God's Assassin

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A text-based "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style game about evil, math, drugs and God.

Please be warned that this game pokes fun at religious concepts pretty aggressively! My own beliefs changed quite drastically right after I wrote it, though. You can read that bizarre little story at we-are-1.net.

I hope you enjoy the game -- please leave comments!

Brilliant game. I'm not one to comment on much, but this game is amazing I loved how you managed to portray all the character's giving an understandably objective view. You practically inadvertently(i presume) forced me to seek and view everything ending. Out of pure interest your views of thought are quite spectacular, seemingly neutral too. My own views personally haven't changed, but rather may have evolved. You managed to touch on many of the subject's that find us questioning all kinds of nonsense. I'd give you a ten but...... yeah. Brilliant game. Hope to see more of your work

Quite an intriguing gadget of sorts. I really enjoy the CYOA genre, and wish there were more of them out there like this; perhaps they already are, I just need to find them?

I was able to find all 25 endings, and I really enjoyed the scene in the alien bar with God explaining the multiverse. Also, the humour in the dialogue was obviously written by an atheist, and I had a good chuckle or two thanks to the satirical dialogues, so thank you for that.

Is there by any chance a list of the music used for this game? I especially liked the music during the motorcycle chase scene, but much of the other music was also nicely mellow. I've been scouring HalcyonicFalconX's music archive, but there is quite a bit for me to wade through, so a simple list would be much appreciated!

Thanks for the review! I don't think the CYOA genre is very popular, but I did another one in 2010 (check my Newgrounds profile).

And yes, this was definitely written by an atheist, haha. I'm getting some amusement out of how many people are initially assuming that this game is pro-religion; I don't think they read very much of it...

I really need to get an organized list of the music, but the motorcycle chase specifically can be found here: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/545373


I've been having a blast finding all the endings, #1 (Deicide mixed with Omnicide with sprinklings of Evil Overlord Foreshadowing) and #8 (eternity in limbo turning your mind to mush) being the bleakest to me so far.
Interesting story, nice design by our Lord The-Swain (may his camel hordes never lack in humpitude), hope to see more stuff from you in the future!
If we have a future, that is...
PS: You should create a public forum (google group?) around the concepts mentioned in the Author Bio; the nature of consciousness and its part in the development of higher intelligence are feverishly discussed by laymen, eggheads and anything with a developed neural cortex and an opinion. ;-)



A very good game, I just wish that I didn't have to read everything. Though the story is fantastic, the music is relaxing, though repetitive at times, and the art style fits the atmosphere almost perfectly.

Thanks!


This game is great. Really puts things in perspective for those who blindly follow religion. Even I learned a thing or two. By the way, Medical Mechanica... is someone a Fooly Cooly fan, or was that just a coincidence?

Fooly Cooly is my favorite creative expression ever produced by mankind. So, yes, I am a fan! I think I have a similar storytelling style as Fooly Cooly -- completely incomprehensible at first, but the clues are all there if you pay enough attention.

One of the three options with Doctor Madison is asking about the name of the hospital. Here's what she says if you pick that option:

* * *

"Oh, yes, that," Dr. Madison replies, as Faith wanders off to get a drink.

"Well, it turns out that if you donate enough money to a children's hospital, you can get it named pretty much anything you want. Some anime fan thought it would be funny. But I've never understood why some people think that just referencing something counts as a joke. Like, yeah, we get it, you can take the name of some obscure little thing and reference it in a different context. Some people will get it and some won't, but it's really not witty at all."

* * *

So, the longer story here is that I originally put that hospital name in as a placeholder, and my wife rolled her eyes at how dumb this was. The game is full of dumb little references. I thought about taking them out, but I thought it might be kind of meta to instead just have Doctor Madison poke a little fun at my lazy humor style.
