You land on a cold dark planet. Who you trust can help you or lead you to an early retirement. Your revolver is the only thing you can trust.

Edit: Cool frontpage. :) Thanks Tom and everyone at Newgrounds.
I also thank everyone for your feedback and encouragement.

Edit: Hmmm. Lots of people are writing that the game needs music. I happen to agree. So lets make this a contest. PM me links to music that you think will be perfect for the game. For the winner i will put there name in the game as a special thanks. The rules are the music has to be royalty free music or have permission from the creator. :)

Thoroughly enjoyable. I like minimalistic games that manage to do lots with little. Not to say you didn't put much effort into this. I love the future-noir background. Very bladerunner. If you haven't already you should check out Gemini Rue, similar themes, and a great game. It too uses a future, space-noir setting.

Great work. Keep pumpin these out! The writing was pretty damn good! I'd love to see a sequel.

Seems like something that could have been improved dramatically with a few easy things.

The rooms you're shooting these guys in could have been drawn instead of the same backgrounds.

The gun could have had a noise.

Could have left the furry bit out.

Could have given really any clue as to which direction to go in order not to not randomly die.

Could have made it longer and more in depth. Why not? It's not like art or animation went into it to make that difficult to accomplish. Speaking of which, considering how simple the art was I don't know why you didn't bother with animation.

The writing was the core of the whole game, and that wasn't terribly good or engaging. Sorry to be harsh, but that text with the same jazz loop just isn't a whole game, even with the "click the guy" minigame.

For a text game it's really sad that "you're" and "your" are not used correctly. Please have someone good at English edit your games for you. It's also very short and very easy--there are no real consequences for messing up, and also it's completely random as to how one can fail. as opposed to it being the actions one took that led them to fail. The idea is good and I actually liked the graphics, I felt they were totally appropriate.

good game, although more advanced graphics would be nice. Good job!

Do more like this! Amazing art and story!
