Thank you!


Strange, i was looking forward to try this game, but everytime i try to download it i get this message "Nothing is available for download yet."

I will report it, thank you for bringing it to my attention!


this is soo good game i didn't complete to the end but its very cool game i love to see more games from yo


Thank you so much, that means a lot!

Your welcome!


That was a really neat little game! I shot my wife at the end but I'm guessing I could have spared her if I'd chosen the other option? I'd love to see something longer in this style.


Thank you so much! You can indeed spare her life, I'm glad you felt like you had a choice.
I'm going to extend it to add an epilogue and a prologue and some music when I get time. I will make more games like this as they are so fun and quick to make.
