I feel like the people complaining about the senseless violence or claiming that the two guys are anti-heroes had the whole point of this fly way over their heads. I liked the sense of humor. Felt like a legit dungeon grinding rpg from the perspective of the characters and some of the creatures you'd kill to farm loot from. The only thing that really bothered me was the minute and a half of intro text. I couldn't get into it as it wasn't the most pleasant thing to try and read and there was too much of it for too long of a time. Good thing it was at the start and I could skip it, otherwise it would kill the whole pace of the video.

Superb! I was looking out for a Muscles McQuack cameo after I realized Ivan was on this.

great pixel art, very video gamey
but the senseless violence is just tasteless

Fantastic art!
But the tone is all over the place. Senseless violence is fun when justified. Here we had two bad guys, being uncomfortable, killing innocents. No danger. No consequences. No meaning. And what's really important - no punishment. The thing with antiheroes is that we should see them suffer or they should have some likable traits. Instead we got Happy Tree Friends, Always Sunny or our own original Madness series, but without any interest in the characters, and the characters serve no overall purpose. The whole story felt like a joke that went on for so long that it forgot its punchline.

Plus when we've established that they're assholes, we can predict all the individual punchlines, soooo all the jokes fall flat now. That's bad.

A meets B. They fight. A wins. - that's a story, but it's a bad story. Gimme reasons, make me care, I'm not 15 anymore, I'm getting old here.
