Hi,

I made this game as the 18th run of the rather excellent 48 hour game creation competion Ludum Dare.

This means that all the art/code/sound was all made by me, within a strict 48 hour timeframe. I'm really happy with the level of polish I managed to achieve in the time, and I really hope you enjoy it.

edit: If you're having problems getting back up, this video should show you what you're missing.: http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=meKITP12Dsc

Apologies for not making it more obvious.

Cheers,
Jonathan Whiting

your pure naivity is astounding.

first and foremost the game review. considering the 48 hours timelimit its a quite well done game with some oddly precise puzzles (save a bug or two i noticed but have already been mentioned) now however for your message.... pacifism does not work. period. in fact it acts in total opposition to itself. metaphorically speaking you can not change the world without a gun. all pacifism does is show people how to beg others with guns to defend them. there are only three things human beings have done since their existence, eat, fuck, and kill. and those things will not ever change, to choose pacifism is to ask someone else to fight in your stead because you are literally too pathetic not to take pity on, ask ghandi. if you intend on taking a complex matter like the one in your "message" and try to simplify it in a few lines then your are purely a fool sir. leave the deep thought stuff to the philosophers and go smoke your weed, you obviously werent cut out to view wide perspectives.

The Game Was Fun

The heavy handed sub... okay, that wasn't even subtext. There is, however, two extreme, extreme missteps if your message is pacifism. They fire at you using the same exact weapon you have. If this were me, I'd fire right back. If I got hit and the only thing that happened was that I flew back, one I'd be very relieved, two I would assume that I'm not going to kill them if I shot back. Also, avoiding the shooting on the way back up is, in fact, pacifism. If they die by their own shots, that's idiocy. You are trying to make what can be, as shown by Gandhi, an effective argument, that pacifism is the way to go. Heavy handed bullshit like this just pisses people off. It's clearly fictional, it was actually a fun game, and then you go and try to be eloquent and potent with your message. Nuclear missiles are a pretty big deal. Also, if the people in charge actually want proof of something, they don't say 'Kill everyone', especially if the enemy actually has nuclear missiles. NOBODY wants those things going off. Your method for delivering the idea of pacifism is the worst way of delivering the idea of pacifism ever. Thank you, oh great one, for being a dick.

Weird ending

First, there is a REALLY annoying bug: When you shoot and stand directly in front of a blue wall, the bullet gets stuck and the hit sound is repeated :/

The ending is bad. I mean, you start with some nuclear weapon stuff then you find a recipe of bread and your principal says "Good work soldier"???
And it is weird that you count kills when the enemies kill themselves Oo
I shot about 15 soldiers I think (0 on the way out) and it says "You killed 54 soldiers. Give pacifism a chance". wtf?

Wow...

The game was good and the puzzles were fun, but then I beat it and the entire game was ruined for me. Really? That's how you're going to end your game? Awesome concept and a lot of fun, but a naive viewpoint completely ruins the game for me.

Tip for the future: if you want everyone to like your game, don't throw in political messages at the end as a "reward" for beating the game. When you win, you want to feel a sense of accomplishment, not like the asshole that tore apart dozens of families.
