Interesting game, wish I hadn't made the decisions I did with my first group, I might have survived more than 8 hours :(

Will try again though. Thanks for this one, Bart!

Don't like it, too lengthy...

That's like three games in one, one of which is another three in one... A little hard to understand in the beginning, but very enjoyable.

Can't even pass second level.

Pretentious and awful.

Sorry if that seems harsh.

Don't apologize...it really is pretentions and awful.

I loved this! Only 9 of my villagers survived. :(

But it was NOT pretentious OR awful! It was one of my favorites that has been posted for a long time. I loved the message, it was very deep.

It was brilliant but it would help if at the beggining it told you what to do with the people as only half of my time was used on the first level after wondering what on earth to do.

Only 8 survived...

I agree it really was not pretentious and awful.

Is the black screen part of the game, or is it not loading in Safari?

So touching. If it had instructed you, it would have ruined the message. What made it for me was the creepy shadow people.

The Gordo said...

Meh. Not bad. Not amazing. I had 22 people survive.

PK said...

UGH. Pretentious, with tons of over-written purple prose. If you ignore the BAD writing, you're left with a three part game:

1. A "platformer" that's really only there to convince you to read the (flowery, poor) writing. (2/10)

2. A series of mini-games that are actually a bit fun. (6/10)

3. A farming sim that gets very boring VERY quickly. (3/10)

Not recommended.

I tried playing, but every 10 or so seconds, the whole screen would go black and return to the original loading screen and start again, going a bit further into the beginning little sequence. I gave up after this happening 5 or 6 times.

I had basically the same problem, and found the text in the intro unbearably slow.... I wanted to see what the game was about but it just wouldn't work for me.

Not good at all. Boring and slow. Farming sim?!? "Deep" if you're a preteen goth.

Please, Bart, no more like this.

the page doesn't load - is it just me (everything else works fine)

Carrett said...

Yeah... It didn't load for me. I'm glad I checked the reviews before getting too frustrated because it seemed like just a platformer from the screenshot.

Apparently it's about
1/2= can't load,
1/4= liked it,
1/4= hated it
in terms of people's perspective.

Maybe publish a demo version that works on all browsers? :P

I hate to be harsh but when a gliched game comes out asking you to buy the full version, I have to attack it.

The black background of the site hurt my eyes! But I had a great time playing with it.
