See how fast you fast you can destroy a vibrant young women with nothing more than a weapon available on every newsstand.

I made this as an interactive statement about the negative impact fasion magazines have on young women. But I also hope it's worth a laugh or two.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks.

It could be a list, but it fails as a game.

Not bad, Not good

this was ok, but the simple words and four or five phrases I got out of it were kinda stupid after a while. I didn't really like this at all, but then again you can't please every body you meet

Thanks for your comments. Yeah, I was going very simple here, but it could be I overshot the mark. Perhaps it's a bit too simple. Thanks for playing and taking the time to respond.

Missing the point

Hey. I really didn't like this one at all. First of all, I think it would have been better if it had been a movie and not a game. I get the point you're trying to make, but I don't think this is the way to make it. Secondly, despite your good intentions, this felt more like an attack on women than on periodicals. At least to me.

I'd also work on the animation and stuff. I know you were trying to send a message, but on the whole it came off as pretty boring and very plain. No music, very little sound, basic visuals, and limited "interactivity".


mgetty responds:

Thanks. I appreciate your comments. I guess in trying to add a little humor with the speech/thought bubbles it might seem like an attack on women. I think I want it on some level to be an attack on a certain mentality, but it might be difficult to attack that mentality without attacking the person.

Also, music and some more interactivity might help. I was trying to make this very simple, but maybe it's too simple.

Again, thanks for takign the time to leave a comment.

"Diet Water... what a great idea!"

I... well, I didn't exactly like it, but I see what you're getting at. I felt slightly unclean after playing this.

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I guess if this works, it's not really one you "enjoy." My hope is that it gives folks a chuckle at the same time it makes them think about a troubling issue. The combination might be a little creepy.

Thanks for playing, and thanks for the feedback.
