I am the only one who feels the characters are alive?

Nope! There were a few on Reddit who had the same reaction to the game.

dude this is a super cool game i love it but i have some gripes, there should be a regroup button and the keys are really spread out and hard to get to at times but other wise great game game play wise. Now the music is amazing i love it to no end and it fits the games style perfectly

I'll admit this is pretty good. I barely play many games on NG, haven't even been very active until 2014, but I've legit spent the last hour playing this. Pretty decent game, keep em coming.

Personally, I like adding metal gear solid VR Missions music to this while I play, it really adds to the atmosphere.

Hey you're on NG as well! :D

OmiyaGames responds:

Yeah, I just noticed Newgrounds supported Unity webplayers, so I figured, why not?

Awesome game. I love how all of the guys are not just clones of the same guy, as I originally expected. It adds a bit of challenge and a very nice aestetic touch.

Very original. I wouldn't have thought of a game like that.
