Excellent social commentary piece! I will assume you have artist permission for the music used? Good music.

I was able to get artist permission for all 3 songs. (in the case of Immortal Technique, i got it from the owner of his record label)

The game is slow and linear, with very little interest to it. The game lags, there is no challenge, the intro drags on for ages. I can't even let the cutscenes play in the background because of the auto pause feature. Although the music is excellent, I do want to turn it off.
The end of level fade outs are horrid, the amount of repetition in the scenery is impressive given how severe the lag is (honestly I have no idea how you managed that)
The game doesn't have a plot or a real ending, just a heavy handed moral message.

Well.... The game is not really bad, but... It's not fun... There's a story, a compelling story that is interesting, some music that make sense in the story, there's a gameplay, but it doesn't suits the game.... There's no real challenge.. and in a game with a story like this I was thinking I could actually do something, make a decision, help the innocents(the music also gave me this felling) but in the end, there's nothing I can do, in fact, I just walked through the entire game without killing anyone, didn't chance a thing ..... The linearity of the game combined with the fact that your character represents no change in the game world (either for good or for bad, because in the end it didn't matter if I murdered everyone or not, it's the same thing) and also the simple, repetitive and cliche gameplay makes this game really boring...

And if the police were abolished? Then what? No one's perfect, and there are always bad amoung the good, but who will stand between the bad guys and the innocents then? Think a little bit harder about the messages you take to heart, and what you propagate.

Nice little teaser game with a dystopian atmosphere and relevant message. Nice biting political satire and killer soundtrack. Well played!
