this game is just creepy


tolerateutolerateu

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not the worst thing ever

Here's what i find as a guideline for a game
1. Story: even though it was brief he was sorry for taking his brother's life to live his own
2. action: we actually control something
3. Entertaining: Something to keep us playing the game.
So, in my question, you have filled out the very basics for the game.

This is cool

I used to think newgrounds audience are progressive people with balls and brains who like to see someone experiement, but it turns out you guys can't even read the storyline. You are the boy's unborn brother-cell. This game rocks, its artistic! And it is simplistic because it was made for competition which gives you 48 hours to make complete game with all the content, but I guess this was made in even less. Nice work, its good when someone has an original concept and sticks to it!

WOW

for those whom don't understand,this game is about,a dead cell.eating its host body,the cell's brother(the the dead cell is that kid's brother understood??)first,it was only a cell,but from time to time,the cell grows by eating the host's(the kid)active cells & eating its flesh(or organs??)then until it grow big enough,the cell transformed into(NOT ALIEN!)some kind of mutated cell with human-like organs.AND,it has wings!(means it can fly!)
perfect for the pixel collection!

Began pretty cool at first, abnormally 'trippy'. THe flashing lights creeped me the fuck out. Good game over all, needs to be longer, love the little story it follows about the cell, and you should be able to play as the cell after you break free from your host.

Unique, without falling pretentious

A pretty good art kind of game. Started out a bit boring, with me wondering what was going on, but then as it progressed, the action appropriately increased, and the music (I'm calling it music) went for a crescendo. At the end, I was left thinking that the flash was actually pretty cool, and somewhat creepy, though it might have been better if you put a replay at the end instead of letting the music drone on and on to skewer ears. Maybe you intended that.

Graphics were fine, as far as pixels are concerned, and I liked how the thing just grew a face at the end, and the detail with the brother smiling at the beginning, and frowning at the end. Gameplay could have been...maybe tweaked, though the progression was almost perfect. I'd agree with what some other people said and make a mode where you get to come out and kill stuff, first dragging your bloodied self to a place to hide, and then feeding off clueless doctors and patients in the hospital or home.

Great job, though. I liked it.

"The theme is Greed" Pfft.

Ok, lets look at the context of the story. This player is reborn into the cell of some other human. The cell wants to, in context, become; and so in the process he kills off his host to get what he wants.

In other words, because he wanted it so bad, that he killed off his charitable host who let him live inside of him, so that he would regain his self.

Moral: Greed is ruthless, and bad. Yeah, that's real deep right there. I really got something out of that.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Creepy and intresting

This one really surprised me. I didn't expect things to turn out the way they did, and that's a good thing. Unpredictability is refreshing. My theory on this is that you're playing as some kind of parasitic twin that was absorbed into your brother and so you were never born. So you're trying to escape your brother's body by any means necessary, even if it means killing your own brother.

Very good game. I like these types of games that allow me to come up with these interpretations.

Good presentation

But there's no substance. What, exactly, is the player other than a parasite? The creature that escaped at the end looks anything but human. The theme is greed, but what is the message? Greed is bad and destructive? Sure, okay. But again, exactly what happened? If the player is reborn as a weird parasite that eventually bursts out of its host and kills it, who's to say that's greedy? Maybe that is the creature's nature to live exactly like that, and if it doesn't, than it will die itself. I'll bet that didn't slip into your humanocentric (and reasonable and justified) worldview.

Although the presentation was sharp, the content was lacking, and what content exists was uninteresting and confusing. Bad luck, Chuck.

I played this without any sound, kinda thankful for that, but at the same time not. I was pretty heavily unprepared for the end. Enough to not be able to bring myself to replay it (screw you too). You did an awesome job in the horror field, but everything else? The story, maybe good. I wouldn't call it an art game, not cr eative enough for that. I'd list it under "other"...Not much effort, probably not much creativity, but I'm giving this an 8, since this has to be the most disturbing thing I've seen all day... Ugh, everything about the last part, from the strobes to the thing inside of the guy shook me...


CodeMooseCodeMoose

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Interesting.

IMHO, the game tells many stories. I saw it as the tale of two twins, one consumed by the other in the womb. A single cell of the "dead" twin survives in the living twin, and as he consumes his brother to survive, his hunger and hatred grow. "Tucked behind a kidney and fat" was a big clue. I like the greed allgeory suggested by others, too, but I don't think there's any one right answer.

To the critics: shame on you. Shame on you for turning your pretentious nose up at this. So it doesn't spoonfeed you the answers to the questions it raises. Does it hurt? Does it hurt to think for yourselves? You simpletons could stand to do it far more often. God, listen to yourselves: "I didn't like this because you didn't explicitly tell me what I was supposed to infer from this. The amount of thinking you require is totally unreasonable!" Pathetic. What's wrong with leaving room for interpretation?

I liked what I saw. The mood was expertly created - going from being mellow and cruising around the body, to surreal brink-of-death panic. Bravo. Even so, several things could have made it better. It wouldn't have been hard to animate more internal organs, even just lungs and a stomach. Or, instead of an odd, motionless, melted-arm figure, how about having the guy actually living his happy-go-lucky life? Maybe walking down the street, laying in bed, then transitioning to an ambulance, and then a hospital. It tells more of a story. In the final scene, having a bunch of doctors and nurses around the hospital bed, waving their arms and screaming "OMFG" would have been a nice offset to the epileptic terror.

For these reasons, I give you 7/10, 4/5. Keep up the good work, bollocks to the fools voting 0.

What's not to get?

How are so many people going "lol wtf is this I dont get it roflrofl." Isn't it pretty obvious when it says "left to die in the flesh of my brother?" Like, c'mon. There aren't too many conclusions you can draw from that, even without seeing the ending.

Hardly a game.

OK, yeah, it's got a vague story and pixel art, which somehow qualifies it as an "artistic" game that people will say I'm some idiot for not getting.

This isn't art. It's just a poor game with a few lines of text that kind of implies it's some kind of parasitic cell that was an absorbed twin (which is a real phenomenon, although they generally don't turn into weird abominations that fly out of your chest), but is vague enough to leave it open for "interpretation."

Yes, you can get something out of this. But you know what? You can get something out of any story, that doesn't make it good. Compared to real games, the gameplay in this is terrible, and compared to real good works of art in other forms, the message here is weak.

Please use spellcheck next time

Interesting concept, though a bit underdeveloped. Also, since the concept relies so heavily on the short passages between each level the least you might have done was to make sure the grammar for some bits was right and 'existence' was spelled correctly.

I'm not usually a grammar Nazi but when the main theme of your game is spelled incorrectly there must be something wrong.

Not worth being called a game

I adore artistic games as much as the next person, I really do. They're some of my favourite kinds. This, however, was nowhere near artistic, nor a game. It was an interactive video at best, with almost no story what-so-ever.

It had a decent concept going for it, had you made it far, far more intricate, with a real story, rather than a select few words thrown together here and there. And gameplay that added to the story, drawing you into the potential artistic aspect.

As it stands, I can't rate this well, and I am sorry for that. I try to be fair.

Sound 0/10 : It was really just annoying, had you worked at it, it could've added to the game.

Music 0/10 : Same as sound.

Story 0/10 : You really did ruin any potential it may have had.

Gameplay 0/10 : What gameplay?

Overall 0/10 : Like I said, if you'd spent some real effort into, it could've been great. But, you didn't bother trying.

Okay...

For everyone who voted a really low score because of something like "I don't get it, you didn't spoon-feed me thoughts." Learn to think for yourselves, people. Anyway, the idea behind it is pretty insane, in a good way; I would truly be lying if I said otherwise. Except for the last part is kind of an example of too much too quickly. Was completely unprepared, and I really can't bring myself to play it again -_-

But, down to the low score. It was not because of the ending.
The message here is weak for a reason already stated by Milskidasith: real art conveys a message far better than pixel "art."
The story? Not all that intriguing. A real life phenomenon given pixel graphics and a strange winged insect(?) that shares it's morbid hatred with you. And speaks with horrible grammar at times.
The gameplay could have been a saving grace, but all this game had was a horror factor.
Call me a snot nosed critic who has no idea what I'm talking about, but this really isn't much of a game. It would be an interesting movie, if you could get away from pixels, but as it stands, it just isn't good.


oOkorobugOooOkorobugOo

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Frightening, but poorly conveyed.

Honestly, the concept of this game did not appeal to me at all, but at the same time I had that, "I must go on" feeling. The ending pretty much horrified me and I almost want to go back to see what would happen if I had lost at the end, but I'm still frightened by the thought of it, maybe later XD

I don't agree with people marking low due to no story, which in a sense it has none, it was more of the feeling, though I could be completely missing the storyline myself, I just don't think it really needs one.

The damn thing is still confusing me, I thought it was something about cancer at first, then a parasite, and at the end I had absolutely no idea what was going on, just that I in no way liked it or wanted the answer.

I'm a horrible critic so I'm giving you a six :P and though I think the idea of it was great, it would be far better if you could improve the graphics a little and make it a bit more like a game then... whatever that happened to be.

This game reminds me of those alien horror movies where a person gets infected with larva, and then at the right moment that person shreds into pieces as the alien emerges. Well I really don't have anything to say about this except what it reminded me of, well it is kind of scary in a way.

yknow, if it were less confusing....

dude, i got what u wanted to sai from the moment u started using the word brother, it made it clear to me what u were saying. it IS a great work, even though some ppl rated it low because they didnt understood what the game was talking about. what i have to complain is the ending, the black or red screen after the ending to be more precize. u should have especified somethings like how many endings or wich ending u found, and a restart button.
FOR THE PPL WHO DIDNT UNDERSTOOD WHAT IT WAS TALKING ABOUT: its the history of twin brothers, and one of them didnt envolved, and became only but a cel on his brothers body. for this game, that cell had the thinking capacity of a human being. and i found 2 endings.

meh...

Ok, some good, some bad.

Good- Perhaps not the intended metaphor, but I see this as a representation of both human nature and nature itself. We kill the world for our own gain (meat, wood, water, etc) In addition to that, nature itself wants nothing more then to survive, so it fights us back. More, we as humans have a natural propensity to want to keep our individual selves alive, one man would kill a hundred if they threatened his existance. But thats just what I got from it.

Bad- The controls. For some reason the little guy(?) you play as started to move in singel directions until it hit a wall, and I couldn't move it in any other direction until after waiting for a bit to "regain" control. Was that intended? If it was it didn't do anything but frustrate me. Making sure your controls work properly is a VERY important part of making a game.

Scared me

I like the simplicity and concept of the game. The brief dialogue and little gameplay gives just enough for me to imagine an entire scenario. I'm not the kind to be told a story; I like figuring it out on my own.

I especially like how fast and desperate it gets at the end. In the first "levels" everything is low and calm, and as the parasitic being grows the gameplay moves faster, the colors change, and even the little pixel dude looks scared. Man, when the game started flashing, it scared me pretty bad. It's a good thing I don't have epilepsy.

Shook me up but good.

now this is something else. starts out nice and slow and has you wondering. i like how the story only gives away snippets at a time and lets you reconstruct and interpret the rest. sure the gameplay's repetitive, it's a vehicle for the concept so why should it be so complex as to draw attention away from the message?
played through it three times, twice to get both endings and once more just for another look at the thing spreading its wings...literally. my heart is still pounding from the sheer horror, along with the screeching music and strobe lights. heavy-hitting.

still, a little more polish on the design (animation, story presentation) would make it all the more poignant.

SkysanSkysan

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

From what I can tell....

This game is confusing, no matter what approach or form of understanding you use. Your character, is a virus. A forgotten cell that appears to be sentient and quite possibly related to the body it's floating around in, seeing as several times it's talks about Oh brother, yada yada yada.

Aside from that, I really can't make heads or tails of this game. After you kill the host and the screen goes red, a number of things could be happening that are all unrelated to the game... but maybe, next time, just give us a "Congrats. You Won" game over screen when we reach the end? I hate cliffhangers and this is a prime example of where we don't know what is going on or why.

and no Gaming-Guru. I agree with you. Limited art and a nonsense, makes little sense plot makes it just a time waster, but not at all entertaining or artistic. At least that is what I think.

I'm sick of games that try to be artistic by picking an odd theme, being deliberately confusing, giving it a pixelated look and making damn sure it's not fun to play in any way. This is a boring waste of everybody's time. It is not art. It does not provoke any emotions except for boredom and slight anger at its uselessness. It is not new, it is not entertaining, it is not good.
There are flash games that can do this, but like any hype everybody that just jumps on the bandwagon will fail, and this is a prime example of failure.

Well done,

I must admit that this is a well done game with a good theme that obviously some people are having a hard time grasping. Please don't listen to them because even if they are too "slow-minded" to understand, I suppose I do. And I accept the consequences of possibly angering everyone that last statement applied to, but it's the truth. The theme, in my eyes, is that a man/woman lost their life and was given a second chance at life. Though this "life" was given an artificial beginning inside of their brother's body. Like a parasite, they thrived off of their sibling's body and in one scene even somewhat "thanked" their brother for this new semblance of life. Later on, the being asks a paradox that's been going on for centuries of "why would a divine deity give us a life and purpose if we are only meant to die in the end?" Of course this being thrives and grows further and ends up becoming their brother's death, but they themselves are given a new life. As for the gameplay, "artistic" games such as this are the only types of games that can really get away with such simplistic and repetitive controls. So, based on the "genre" this game is applying to, I feel the creator did a nice job on the game.

Incredible message.

I don't think many people understand what this is actually about. From what I've gathered, isn't this when there's twins or something, and one of them grows inside the sibling? They're either removed or the host (sibling) dies. I thought this flash, while short and simple, bore an incredible message from the perspective of the parasitic sibling. I would like to let you, the author, know that I understood what was happening throughout your flash and I completely appreciate it. I give you a 9/10 and a 5/5 for your striking, yet controversial message from the perspective of a parasite. The only real con was the bit of confusion...something along the lines of fuckand cunt shitpig? I didn't really understand that, but...I got the rest. Brilliant flash.

Terrifying in Simplicity

(warning - review contains spoilers)
Its rare the game that can truly evoke an emotion. These days the indie gaming circuit tends to err towards the positive, leaning on implied wonders or softly understated but no less poignant messages of hope, love, and family to be told in between the gaps left by pixels and lo-fi artwork.
So in this case, its been rarer still that this type of game would fall into the 'horror' genre.
This isn't the horror we're used to. Its not gory, or graphic - the gigantic pixels could just barely convey the boy that our character spends the majority of the game inside of. It isn't suspenseful, nor does it jump out at you from the corners - the environment and the framing stays familiar the entire time. The game's not even particularly dark - save the text panels, the entire screen is a wash of saturated yellows and reds.
But this game is more truly horror than many of the games claiming to be the genre, even in the most advanced system today.
The pacing and text work together masterfully to create the slowly dawning realization of what exactly is happening, what the pixels we're staring at are supposed to represent, and what exactly it is we've been doing as we've been moving an indistinguishable mass of pulsating dots around the screen.
Its a terror on a classic, Lovecraftian level - the realization in the end that it is US that is the monster...US that is slowly eating an innocent and faultless child from the inside out, US that (if the correct ending is chosing) will come bursting from poor child's still living body, shrieking like a thing from nightmares - and it was all enabled by us. Our actions. Our keystrokes and button-pushes.
In the end you are left shaken, stunned by what has happened or(depending on the ending) what could have happened.
The graphics work. The "less is more" approach has been taken and used to great effect - if the art had been any more complex, any less abstract, the game would not have struck home as powerfully as it has done here. The terror is left to our imaginations, in our knowledge of what is being represented, and in a way, nothing could possibly be more graphic.

In the field of games, a game like this will no doubt be nothing but than a blip - a brightly flashing blip that people will remember. But as many indie games do, it serves to pave the way for others ahead, breaking down barriers for what is possible to convey in games, and expanding the field. So a blip yet, but an important blip nontheless.
And that's something to be truly covetous of.

Good attempt at an &quot;art game&quot;, but not that good

At first I thought it was some cancer killing the cells of the body, spreading and becoming bigger. But its some kind of scary mind-fucking sentient jealous cell?? Confused...

I would say this a good attempt at an "art game", but like other games of these sort, it falls into the trap of becoming overrated, over-indulgent and pretentious. However, it doesnt matter doesnt it, because any game that is pixelated, weird, have a strange kind of "plot" and really not a game at all is gonna be praised as an "art game" and given 10/10 scores.

I saying this because I don't like it when people give full scores just because something is pixelated and different. As much as I find this "game" quite interesting, I can't give it a high score because I played better games, and this game didn't really invoke much emotion or deep thought from me, like how a good "art game" should do.

That said, I give you props for originality, simplicity, decent story-telling and at least capturing my interest. *SPOILER SENTENCE* I liked the way you did the ending, suddenly creepy and frightening, rivaling horror films.

Good try. Though it takes more than a pixelated look, soliloquoy, a lack of gameplay and some kind of plot that most people won't understand easily to make a great art game.

Stem Cell Research: The game

A sentient life-form miraculously given new life to develop as a new human being, the atrocious use of stem-cells that could very well be used to create new life, used greedily to restore the health of already living person.
This game was very artsy, and quite creepy. It signifies what could very well happen sometime in the future of stem-cell research, when a cell has the will to live instead of die as another worker in the host.

Creepy, to say the least.

At first I though it was about a cancer. You know : cells that should die but multiply instead. The brown spots you left in the body comforted me in that idea. But I was obviously wrong after some screens.

Sounds fit perfectly. The overall style (the way you switch between black screens and the simple artwork) is adequate.

I would have liked some kind of explanations after that. Because it could mean anything in its current state. But it is a common point in the games of this kind I suppose.

This game disturbed me on a very VERY deep level. There's this theory that everyone, in utero, has a twin. Before we're born, one of the twins gets, essentially, eaten. Assimilated into organs for the surviving brother. The idea that this twin brother has become sentient is just mindblowing. Believe me, I'll never play this game again.

I actually have two theories for this game.How we just consume and consume until we get what we want,Or to consume and in the end give it all back. It shows weather we are greedy or kind.To realize ones self is to focus on your own action.This game was very well made.But a little too short.

so this is like one of those twins that gets consumed by the brother in the womb but the consumed brother doesn't die it thrives in the host brother and eventually
kills him. I saw a documentary once where a person had a tumor and the doctors found an eye ball and some teeth in it. Nice came but could have been better

Creepy

Quick rundown of my thoughts as I played this game for the first time:

-ok, so I collect these dots. What's this supposed to be?
-so I'm a cell... wtf am I eating?
-WTF I'm a tumor?
-ok no am I a baby?
-OMG THE DEMON TUMOR BABY IS FORCING ITS WAY OUT! *cold chill runs down spine*
-*plays it again just to be sure*

Artistic merit, maybe? Surely the philosophical musings of a sentient cancer could be considered art. Avante garde, non-mainstream art to be sure but art nonetheless.

Wow. Just. Wow. Even now I'm not sure if I should put a 0 or a 10 so I'm gonna split the difference....

Its a game of moral choice

At first it seems innocent, as you grow you wish to live, and at the end, you have to make a choice: destroy your host so you can live, or do nothing, wither away and die, so you don't deny what you wanted to begin with. I've played this three time, and most people will instinctively rip him apart, but if you take to time to ignore it, let yourself die, you get alternative ending. Very fascinating and strange, reminds me of fetus in Fetum, a very rare disorder where a fetus will start developing in the fetus of the main child, usually dead when born, you become living coffin of sorts. One rare example showed that fetus in fetum actaully had heart beat, though lack a brain and other organs. One case with child also show it would keep growing with you, when they remove it, it had long black hair, shrivel body.

A strange chill...

Is what this game gives me. I give you kudos for what this game is about. I've never played a game that was so simple, but so chillingly moving at the same time. However, I cannot deny the simple nature of this game. The message was delivered, but the manner in which it was conveyed was simply unimpressive. With only movement controls and the repetitive goal of "collect the dots" made it hard for me to force myself to play to the end. Even then, both ends to the game are anti-climactic. You couldn't even add a "The End" to it? I found myself giving a sigh of disappointment/irritation when I came to realize how unfulfilling the game was. Long story short: I've never played a game that literally sent chills down my spine like this one did. I just find myself disappointed that such a great message came in such a poorly written letter.

Fuck you. You don't understand the actual concept of the game, and there IS one.
The desire to exist, and live is big enough in the smallest organism's to completely destroy the one they live in. The greed that one feels to live is stronger than the emotion of not wanting to kill your host.

I played this last night at 2 in the morning and to be honest, it scared me shitless, probably because I was alone.

But I played the game again today and found the other ending. The ending that does not result in a red screen. And to be honest, I thought that was the strongest one. I won't ruin it, but this was very well thought out. Though simple, this game is very good. Excellent job.

Either way, I'll have a lot to think about today - more than I already wanted to, but more nonetheless. Makes me question if everything feels as if it has a choice, or maybe if everything desires to live and if everything also desires for their loved ones to live in their stead.

Interesting.

I think this is a very interesting concept for a game! Short, but powerful. I remember watching documentaries about people who were born with their undeveloped twin or sibling inside them. That sibling usually ended up causing some sort of problem, sapping nutrients and growing like a cancer. Actually, when the game first started, I thought it was about cancer. But I suppose both run along the same lines.

Anyway, I thought it was great. I've never seen a game, artsy or not, based off of this concept before.


godhammergodhammer

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Disturbing, captivating

My one problem with thee game is that it starts terribly slowly. But it picks up fast and quickly pulls the player into the bizarre story. The visuals are powerful for their simplicity and certainly stunning considering how few colors are used. Easy to grasp, easy to understand, but not easy to stop playing. Once started, the player simply must finish to see how it ends, and giving the player two endings is also surprisingly effective. Most players I imagine would go for the end of destruction, but the other ending is equally if not more thought provoking. Certainly deserving of praise.

Anyone else just imagine the battle with Giygas while playing this? I sure did. Creepy and well worth playing through to see the end(s). You've surely captivated me with this game. It was so creepy and fascinating, though a little slow to start. Regardless of that, I had to force myself to play even though I was slightly frightened by the sudden turn of events that was going on. Great game. I played it twice just because it was so great, and the alternate ending was fabulous.

Hm...

Reminded me of Giygas for some reason, maybe the whole embryo thing. Giygas was still creepier though. I liked this, though I didn't see the meaning in it until I realized you can choose the ending. The fact that actual meaning can be drawn from pondering the idea portrayed by this game makes it worthwhile. That's really just what this is, an idea, and it's okay for what it is. My only criticisms are 1) That one incomprehensible line of profanity, I don't think that helped convey much - I certainly didn't get it (Is he confused or fearful to the point where he can't utter a proper sentence or were you just trying to go for something strange?) 2) More creative graphics, let each image represent as much as it can. Other than those things, I think the game's concept was great, it portrayed a very sudden, intense, and horrifying situation.

At first, this horrified me. A lot. Especially when things started to get chaotic. So, I instinctively ripped the guy apart to make it stop. My lord.

Then I played again, and got the other ending, and thought about it. This is... I don't even know how to describe it. It's bizarre, and horrifying. In the good way. It is also very powerful.

I'm just sorta sitting here with a shocked expression, now. I liked it, alot. I sorta like how the message is basically shoved in your face, but you still have more to think about at the end.

I'm still horrified. This one's going to be haunting me.

interesting...

im startin to see more of these... i wouldnt call it a game but its an interactive message. some people would rather let their minds melt through their ears than even begin to comprehend that games can serve a purpose and a meaning, not jus senseless violance.

but aside from that yes the game is rather eerie as you take the role of a "parasite" and it is your choice as to either consume the host or to allow him to live (although at that point i dont believe there to be much left of the host). that alone doesnt bring the climax. your choice of words had brought the parasite to life and you can connect with it and almost percieve its emotions in the matter. that may also explain why people are threatend or offended by this....

This game makes you wonder: is it really worth the effort to survive if surviving means causes someone else to suffer?

Where other people fail at properly interpreting this game is by assuming that it's trying to convey some sort of deep message, which I can understand, until the end of the game, when I realized that it definitely wasn't. There is no way that FUCK YOU CUNT AND EAT PIGSHIT/ can be taken seriously, so I don't know why they tried to take it seriously.

But until that point, I was very, very bored. Thankfully it's a short enough game to where I decided to play through it anyways.

For me, it was a quick game, good for a quick laugh, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Spectacular

A wonderful game that has a very strong artistic presentation. Art is art when it moves you. Good art is when it moves every viewer in a unique way.

The way I see it, you play a cell leftover from conception, which never matured. Sometimes in our desire to exist we end up unknowingly consuming others in the process. In this case very gruesomely.

In fact this flash says a lot of things, but I'm not going to spend the whole review preaching.

For all those that hate this flash, it's not about graphics, sound, or story. I urge you to play it again and think about what you feel.

That's what art is for.

Well....

This game has nothing to offer entertainment-wise so, to be fair, I can only really judge it off of its message.

The flash is suppose to be questioning the player's value of existence, if there was one to begin with, and I feel like it's getting too much praise for what it's worth. Even though the amount of how profound something is completely up to the person, I feel like questioning "existence" is probably the most overused philosophical topic, and that this flash didn't really does anything to ask the question in a compelling way.

No soup for you.

What's The Point

This game does not really have any skill to it. All you have to do is collect things inside the boys body. The only real action is at the end when you have to press the left and right key pads fast. If there was more of that action and you thought of more stuff to do in it, then it would be good. What i did like was the pixel graphics and i guess i did want to see what happened at the end because for some reason it kept me hooked from start to end. I don't really see what the point of this game is.

All in all, it was a good experience

I couldn't say the opposite. However at first I was excited at the idea, that you created an art flash game that would depict Cancer. Believe me, it would be a much granter success to bear such a concept instead of an alien/siamese twin fetus

Graphics were... well... bad. No... I mean awful. Sound too. You could have at least looked up a midi or have made one. this is not (by what I judge always) excusable since you can see other people putting their best, not only into turning an idea into a game/flash vid... but turning it into a great game/flash vid

of course this can be seen in your score which could have easily hit a 4 if you paid attention to graphics, sound and last but certainly not least, gameplay

I must say that the score I give to you goes solemnly to your concept and because I wish to encourage you to create more... but consequently, better ;)!

I hope this review was worth taking the trouble to read it, and that in the end, it did give you some tips on what to move to next :)!

I just couldn't stand all the ignorance... UNGH! Does anyone here READ? At least the author comments? It's obviously made for a competition, which generally impose some kind of restriction. After some devastating netsurfing (first hit in Google for Ludum Mini-Dare), I found out it's a tough 48-hour limit. You make it from scratch, and other people set the theme.
So yeah, he "fast tracked" it. DUH...
And epilepsy... how many epileptic people would actually play a game? ANY game? So far all manuals I laid my hands upon contained a seizure warning. If you're epileptic it might even be a generally good idea to stay away from computers totally. Sometimes the display can do funny stuff. Not to mention certain ADS that flash around whether you want it or not, so giving a bad review because of that is absolutely pointless.
SO, considering the "making-of" procedure, I thought it was a damn good game. Put that nasty feeling into my guts. Not because I'm afraid something's gonna hatch out suddenly, just a sort of malaise. Made me uncomfortable I guess? So good job, and don't listen to these ignorant jackasses...

My ears...

There is a lot wrong with this. The sound itself made me put my computer on mute. It is so irritating, and, just...ugh. Also the flashing colors could send someone into a fit. Some warning would be great. I've played games that didn't need the warning, but they had them because at some point the colors flashed. On top of that, the graphics were bad. It was just funny to look at. I know art is subjective, and there is a lot of "art" that is intentionally not aesthetic, but this game put that into another level of bad.

Outside of that, there was no real guide for the player to know what the heck to do. All instruction that is given is to use the arrow keys to get around. When I first played through this, I just wandered around the first level trying to figure out what to do. Do I avoid the heart, do I hit it, do I avoid the dots, do I go for them? There needs to be some direction, some kind of guide for the player.

The concept was interesting, although rather irritating. Is it cancer? Is it a twin that got absorbed? I'm leaning towards the twin idea... maybe. What the cell has to say, however, did bother me, but I will assume that was the point.

Over all, this game gets a 3. I'm sure you can do a lot better, at least with the sound.

The subtlety of it is why it works, you know. That itching anxiety. It's the idea of the thing, planted in your head, to fester. That's what's most awful and why this flash is so great. 10/10, 5/5.

I find the game graphics to be something out of the atari and the music was awful. The sounds effects were beyond piss poor and the guy (if you can call IT that) is nothing more than a chicken body with a human head and it is butt ugly. The music loops over and over and over and... The game took all of a minute to play and seriously i have no friggin idea what was going on till the end. The ending SUCKS without a question. I would be surprised if it didnt give some1 a seizure. I do not have any idea what you tried to make here other than a complete failure.

Terrifying, and brilliant.

It might just be me but I've always found 8 bit graphics substantially more frightening than realistic models. This 'game' was suspenseful, dark and ultimately bone chilling. The horrible, perverted invasive feeling of having your body slowly taken over and destroyed by some malevolent internal force is ever present, and all the more frightening as you yourself gradually lead it to its dark work. Well done sir.

DsilusionDsilusion

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I thought it was cancer, initially

Other than that, though, this was really chilling.
The parasitic twin idea has always been shit-scary, and its nice to see a game being made around the concept.
The only thing is, I didn't really get what the little dude was supposed to be every time he changed. He sort of looked like a fetus right before the end (creepy-ass visuals there, by the by, straight out of Alien), but the rest of the time was kinda indeterminate.
I like how it begins slow, but then sort of speeds up almost exponentially (which has the added bonus of distracting us from the repetition), and the changing expressions on the brother's face was a nice touch.
Something a little creepier that could have been done, maybe, was making the twin take him over, instead of do that Alien shit and explode out of him, but this way is still shit-scary.
My only concern is that this was on the short side, even for something that is essentially interactive fiction, and was really quite repetitive.
Wait, no, I lied, there's another concern, that being that I almost had a seizure there at the last bit. For reals, those flashing lights are deadly-dangerous.

4/5, 8/10

Meh...

It's good, and I understand it was made quickly, but this still isn't anything exciting. It'd be better as a movie, frankly.

The story tries to be interesting and clever, but fails on both counts due to its length. There's really not much to this game other than collecting a few dots and reading a bit of text; it really could have more to it, even for a short game.

Having said that, it's an interesting diversion.

TrueReviewTrueReview

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Made me think so much.

I like this a lot. Something about it just draws me in to play it a few times. The music and atmosphere is just so well done. Even though the slowness at the beginning is annoying, I think it sets the mood of something small inside slowly brooding. The larger it gets, the more it takes in and the more it does. But in that first stage it seems so small and so inconsequential.

Also I played it a few times just to pay more attention to details I might have missed (especially in the last few scenes). I decided to do something different at the end then I normally did. Instead of going back and forth on the arrows (I don't want to give it away) like you normally do. What it said when you don't made me think about myself. Instinctively I fought against the timer each time. I knew I had to beat it, without a single thought as to not actually doing that. Then the one time I decided not to and what it said made me think about how naturally (as with im assuming most people who played this) didn't even THINK about having a choice.

I don't know if you even thought about it that deeply when creating it. But I think it shows a lot about human greed. Or rather human greed to live. There was no choice at the end in my head the first few times. I just had to beat the timer. When really there was. I think you may have intentiionally or unintentially stumbled upon a deep rooted greed of the human mind. The will to live at all costs.

If you didn't think about it that deeply, about the choice people will inexplicably choose without thinking about the consequences, then maybe you yourself felt the same way. But if you did realize all that in the creation, then you are a genius. Either way, you brought something very deep to the table, at least for me personally.

[DO NOT READ ON UNLESS YOU HAVE PLAYED THE GAME - POSSIBLE SPOILER]

I love the two endings. How it just ends for both. One is color and sound. The other is just nothing. But only one choice shows the life form as rational and forgiving. The other just shows the life form as a monster. It almost begs the question, "at what cost is it worth to live?" Bravo. I never expected something this small would make me think this much. Whether you expected that, or just wanted to create something creepy, I do not know. Either way you accomplished it. Thank you.

I'm all for games with a message.

I'm all for games with a message, and I'm all for games that shy away from the norm. However, this game gave me the feel of a 10 year old that doesn't quite understand what he's making. Instead, he tries to copy those that have been successful, without understanding the purpose. Then, he puts flashy lights in, and calls it a revolutionary game.

Now, you can say that I don't understand this, etc etc. Really, all I saw in this game was a mediocre attempt to show some flaw of mankind. I saw very minimal art (Pixels. Literally, pixels.) and minimal work put into it (Literaly, all there was; collision detection and some flashy lights.)

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Rather Weak

Most "deep" and "thought provoking" work requires the viewer to be given something to work with. For a work to be subject to interpretation, more information needs to be given. All I saw here were pixels eating (I think that's what's happening) other pixels. In addition to what yoman1013 said, anyone who attempts to interpret this game is simply trying too hard, because (and this is the most important part) the game itself (if you could even call it that) is pretty half-baked. In other words, while the game is "original", it's proof that "original" doesn't always mean "good".

I have to agree with an earlier post. I didn't think that i could by frightened by pixels.. that was amazing for a game that was start to finish worth 90 seconds of game play.
The progression of the story [the 90 second story] and the execution, how we the audience changed from "What's this?" to "Oh my God!! What IS THAT!!? Is.. is it over?" just spectacular. I mean those other prudes could have appreciated this game. They didn't give it any thought. A bunch of Justin Beiber fans I'm sure.

very interesting : D

Nice game, it was artistic and had a good story
For people who doesn`t understand the story:
You start as a cell that is inside your twin brother body, seeing you didn`t have a chance to grow apart from your brother you start to eat the nutrients that you find in your brother body, cells then organs. As you grow inside your brother you start to develop rage and hate towards him and when you get strong and big enough to come out of your brother body, you do it.
P.S: There are cases in real life of Conjoined twins that have one twin that didn`t get to grow apart in the womb, so they grow inside of their twin brother getting nutrients from their blood (they don`t have a Conscience so they just grow inside their brother), This usually cause illness or even death of the twin that did grow up.

I liked it.

It made me think. Not hard, not deeply, but it did give me something to chew on. I certainly believe this is valid as a game. The "game" part is very loosely interpreted, but it is still a game. It has a the three things a game NEEDS. Interactivity, a Goal, and Rewards. Every game has these three things in some shape, and you know a developer has talent when they can place it in a small package like this.

I liked this, but it will never be a ten. I imagine you chose the pixelated style on purpose, and it wasn't a bad choice, but there is no way that style could get you a ten. I can't connect, even if he does grow to look like a human. Not to mention this game isn't very interactive. Move here, eat this, move there eat that. That's it.

It was good. You should feel accomplished.

I Can't Say Much For The Music... But...

What makes this entry interesting and notable was that you put us in the perspective of parasitic entity with a life cycle that consists of feeding on a human host during larval stages, and hatching out of human like a cocoon during adult stage. The twist is that the creature is not only sentient, but it possesses a conscience. In other words, your artistic entry manages to humanize a monster archetype that has since captured the nightmares of science-fiction horror enthusiasts, the chest-buster. I like how the creature has the desire the live, yet is caught between the sadistic choice between killing off it's nurturing host to be born into the world as a monster, or, letting the host live at the cost of its own existence.

Hmm.

I loved Looming, and Pixevo. I'm a big fan of the pixelated art story telling genre. But this didn't seem like a fantastic piece of work- There's plenty of art out there that aren't quite as good as what's out there, and this is one of those kind of games, that isn't quite as good as the others. And it seems like a lot of people are making this game out to be a great, fantastic novel or something, out of a few phrases to go along with the games theme.
This isn't a very good game, but I wouldn't say a total waste. At the same time, something like this should be really, really improved on if it deserves to be on the front page. I think a lot of people made this out to be more than it is. Any one could create something like this given a day, so I have my doubts that this deserves its place. However, arguments over art and games are pretty fruitless endeavors- I just think this game doesn't truly deserve what it's gotten.

Rendered speechless.

I found this disturbing, compelling and brilliant. I had to play it through a coupla times, though, just to make sure I got it right. This reminds me a bit of some old bizarre horror text-based adventures with bmp-pictures of animaloids and asylums to set ambience, leaving me with no clue what to do except for wanting the mental image out of my head, thus forcing me to finish the game. I was speechless and felt sick after playing the game, and now I'm just feeling kinda ill. That's quite the effort from a game this size.

It reminds me of the term "Parasitic twin".

TheLastWatanagashiTheLastWatanagashi

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Minimalist, more psycological than anything.

And for you people who don't get the story--the tiny twin cell, consumed at conception by it's brother, becomes self-aware.

It knew that to grow, to claim the life that was rightfully it's, it had to feed. It has to take back from it's brother what had been borrowed--with interest. It begged for forgiveness, and loved it's brother for the sacrifice. At the same time, it knew that it's brother was denying it existence, and it hated him for it.

At the pivotal moment, you are given a choice. Consume the host and burst free, or relinquish your tentative hold on life. And either way, someone was going to lose. It was no one's fault, just a cruel circumstance, but one or the other has to die.

This game reminds me of the condition called, "The parasital Twin" The first twin lives, but as a fetus in the womb it absorbs the other twin. When growing up, or either noticeble at birth, the twin that was absorbed shows itself, and it feeds on its twins life energy. The parasital twin is always unable to live on its own. Just though I'd mention that! Haha it's a disturbing game.

Mhmm...

For those that do not understand it, the main character has been given a second chance. But he is inside of his brother, he then begins to consume his brother slowly because of his greed and will to live. He eventually becomes bigger and bigger until he is about the size of a child and tears out, killing his brother, and most likely being in a hospital, making him look like a monster.

The only thing I disliked about it were the flashing lights. =P

So these are the games making it on the front page..... I never knew absolute crap could actually find it's way to the front page, but this and a ton of other games have been posted there because they have 6's and 7's.

Maybe I've been mistaken, maybe this poor pile of pixels puked out by a poor creator counts as something entertaining to people nowadays.

1) Half of the screen is completely black, making officially 50% of the game absolutely unplayable
2) Music. Get some. Six monotonous sounds don't count.
3) Please, a game is designed to entertain people, not piss them off.

Painful

The concept was interesting, but the constant looping audio was downright painful and made me eager to finish every 'level' just to get rid of it. As for the game play itself, a concept like that could have been interesting if it had decent art or at least some sort of conclusion or story payoff. generally, I wasn't the slightest bit impressed, I'm afraid.

Looked like an attempt at games as art. It was all right, controls worked fine, though the concept was pretty creepy. The 'music' was extremely annoying to the point I turned off my sound until I was done with the game, so I'd recommend something better than that next time. And really to be honest it wasn't much of a game, but it wasn't horrible either, so it gets a 6. Sorry if this review is kind of scatterbrained.

This is what life is. There is no escaping the fact that to live is to consume. If that is greed, then we will all be forever guilty.

I agree with Rokker93. You have to remember that story is only 1/4 of the presentation. While the story was there, that was about all.

Try again, sorry!


IdeawizardIdeawizard

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

simple and profound

It is a hard but rewarding process to create complex moral and scientific concepts and break them down into things that are both simple and understandable. It is even harder to try to make a fun and engaging video game out of said concepts. you seem to do all of this quite nicely.

This is the kind of thing that should have been on the NES but wasn't, as it probably would be seen as too obscene and be banned like Death Race. I mean this not in a way to insult, of course, but to compliment on the aspects of the game that make it engaging, controversial, and pleasantly disturbing. This is a horror video game.

But it is not survival horror per se, although it does involve the survival of a living being. This is a game that forces you to look through the eyes of a malignant living being that does what it does to live another day. Its like looking through the eyes of a habitual serial killer or a natural pedophile. It is very grotesque, but it puts a very poignant recognition of the conflict between the host's right to be healthy and the parasite's right to live and exist.

but at the same time, one cannot be stupid. The creature is like a pest that needs to be swatted before it re-multiplies. There should be no qualms about arresting child molesters and murderers, and there should be no qualms about eliminating and being frightened of malicious internal organisms. This thing is like the facehugger from Alien and the cockroach from under the fridge. Catering to it will lend no reward. You will only have more of these things eating your toaster strudels in the morning and an alien baby erupting from your stomach. Need I say more?

Like the Nazi conscripts who served Tyranny in the 1940s, this monster is the type of thing that needs a shotgun blast to the head, if only as to not create any more harm to those around it. A utilitarian approach to these moral debates is sometimes the best option. Like the Nazis, it serves an unforgiving master that needs to be overcome; mainly, evil itself, but will do only harm if not also overcome.

The real tragedy here and the thing that establishes the true horror is the fact that the host is as human as you or me. This makes it all the more real, as it becomes increasingly clear that the person is becoming less then well as you begin to grow within his/her confines.

But what really confuses this wizard is this; is or was the creature human? Are we talking about an alien parasite from beyond or a human undeveloped twin that mutated in order to survive? I know you remain unclear so as to remain in perspective, but a simple back-story in the author's comments would be a great clarification technique. Just a brief overview with that information would do.

Anyway, it is a phenomenal use of 8-bit graphics mixed with an engaging plot and an even better perspective and a great atmosphere. I can't even knock on the low quality of the animations because it's irrelevant.

Nicely done!

Scared the ever living crap out of me.

I'm ALMOST positive what I just played. I think the man and the little parasite were twins in the womb, and it was one of those rare cases where the dominate sibling absorbs (or "eats") the other. In these cases, the "eaten" sibling dies before birth. I think this was if that happened without the second fetus dying in the first twin.

kind of poetic.

as far as the storyline goes, its pretty damn meaningful, the unborn parasite given another chance to steal existence and become what was taken from him once before.
but the storyline is only part of a game.
you need graphics, gameplay, and feel to the game, and this was primarily storyline, and therefore, it sucks.

May I be right if I say it was about cancer? Atleast that what hit me. Though I've yet to finished the game, that will remain my theory for now. I though it was strong, perhaps because someone I hardly knew, but was in my school, lost his mom to cancer. I like it. Not as a game. I just like it.

Distrubing

After playing this game the first time, I simply had to play it again. And again. Even though I agree with many other reviews claiming this is not a game, I don't see it having the same effect on me if it was just a movie.

The whole thing inspired me to write a song with the same title, using some of the in-game text for the lyrics. The entire thing was stuck in my mind for quite a while, and still is (and probably will be for some time yet).

Very good job with this, too bad many people are too stupid to understand what it's about.

A Different Side

This gave me the chills after the third or fourth level. At first I was a bit confused but then I understood it was a parasite or something like an alien growing inside of the guy. The host kept getting sadder and sadder throughout the levels. The game became a bit more angry and overwhelming for the eyes as it progressed too.I enjoyed the dialogue from the parasite, interesting existence.

I would have to say it was an ok game considering there was nothing after the last level. But I could not die, lame really.

oh and flashing lights are VERY unpleasant for some of us, a warning would be appreciated.

Could also be good as a comic

Well, I think the affect would've also been good if it would be a well-drawn comic.

The problem here are the graphics. The gameplay is alright, but with better graphics you would certainly need different controls.

Anyway. I think you choose that style totally on purpose. You wanted to express the evilness of the whole story. Oh and that was the part that was worth playing it:
You wrote it very well, very emotional, very philosophical.
You are sick. This game is sick.
You (maybe) handled something very horrible that happend to you or a friend of yours with this. So you have my respect.

Oh and pls put a warning there. Some might need it very badly.

P.S.:
I liked it that at the end, you understood that after you started to be obsessed with sth., you may lost control over it and not be able to stop it, until everything collapses. Yay for that.

Attn: Everyone

I really wish the site's administration would follow up on its promise to delete the accounts of zero-voters who offer no constructive criticism.

I'm going to offer an attempt to help people understand a few things about games like this in general, i.e. games as a medium for art: it is IDIOTIC to play something like this and low-score it for a reason such as "the graphics weren't good."

By that world-view, no game without good graphics can possibly be any good, right? And the better the graphics are, the better the game? That world-view is everything that is wrong with gaming right now.
I'm pretty sure he KNOWS the graphics aren't good, and for all I know, he may have chosen an 8-bit rendering out of utter laziness, who cares? The bad graphics weren't RELEVENT. They gave the scene a certain style that WASN'T MEANT to be realistic. Not everything has to be fucking Modern Warfare.

Yes, story is only one element of a good game. Maybe some of you disagreed, disliked, or genuinely failed to understand the message here. But did you really not notice that the music and graphics are intentionally bad, and that it's done that way to lend an uneasy feeling to the experience of the game? Did you really not notice that running around with a pixel, collecting other stationary pixels, is not meant to be a thrilling gameplay experience? It's meant to tell a brief story from a unique perspective. It's storytelling - it's a crude form of art. That's all. I'm not shitting my pants over how great it is either.

And I realize this is a gaming website, and that you're judging an interactive flash that did not even attempt to provide interesting gameplay. If your position is that art games don't belong on newgrounds, then I respect that.
But art games ARE a part of newgrounds, and there is an entire front page collection devoted to them. Please try to be a human being. Judge these pieces from a perspective that is relevant. Did he do a good job sending a message with his story? Did he make you react a specific way emotionally? Those are probably more relevant questions here than "HOW GUD WERE GRAFX?" or "I CAN HAS ROCKET LAUNCHR?"

For me, this game raised questions about one's right to live, and it creeped me the hell out, as would a cheap horror flick. I enjoyed it. If you were looking for a gameplay experience, go play Halo 3.

The game properly conveys the theme as you have a choice at the end of the game to either kill your host or spare him.

Remind me of the Venture Brothers

Or the epidsodes where it shows Jonas Jr, inside of Rusty's body and then the episode where he comes out. I think that somehow in this game the parasite we play as it taken into his brother's body, and by some miracle is allowed a second chance to live, via consuming his brother's body to grow his own. Great game. Very twisted.


XyrionXyrion

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Simple but still it can bash your head

Covetous by AustinBreed is a minimalistic game, created for the 20th mini ludum dare, which had the topic "Greed".

It is about a cell of an dead human which is summond into the body of his brother to life once again. But the price could be the death of his host. To become bigger the cell needs to eat the cells of his victim to become a creature, which in the end wants to figth his way out of the victims body.

Both sound and graphic is minimalistic and supports the message and the atmosphere.
But the musicloop itself is very repetative, because it isn't very long nether is it any good.

But the visual part is great. I love the simplistic appeareance of the human and his pain.

I like the game because of that desperate atmosphere, in which you want to stay alive but with every step you do, you know that you hurt your host, and in the end you are guilty of his death. Furthermore i love the simple deliverance of the message.

The game reminds me of two things. Firstly there is the thing with deseases. The cell is like cancer in the first phase, in which it absorbs healty cells and grows till it kills his host, whos death will be one of the worst.

On the other hand it reminds me on the breakthrough of an secret mentality of yourself.
Like you eat all the shit into you, which you really hate.
And at some point you are so fed up with that, so that you literally explode and appear as an new self

morbidly brilliant.

The way I see it, this game has no super secret deep magical fantastic meaning. But it does have a good story.

The progression of the story is great, you begin thinking "oh, another cute art game! Let's see how it turns out." But as the story goes on you realize how twisted this situation is. The graphics might be very simple, but it doesn't mean they were easy to make. After all, which character you think has a better design? Kratos from "God of War", or Super Meat Boy from... "Super Meat Boy".
Sure Kratos has a lot of details, but are those necessary details?
The music, is a tad repetitive yes, but it matches the game perfectly, making the ending very uncomfortable.
I could go on and on about this game but I'm too lazy to type it.

This is a great game because I do not even think there is any way to even lose it. It reminds me of the movie "Alien" with the alien bursting out of the guy's chest. This seemed like it could be a CreepyPasta put into a game. All you have to do is go around and collect all these dots that are in this kid's body and grow strong enough to come out of it. It did seem to have an artistic tone as there were some questions about existance being asked. Whatever the purpose, this was a very different game and a very fun one.

Whether the author intended it or not, this game can be seen as having a deeper meaning. After each ending, there is no replay button. Yes, of course you can just press refresh... -.- but to me, this is supposed to represent that you made a decision where you can't go back and change your mind. It can also be compared to a lot of life situations involving greed and the desire for power. But if you just want to take it literally, you still have to think, if you were in this situation, which ending would you choose?

Outstanding. I've always loved games like this. It's simple and brilliant, and you don't hunger for more answers because it's so simple to understand. You are an alien who've been born in a other life form, and you must consume their nutrients to break out your host. Brilliant. You must make more.

My god...

The nature of greed... it always wants more, and more, and it does not care what or who it harms in the process.
This was portrayed in Covetous. A story of a man who was given a second chance at life. It was, however, an existence inside another. The one who had been spared was covetous of his brother's freedom, and he decided to take his own brother's life so that he may be a "Human" again. This was very well done, and you obviously put much time into thinking about what was the best way to tell this tragic tale. You did very well, AustinBreed.

Doesn't help the fact I was eating while playing this game. I'm not going to lie and say this was insightful to greed.

Didnt see that coming

At first i thought it might have been a tumor or fat or some kind of cancer. But it was a baby which almost shows the maker of the games philosophy. The person dies a little bit more and the baby becomes bigger. Through out each level the one you live in becomes less and less happy. While this game standing alone is terrible it is very philosophical and profound with the text involved.

A tough project to critique.

This is a tough one to give a review on. You're and artist, not a video game maker. There is a difference. Your work, or at least this one, is to prove a point, where a video game maker usually sets out to entertain.

I've heard it said several times now this game gets under your skin, and this is probably the most fitting phrase for it. I couldn't finish it my first time, but had to see it concluded. You took a simple pixel game and a simple sound track and made it absolutely horrifying. I think you proved your point.

Because I am unsure, I'm not going to give this any stars, but not because it was bade.

Covetus = covet us?

At first I thought this game was retarded, especially the bright flashing lights, but then I understood it. I'm assuming the guy had Fetus in fetu, which is a developmental abnormality in which a mass of tissue resembling a fetus forms inside the body or something along those lines. The fetus acts as a parasite, feeding on the guy's insides, getting bigger and bigger and in this case explodes out of the guy's body.

For whatever reason I thought this would be a screamer, but.. it was worse than that. What the hell gave you the idea of making this game? But besides that, my only comment/suggestion would be that if you or another author turned this into a more in-depth game, it'd be really good, but the fact that it was a short, pixelated game, made it a bit scarier.

Hmm...

AustinBreed.

For all the games I have played in my life, I have never seen games or flashes like this one. It freaked me out like I never did before. A horror that I lost sleep for a whole night, and made me reminiscence about my life for a whole day. But for all your philosophical intakes for this game, you do have one fatal flaw.

Your story is not deep enough.

What I mean by not deep enough is the fact that your storytelling is obscure. There is no explaining on who is the brother, how did he got infected or caught in it in the first place, what kind of parasite is that, the background of that parasite, his true objective on why he is being so covetous and your storytelling is very sloppy; every time I finish a level, it just seem like the parasite just keeps nagging about his misery, but did not explain his reason to exist. Is it just to ask for his existence to be noted, or just to keep eating his own brother, or maybe something else? That's what bothers me, and in fact, I thought I just see a mishmash of choppy stories being welded into a series of more choppy animations.

Well, you've done a pretty good job on this one. I appreciate your efforts and your philosophical attempts. But one problem is you need to dig your story deeper.

And oh, give it a seizure warning; the flashing lights nearly killed me in the end.

Peace.

Great. :3

Honestly, that was pretty freaky. X_x Of course, that was its goal, so.
Hm, this made me think. A lot. :P It's a relatively easy concept to get, but it takes a while to... fully soak in, I guess.

The one thing that other people haven't picked up on that may not even be purposeful is, both endings are terrible for both the player and the "host". It really added to the experience to see the host still frowning after the "player" died. Same goes for the look of horror and lack of a human form that the player dons in the other ending.

So, whether intentional or not, that really made the game much more amazing for me. :3

Finally, it's not a ten because it really did go too quickly. Oh, and also, even for an 8-bit game of this sort, the graphics were really choppy.

And yes, I realize that was the intention. Guess it's just me then. :P

airAARairAAR

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

interesting

I'm impressed. You start this game wondering what's going on. You're a dot, collecting other dots, because that's what dots do. I personally thought I was cleaning up tumors or something, and making the boy better. But with the text and audiovisual changes, horror slowly dawns on you and you realize you're killing him, to grow yourself. And yet, you push on, because you're a gamer, and you need to finish this game. At the end, you're confronted with the disturbing climax, and here you either:

A: Go all the way and kill the boy outright, giving birth to a monstrosity. The red screen further accentuates your horror at what you've just done, and it ends there.

B: You back off. But even if you do back off, the boy's smile won't come back, because even though he lived, you didn't.

When I first played this, I thought it was terrible, and I was going to write about how lame it was that the author was just trying to substitute shock for depth, etc. But as I wrote this.. I changed my mind, and my score from a 3 to a 9. Thanks for this.

RosefaeRosefae

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Huh.

Because fetus in fetu wasn't nightmare fuel enough before this game.

Still, it's a good game. It's not something that's explored too often to begin with, and playing from the embryo's point of view makes it more jarring and thought provoking than simple horror (though it is still rather horrific, but in a rather different way). The text works especially well in gradually revealing the nature of cell, though it's sort of obvious right from the start to anyone vaguely familiar with the subject. But a this isn't exactly a subject of common knowledge, it works out fine.

It does make one think. Does the fetus deserve life? Is it so wrong for it to covet existence so strongly? Is it worth the price?

I'm rather fond of the static and the red after you kill the poor chap. Quite chilling.

8/10 because I feel that the concept could've been explored a bit more.

Seizure Waring?

No seizure warning in a game with that kind of flashing effects is very, very bad form. If you must have those effects, and I can see why you'd want them, the game wouldn't suffer from a card warning people about them beforehand. Having such an intense flashing effect just pop out of nowhere like that ruins the experience for an otherwise very interesting game.

There have been cases when bot the parasitic sibling and the host sibling have survived. Most Recent was when a mid 20s guy gave birth to his identical twin sister and raises her as a solo dad. She's about 5 now.

Maybe your game could have had 3 endings. The horror of the parasite taking over. the tragedy of a double death. or the heart warming story of two siblings meeting for the first time.

Just a suggesion...

As a piece of art work, I think this works very well. It scared the crap out of me. Very disturbing, it actually stuck in my mind all day. The sound/music is creepy, and as the situation becomes more dire, the colors become crazy as does the sound. This was utilized very well in terms of making your message effective.

As a "game" though? Hmm. It seems like a lot of your submissions are message based, where you're trying to communicate something through them or make people think. It's refreshing to see games on Newgrounds that are like this.

PeggletPegglet

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Two cents.

The concept for this game is very creative and intelligent; I think the "Greed" theme is pretty unexplored territory, and I won't really say what hasn't already been said about it. However, while the concept for the game speaks to me (and many others), I really think you could have done better with the composition of the game. I get the whole simplicity perspective, and I think it does well with projecting the concept, but what with the flashing and the *extremely* repetitive music it just gets annoying. I guess what I'm saying is, if you think up a great concept for a little flash game (such as this one), I think you should put a little more work into making it attractive to the eye and ear, not just the mind; If the first two don't please you, it can really hurt the third one.

I would have given this seven stars, but honestly the part where it just says "fackand eat you cunt shitpig/" [sic] is really just unintentionally hilarious. But anyway that's my two cents on it.

Extremelly creepy.

I won't lie, this game is just boring. Or rather, boring in the "gameplay" aspect. In the beggining, it takes forever just to get to the next level, then after around two more you start going through them faster. The only real reason to get through them faster is to see what happens, which I found interesting.

First, I thought it was a little virus, then it looked like a baby lizard, then a fetus, and then a giant fly creature. His inner-monologue is the only thing we have for a story, and it is interesting for such a short game. A subtle thing you put in was the host's mouth going from happy to neutral to sad.

There are no improvements to this that I can think of at the moment. For what it is, there's nothing you can really change. If you do, it won't be the same "game".

Creepy as hell, but good.

Well, I don't want to boost others' expectations of this game by overstating how creepy it was, but I'm surprised that others didn't find this as creepy as I did. The music, which others thought was annoying or repetitive, added the the atmosphere perfectly. The artwork, albeit simple, was fine for me (I don't care too much for graphics, as long as it's for something like this). The metaphor is either lost on me or I am over thinking it. I understand the greed aspect of this well, but I can't think of much this could be (outside of the whole fetus living inside his brother thing) besides *Spoilers* Multiple personalities, with one trying to get control *spoilers*. Anyway, good game and I hope to see more horrifying games by you, and if you do, remember that music is a huge part of the atmosphere.

Missing important info and also...

Missing a "Seizure Alert"

Even though I see what you tried making, it is honestly more of a creepypasta, and a nasty one. Next time you make something like this, be sure to put up a "Creepypasta effect alert" and the other needed alerts. Trust me: people like it more when they don't get psychologically scarred.

Ah, yes, flashing =/= panic. You didn't need to have the screen flash like that, you could have the red fade in and out.

Very disturbing.

It's hard to describe why I like this game, there's not that much to do, and it mostly seems to rely on shock factor, but there is a certain undercurrent to it that speaks of the hatred the downtrodden feel, but at the same time, it is a little vulgar. Also, if you have epilepsy stay away from this.

Damn! I love the sound and the colors. They give a very "sick" feel that fits this game perfectly. The only problem I had was that wealth was spelled "weatlh" or something like that at one point. Impossible to tell if that was a typo or intentional, which was a little annoying. Still, a great game!

Woah!

Well, first things first, that scared the HELL out of me. Anyways, this does fit the theme of greed perfectly! This is a story about the greed that can come from survival. Basically, to survive, he needed to be greedy. By being 'born' this unnatural
way, it came out humanoid and severely different. It has a definitely original concept. But that was just too unexpected for me, sorry.

Simple yet Impacting

The simplicity of the game is what makes it so shocking. The ever growing need to survive and the impact on the host begins to shock the player, to the point where he bursts out of the body.

Shocking. Truly shocking. Much better than the Support Group.

Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

Don't see what the hype is about.

This was just a waste of time. Played it two times just to make sure it didn't freeze up but that was actually just the way it ended. I get that it was trying to tell a little story and it had a point but that same point could have been expressed much better in a simple animation. There was no reason for this to be interactive other than to fluff up a very short an unfinished idea. There is no originality here, interactive segments don't add anything and without them it's exposed as the very short collection of random ideas that it is. It's just some angsty journal entries with a bunch of pointless interactive segments in between. Never seen something this lazy and uninspired get so much praise. I remember a time when good art was something that was good. Now if something is bad and just plain lazy and disconnected, it's considered good art.

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Potential

This game has a bit of potential that could probably be maximized with the help of some other more experienced game creators and graphics designers. The visuals were bare basic and i'm not sure if that was due to a lack of artistic talent/experience on the creator's part or done as a stylization. The arms of the 'host' were very oddly shaped, for example. The hosts reactions to your growth, etc were negligible except for a basic change in expression, and while the background sound was rather fitting, the way the game ended in a locked-up loop makes it difficult for most to tell it's over. You need a 'the end' or something screen. This game has good potential for a good narrative to spark self reflection about greed and survival, but it's done so raggedly without real polish that it's lost in the 'wtf' feelings generated by the raw implementation. I recommend getting together with some other NG creators and polishing it up in a collab. A new version with better polish and more thoughtfully implemented interactive elements should produce a better experience that has more of the intended effect.

In summary, this game needs more polish and is too ragged and incomplete to really leave the player with the feelings and introspection that you were intending. I like the idea, and I'm glad you put it out. Now try getting together with some other NGers and polish it up, flesh it out, and make it into a real experience!

KatzaKatza

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Both beautiful and chilling

I think the word of mouth might be this game's main downfall. See, this game isn't scary in the conventional way. At risk of sounding like a snob, it's only really disturbing if you "get it". There are a few different interpretations of this, but to me, the player character was a fetus absorbed by his twin brother (the host) in the womb, and has been given a second chance at life, but to take it, he has to kill his brother by eating away at him like a cancer.

At first, I didn't "get it" when I played it, and I naturally took the "greedy" ending, and was quite underwhelmed. But then, after some thought, and after I really paid attention to the messages, I found that I couldn't bring myself to kill my host. It made me think, "Is it really okay to have life at the expense of someone else's?" After all, according to the player character, "What kind of god gives entity just to let me die again?"

It's unfortunate and saddens me that some people can't look past the simplistic graphics and music. After all, graphics don't make the game, and if anything, good graphics here would only add a level of spectacle that would take away from the message. Additionally, I actually like the lack of an ending screen as well. It's brilliant. This is real life. You don't always get closure. You have to live with the decisions you make forever. Especially since this decision involved taking your brother's life in trade for your own (or not).

If I had to change anything, I would add a seizure warning, but that's all. Personally, I love this game as is. It's a heavy, heavy message that makes me feel uncomfortable, but for some reason I keep coming back to play it again occasionally.

So in conclusion, when I saw the message you were trying to convey, it actually made me stop and think about what I was doing, instead of allowing me to disregard it and continue through the motions. You changed something in me, and to this day I still can't bring myself to kill the host. So for that alone, I consider this game a complete success. Good job, man.

Really creepy

This game was really very chilling, I think the 8-bit graphics really make it scarier, because it looks so vague. Like how the fetus thing has no moving animation, it just appears to be floating through him. And when the music becomes just a siren is when it really gets tense.

I felt a very heavy and sharp impact from this game. Probably the most evil Ive ever felt... haha... The negativity was too alive for me to handle and I didn't finish playing it. I believe in "mental viruses" like contagious insanity.
It gives me this feeling that I can not avoid. Maybe Im the type of person whos impressionable like that, and even if Im crazy for saying this stupid stuff, maybe it'll be interesting for you all to see someone who interprets the game like this.
I dont expect everyone to understand what Im saying, but maybe the author of the game would.

tldrtldr

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A touching/horrifying game.

Spoilers (kind of) below!

I played this game for three times, and its impact on me was huge. In the first time, I was too scared to look at the screen, so I scrolled all the way down and only looked when the text shows up. At the end, I just waited for it to end. Surprise. Guess the protagonist wasn't that evil after all. In the second playthrough, I took a good look at the protagonist out of curiosity and I realized that I was supposed to do something in the final stage. I went through with it and I realized the protagonist's fate was actually controlled by the player. I find the "bad" ending to be quite touching so I played through the game for another time.

The author did a great job by giving the player (and consequently the protagonist) a choice, which fits nicely with the theme. It feels as if you are making the decision yourself and it feels quite realistic- You can easily identify with the protagonist as you read through its monologue. It also gets more horrifying as the game progresses: You slowly realizes that you are taking someone's life so you can live again, and you get to decide said person's and your fate in the end. It's a really hard choice to make, and I wonder how many people would give up their own lives just to preserve someone else's, especially when said person was the one who took what was yours away in the first place.

Basically, this is a great game which deserves 10 stars for a game with such simple graphics (I am not saying pixel graphics suck, but this game's graphics look much more retrograde compared to other games). It was very unsettling though, and it's definitely not for the faint of heart. Of course, this genre of games are quite popular for good reasons, but I simply don't enjoy this sort of game-so I deducted one star from the rating.


TheGreatCatherineTheGreatCatherine

Rated 5 / 5 stars

A horrifying experience, even if it's a short one.

I have been dying to review this one, so I'm glad that I finally get the chance, now.

There are absolutely no words that I can give to describe the utterly frightened feeling that I had during my playthrough of this. It may be short, but, damn, does it leave you thinking. Do you take your brother, or let him be? Tough choice, there, my friend.

This game is so simplistic, but it cuts you to the very core. It leaves you uncertain, not knowing whether to feel for the 'embryonic sibling' or his more humanoid brother. Personally, I can't help but feel for the larger guy. I mean, who likes having their body torn in half by a parasitic creature? I sure don't.

When I first stumbled upon this game, about a month after it's release, I remember not being able to finish it because it scared the living hell out of me. The coloration, the movement of the parasitic embryo, the almost alien shape of his host, it all freaked me out.

I'm giving Covetous a 10/10, because it still manages to give me chills, even after a full year.

At first, I was thinking it was cancer. But then I continued playing, and when the screen started flashing I was all, 'ohshitohshitwhatthefuckisgoingon' and then I just started panicking a tad. I instinctively pressed the arrows, did what I was told, wanting the flashing to stop, wanting to 'win'. I didn't care what happened. Then I realized what I did.
I looked at the other reviews, and I restarted. I let the man live.

There is a phenomenon in which if there are twin fetuses in the mother's womb, one might absorb the other. If you pay attention, the narrator (the player character) describes his host as his brother, which leads me to believe that you are the absorbed twin who has regained sentience. In order to have the "life that was stolen from you", you have to eat away%uFEFF at your host's cells like a cancer. Pay attention, the further you progress in the game, the more your sprite looks like a fetus.

The game was interesting, to say the least. I can understand the part that greed plays in it, I can understand that the creature that feasted upon his insides wanted nothing but to exist.

I'll give you positive points for an interesting concept and an interesting storyline, but I hated how everything became flashy and noisy toward the end.

I won't say that it sucks because it has no story, which it does have a story, albeit a strange and somewhat disturbing one. Nor will I say that it blows because of poor game play. This isn't ABOUT game play. The major thing that I really dislike is how the final part is just so noisy and flashy.

It reminds me of Giygas from Earthbound, a little.
