A statement on the sad state of affairs in human life, and yet kind of humorous as well. There's not much to say about the controls or the gameplay. My only comment would be that it wasn't always clear to me when I should click to advance the story and I sometimes just sat staring at the screen.

Thanks for the comment, I did try to label the story parts but I guess not clearly enough.

I like the one frame animation. And, even thought I had a gun, I liked that my character chose to beat the blob to death with it instead of shooting it with bullets...

Nice! :)

Hah! Nice one.
I like the graphics and layout in their bold simplicity. I also adore how 'attacking' makes the protagonist smack the blob regardless of the weapon (sword, spear, assault rifle) used :D Very cool.

Thanks everyone, I really didn't have much hope that anyone would respect the game's message, let alone like it! Thanks again!

funny episodes! i agree to 100% to dr_sodas comment, maybe you could let the story-parts continue by just pressing any key.

Or I could have made them timed, which would have been smoother but decreased playthrough time even further.

That was... a bit sad, actually. For such a simple game, I didn't realise you could make something quite so poignant. Well done!

Pretty repetitive, but it was somewhat fun..

Haha, nice humor here. Sadly not much gameplay, you could've turned this into a pretty fun "one-boss-battle"-like game. Nice message too, if intended or not.
Requiring the player to click mid-game when having keyboard-controls is a no-go btw, it forces the player to pick up the mouse again which is pretty annoying.

This made me happy and sad all at once, it does highlight some of our problems as a species, but with some humour. Nice little idea, and I think it fits the theme really well; human evolution is full of us just mindlessly killing things
