Incredibly creepy game! (In a good way!) The art for it, the music, and the red tears does well in establishing that. I think if the game was generally darker it could make for the perfectly dark and creepy game. Also, I was at 0% HP for a little bit before I was officially recorded as dead. But it was fun! I enjoyed running around and crying blood on everything. :)

Um, very difficult game for me! It's not a bad game, it's just really hard for me to attack with the mouse alone.

Wow, that really creeped me out when I got the 100% to the egg. I thought it would spawn something to help me :D

Challenging, creepy and fun... just awesome :D (although my mouse may be broken from all that mashing D:)

no idea how this has to do with evolution... It was really fun though. I played until the egg cracked. Great job!

Super creepy and very original. Only complaint is that I'm now suffering from RSI! Very good game; well done.

Your dropbox webplayer link is broken.

I really don't know if there's a theme connection here that I'm missing, but I just don't see it. Otherwise an intriguing and very atmospheric game, but a bit simple, and I'd reaalllllllyyyyy like an autofire.

About the connection with the theme, the egg is evolving! :P

Strange game, but original. The gameplay doesn't bring anything new, but you kept me interested just with the music and weird messages, liked it.

Chrome has issues with the https web link, try changing it to http. Music and art really set the mood with this one.

The music sets the mood perfectly. It was quite a freaky game. One possible bug is that my laser eyes did no damage only by right click to make tears could I hurt the enemies.

@darkshadow That was planned, the laser kill, the tears just confuses the enemies.

@Maxium Done. Thanks!

Well, that was... odd. I think I just released the Ultimate Evil by getting all emo over an egg. Cool.

I like the mechanic of trying to drop tears onto the egg while battling oncoming enemies, but I found the laser to be really useless once I discovered that the tears were harmful to the enemies as well. At that point I just cried all over everything because it's a lot easier to maneuver above the enemies and keep the direction of your shots consistent rather than having the angle of the attack change every time you reposition either yourself or the mouse.

Neat music, by the way.

@dr_soda yes, that was a fail with the gameplay, i did not have the time to calibrate the impact of the tears, they were supposed to confuse the enemy a little, just a little :)

Really haunting game and music. Pretty good, though the ending was bit plain, I was expecting something more. Nice job with the game though.

My hand is sore from rapidly clicking after that. It was alright, good atmosphere and graphics, music and sounds were good too.

Overall it was nice but yeah, autofire would've made this a lot better.

Interesting, and weird. I didn't like having to click click click, but it was ok, and I'm a fast clicker anyway. I liked how the sprites became skewed as they turned. That was a nice effect. The sound was also nice. Also, the egg looks like a paint palette, lol. Nice job, though.

Ohhhhhhh really weird, I like it!! Great mood

Nice final twist! But my right button of the mouse is hating you.

The ending is a bit disapointing...but excellent mood from the beginning to the end
