Hi guys this is my first serious game, that I made for a TIGSource competition, I would love you guys to have a play. The game follows 2 characters through a series of events with a central theme of rape, I thought id post it here even though its not everyones cup of tea... That being said, its not what it seems... Heres a short video Youtube video Heres 2 links to the game download: My download link Here is the competition thread: Competition thread Thanks for playing, tell me what you think, good or bad.

I'm curious what you're thinking of here. To me it's still as distasteful as any other rape-game. The fact that it's not so serious and 2D doesn't help, really. It could be text for all I care, I still find it disturbing.

But you've heard all this before so I'll just wish you good luck with your game.

++ For style. The art / atmosphere are awesome.

Didn't get far through it though, the game seemed to break if you fell down too deep a hole.

Seconded. Kudos for the sound effects too, it all seems to come together quite well.

I couldn't get passed the land mines in the second chapter, but then again I kinda suck at platformers.

Could you summarise the purpose/plot of the game for those of us who are perhaps opposed to download and play a rape-themed game?

There isn't that much purpose/plot in the game, but I think it's worth reading the thread on tigsource linked in the OP to get some idea.

Its a short game, but theres certainly a plot and rape isnt all the game is about, ive made a few endings so everyone will probably get something different out of it, but give it a shot if you want.

I just fixed that chasm bug and added some more endings.

Yeah I read the first page of posts but all I could see was that it had two possible plots depending on which character you chose.. I'm guessing that one of those characters is the victim, and if so it might be interesting to play, but otherwise it seems a bit off..

Neither characters are the victim, your just going to have to play it :P

I'm intrigued, but it feels very wrong to download and play a game with a theme like this. I'll have a play in the morning to see if there's a less sinister plot behind it.

Not a pretty topic, but play it. This is where games cross the line into art and become the medium through which the creator can present a social commentary. The player no longer has to imagine, but can experience instead, evoking real emotions. This game brings up a whole lot of issues that are ripe for discussion, and what seems extremely one dimensional blows up rather quickly.

I say play it.

Another ++ for the atmosphere, really nice game [smile]

Art style is fantastic, it's a shame it's got such a controversial genre, else you really could have made something big from this.

That didn't stop Clockwork Orange.

It raises the question as to how much the audience is willing to bear as we cross the line from observation to interaction.

It looks very interesting. I'll see if I can borrow the girlfriend's PC later and give it a whirl.
