That was pretty cool. Other then the weird jumping and the mine part, I liked the game. It took me a minute to get the point of the game but the idea is pretty clever. Also I liked that house you can take a short cut through. As for the graphics, I liked the rain effect and the old film effect a lot and how it worked well with the low res graphics.

Disappointing, I usually enjoy his rants. Again, just like many other people he confused the game's content. He said it was a game about a rape. It's been said so many times that I'm near sick of hearing and/or saying that it is a game about a rapist, not rape. He really misses the point on a lot of things about the game. He keeps comparing the game to Silent Hill 2, which is just puzzling to me.

His review/rant sounds like he didn't even play the game. It's been so over and over again that the game never forces you to rape anyone, which again makes me believe he didn't play it and probably only read about it.

In the review he specifically states that you have to rape the girl to finish the game. Which is of course false.

No longer interested in hearing any of his forthcoming rants. Also getting quite tired of everyone implying or specifically stating that Passage is the holy grail of artgames/emotionalgames/whatever.

well even if one could not rape emily and beat the game the game never tells you that.
so one would just (think crap I can't leave this area unless I rape her just like the video on youtube show me. well that was my first impression being trap in a room and being force to do something for the sake of story) rev never had seen this thread fully nor why would any one with a thread with this many post it's intimidating.
he's right on raping the girl to finish the game nam pretty much gave you no choice on the matter. In some 'I did that on purpose' reason would be eddie the real one was always a horndog. that and solder aka mike must have seen some really sick shat to end up having a killer 7 moment with eddie.

but for a game which trailer only shown the first raping it's hard to reason others that the game isn't totally about rape but a rapist who gets landmines lodged in his banana color guile* ass in nam.

oh it seems most of the comments on the video pretty much shows what's a normal man response to the game if they played before you read or watch the video.

if people can find all these weird exploits and easter eggs (using paint brushes to climb towers in oblivion?!) in other games surely they can make their way back to the cab

yeah i do agree about the vietnam part though. i felt it should you should have had a choice in the matter, aside from exiting the game or getting yourself killed. but that was a design choice Farmergnome made.

I'm so sorry, but you can't just tell people what it's "about".  Maybe it's about rapists, and not rape.  Or memory, or conscience, or whatever, but the rape scene is the most challenging and engaging part of the game.  You can supply the content and emphasis, as a game designer, but not the meaning.

Ahh yea, I sure can, its my game.  Just because you get a different meaning out of it doesn't change the way it was intended, Im alowed my opinion on the topic too. Your free to believe whatever you want it to be, but if you ask how it was intended, then you know.

that may be true but most won't get that if when they download your game and played it. you might want to stick in a director's commentary to explain what you where getting at for those that were to disgusted by the youtube video showing them they can rape her and yet not explaining that 'up' allows you to enter doors like the cab and still beat the game.
oh well at least a zombie game can't get players morally confused and disgusted by the actions you do.
wait isn't the sparkle vampire who stalks 17 year olds name edmund to?
that would also explain the mikes/ed ability to jump high and ed being dead in nam'
and why there is no one around at night.
the death scene at the end wasn't mike and ed as one but mike breaking his vamp bond with edmund who 'vanish' into the night to lick his wounds.

Just dropping some support for the creator. Glad you're sticking to your guns; games aren't just movies that force you to press buttons, and we need more game designers that realize that.

I'm really late replying to this, and even the forum is warning me that the topic is hella old and I shouldn't be posting in it... But I gotta say something.

Playing the game absolutely disgusted me, and that's why I like it. It makes me think, feel horror, and the little twist at the end profoundly disturbs me. A man facing his inner demon, deciding whether to make the immoral decision or whether to kill that aspect of him altogether...

The sound and sight of the rape horrified me, something I'm sure you aimed to do. Pity some people just see the game as exploitive or "edgy" even. It's more than that.

Played this, The Baron, and I Have Candy Get In the Van all last night. Makes a man think, especially one as young as me. I have plenty of years to do either a lot of good or a lot of bad, to fuck up a lot or make things right. Hm.

Has anyone been able to figure out how to take screenshots of this game, both normal printscreen and FRAPS and a few other programs all failed to produce any results for me.

Update: FRAPS started working for no apparent reason.
          My Review (http://indie-elitist.blogspot.com/2011/10/edmund.html).

I want to review the game, but would really like to first have something other then the one picture provided to do so with.
