. I figured the joke would be the irony of presenting the dark, content in such a ridiculous manner. I made the death animations far too slapstick, and that became the focus of the game. I am still happy so many people enjoyed it, and I am very happy because this is going to look pretty damn sexy in my portfolio, so keep playing and writing reviews.

Good but needs more..

Needs more options and perhaps a non-webcam mode for those without a webcam.

I suppose I could have added more options, but as for the people without webcams, I know it sucks for them, but the whole point of this was that I wanted to make something original, and if there was a non webcam mode, then it would be like one of those overdone "choose how to kill this guy" flashes. Anyways, thanks for the review.
