Terrorist Killer

Just wanted to announce a short political game I made for Kokoromi's one-button Gamma 4 competition a while back.

The game's sort of a "Where's Waldo?" terrorist edition, about terrorism, and the war on terror. Be forewarned that it's none too subtle with its message. It's very short, requiring about 5 - 10 minutes to play through.

Here are some screenshots, with the download link below:

I thought it was excellent, and made its point well. A very effective use of the medium.

And there was no way of making this subtle, because what it is about (both politically and in terms of other games) is not subtle. The brutal simplicity of it is precisely what makes it powerful.

I bet there are some people who, if they played this game, wouldn't understand the irony and would still enjoy it.

People like John McLain (live free or die hard!!  Cool )

Every time a bomb goes off it scares the hell out of me. The pixelated aftermath is pretty brutal.

Oh, forgot to mention, but in case anyone cares, here's the game's "permanent, static" page on my website:

I agree, there wasn't much subtle about it.  But for a topic as this, there needs to be no ambiguity.  As others have said, this was indeed a very effective exploration.

I liked the use of the "Call to Prayer" chant in the very beginning.  For some reason, this sound effect struck me as a very powerful start to such a game.

Thanks, Theta. I only recently updated the game with the call to prayer opening.
