There appears to be a glitch/ bug where some times the sword phases them rather than actually hitting them. I thought movement while pressing x was the cause but I seemed to be able to active this issue without moving. Not sure if its just me...
I'll give it a half rating only because it's such a pain in the ass to walk back over to get the sword, after talking to the king for the 500th time, then having to walk all the way back, to get killed instantly and having to start it all over again. But the concept is great, and the game is good. It's just, as I said, it's a pain in the ass.
As games about murdering children go, it's pretty good.
The concept was neat and I had pretty high hopes for this game once I figured out what was going on. However, the writing is distractingly flawed and the whole thing feels like I'm being slapped with a fish in its bluntness. Also, getting all the endings is pretty boring, it feels like pointless grinding. I really wanted to like this game, but I didn't.
Huh, I guess I'm the only one who thought the game was blatantly making a religion vs gay marriage allegory. I must be spending to much time on reddit.
Anyways, it's an okay game. It doesn't do a very good job being subtle about its message, and I wish there were more possible endings. But I guess you did what you set out to do, so good work.
