I find this hilarious because I don't ever make music and this game was the first and only time I've attempted to make a sort of soundtrack. I never really thought of any names

this needs a part 2,but with yet better graphics

The game serves more as a mouthpiece than a game, but it's not a bad for a short game.
It's made well, and it presents your views in a professional and interesting way.
All in all, it's okay, albeit could be more engaging. I certainly wouldn't mind more stuff coming from you, as you have talent.

Now if someone is curious, my 2 cents in regards to the politics, as this game is apparently about Palestinians vs Israelis, albeit mind you, that had no bearing on the rating whatsoever.

In 2015, when you first published this game, I would have been probably on Israel's side. Nowadays? Not so much. It all boils down to how people, who were oppressed themselves, became the oppressors. Now, it's not your fault, but it's certainly the fault of your government's policies.

Palestinians are treated like a literal cattle, and sorry, no matter how anyone will try to justify it, it's mindblowingly disturbing. Israel is being openly an apartheid country, and is very proud of it. Maybe the problem is that Israel's government is zionist - radical right-wing nationalist. And Israel has been zionist for a very very long time.

And again, it's not like Israel has no problem with being chauvinistic, racist, and hateful towards other countries as well, like ie. Poland, with the outrageous anti-Polish campaign to the point of slander, and it's only a recent -2018- example. Or like Israel doesn't have much heart for others, as they still didn't recognize Armenian Holocaust committed by Turks (also a recent example). And of course, it's a matter of time, before Israel starts a war with Iran.

I can also tell a personal anecdote how my aunt got spat on by jewish orthodox kids (one even threw a rock) in Jerusalem for being christian pilgrim. I seriously wonder what these kids are being taught by their parents, because it's disturbing to say the least. If this is how an outsider is treated, I can only wonder how the Palestinians are treated.

Remember, if you give hatred to others, it will return back to you thousandfold. Israel certainly has a lot of PR homework to do, because so far, it looks ugly to say the least.

And no, I don't condone terrorist actions, especially done by muslims.

You're correct about the time frame. When this game was made there was a "knife intifada" which means every couple of days a random palestinian would go and stab random israelis. This left people terrorized and scared to walk outside. This was the backdrop, yeah, but the game is about something else. I had a strange habit of checking how international media reports things every time something happens. I was pretty shocked. If for example a palestinian stabs 4 israelis and is then arrested by the police you would see this headline: "Tension in Jerusalem rises as police assault a Palestinian suspect". It would come with a big picture of a poor palestinian guy being violently arrested on the ground with menacing police/military figures looking down on him. The news story will start with some background information about how israel is terrible and how its police is brutal. When reading this stuff it would make me wonder "Wait. What? Was there ever even a terrorist attack in the first place? Maybe it never happened?". Then if you scrolled down to the 7th paragraph, you might see a mention of the poor palestinian guy suspected to maybe have injured a civilian or two (Of course, there would be no pictures of injured/killed israelis, only palestinian ones). The reporters still have to write part of the truth because they can't broadcast outright lies, it would hurt their credibility, but they can frame reality however they see it to obfuscate the truth. And I'm not talking about some shady underground media outlets but mainstream big-name news outlets like BBC. But still, sometimes, they did cross the line too far and wrote blatant lies against israel. These stories could cause too much noise and criticism against them and couldn't stay on their site so after about 6 days (after it's not news anymore and people already consumed the lies) they would fix the headline and story article to remove the lies.
So, yeah basically, in anti-israel media there would be no pictures of injured/hurt/killed israelis, only palestinians. But of course, in the Israeli media, they'd place the emphasis on the terrorized israeli causalities. You could see them and the scenes of the crime itself and also the casualties' families crying on camera. And there would never be any room for doubt about WHY those police officers jumped on that terrorist guy who was in the middle of trying to kill people.

It was just extreme examples I saw of how something clear and simple happens but every group can perceive it as a completely different story, and that was the inspiration for this game.

Since then I follow the news much less, both domestic and foreign. I hope it can stay this way but then again it's the middle-fucking-east.

Those jewish orthodox spitter kids will for sure also spit on a muslim for no reason other than being racist and being raised on hate. They will also spit on other jews but who are not religious, or jews who believe in "the wrong kind of judaism".
Of course, you can note that if you swap the words "jew" and "muslim" here it all still magically holds true. That's because religious extremists are horrible everywhere.

So damn funny I really enjoyed it , Ironically I am a muslim and find the Jihad part hilarious ! XD

Pretty enjoyable game with a clever premise. The political message is true in a lot of different ways, especially right now (2016, I'm going to call this year right now as the hardest downfall), but I really don't want to stress myself out with all the media BS. This is a well made game that I think a lot of people should play. I'm going to go with a 5/5. since the message was portrayed well, the script was written to set a nice tone to fit the subject matter, and the gameplay was pretty good.

For those of you who don't understand what the author is criticizing, I have a great example. I am not saying this to express political opinion, only to clarify and inform. About two years ago, I was reading continuous news bulletins about a local police officer who had been shot, and in critical condition in a hospital. The reports I was reading were local, not national (this is the U.S., by the way). What happened is that the officer and his partner were sent in the middle of a low-income neighborhood, and the suspect was shooting into people's homes until the police arrived. There were countless calls to the police during his rampage, but the original call was from him, so he could lure the police and murder an officer (it's also assumed that he was committing a form of suicide, as he didn't have any means of escape from the police, nor did he have any solid motive). When the two officers arrived on the scene, they didn't shoot, as that would be breaking protocol if a suspect isn't directly threatening a civilian or officer. The officer in subject was down in three shots, upper body, dead. His partner shot the suspect, one shot, upper body. The suspect was rushed to the hospital, and the officer as well, even though he was believed fatally wounded. The suspect died in the hospital. News started covering the neighborhood of the event, and that's when an uninformed national media began their assault. The story soon became less about a murdered father of three, and more about the "execution" of a man who was reported by family of abusing hard drugs and alcohol, and physically abusing women. And the media managed to spin it into another "cops hate black people" story.

Sorry for unloading that onto your game Alon-Tzarafi, but I've had a bad taste in my mouth ever since that incident.
