It's about sharing and deputizing.

Take the badge and gather up teammates so that you aren't alone. Don't worry about people dying it's all good as long as one of you make it to the train.

There's no lose screen right now so if you lose it'll probably crash. Or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hmm, the plan sounds good however I never got anyone to follow me (not even poor Herschel), pressing X next to someone only toggled the chair icon. I ran to the train alone then ;)

Since there seems to be a bug (or I couldn't work out how to play properly) I can't fairly vote for Overall.

Seems like a pretty neat idea for a game, and the graphics are charming. Also, I got to deputize a cat and that made me smile.

Biggest problem is I didn't really know exactly what I was trying to do. I went around deputizing some people and crashing them into bad(?) guys, but couldn't really figure out the goal and/or how to win.

Probably my biggest annoyance is that the controls were so unresponsive and the character moves so slowly. Every time I moved I had to wait something like a full second for the movement to end before I could try to move again... if I pressed the next direction too early, the game ignored it completely.

Anyway, this could be a pretty cute and fun puzzle game. If you keep working on it, I'd say smooth out the movement as much as you can and try to explain it better to the player.

The same as Hendurion... I won't vote for Overall or Fun then.
It is a good idea though !

To all the confused people there's a pretty big typo in the tutorial pressing the Z key not the X key deputizes people.

I for the life of me could not get the deputize thing to work. =[

I was a bit confused. Was able to deputize people, but why would I want to sit down? also, the train was really hard to find (I never found it).

Hey, it's those dudes from 21st Century Boys!

Nice nod.

I'm afraid I suffered the same fate as most and couldn't work out exactly what the aim of the game was... although, the cat is the cutest sprite ever so I'm giving you 5 for graphics :)
