So it took me a while to get how does this works, you drag the dev's to the torture devices, and have to keep clicking in then to torture. This will grant you money, and then you can deploy new devices at the end of each level. It was a little disturbing for me to torture the pixel devs but I had a little fun. I think there could be more blood splatter and stuff to enhance the hurting experience, and maybe a sweet spot between torture and killing.

Game is quite fun but, seriously? 8-bit Baby by Justin Bieber? XD Graphics are ok, I really like the mood of the game. The hitboxes seem weird sometimes though.

Not bad, though the clicking to hurry torture gets old pretty quickly. The first time around I didn't even realize I could click on the devs to hurry the process and still got quite far. I had some trouble dropping devs on the electrical torture device. Think I really had to drop it on the device itself rather than the spot where the dev goes.

Graphics are fine, I like this style of pixel art. I think you shouldn't be afraid of ramping up the gruesomeness in a torture game though.

Music and sound were entertaining and suited the game.

Grisly and mildly addictive. Great work with the graphics (and I like the chippy music too).

Well, that was pretty dark. But for its, say, "genre", I think it is nice.

Addictive! I found myself upgrading to torture more innocent devs! Nice humour and stable game!

Ahaha, I like it! (I'm a sadist)

I would expect more game mechanisms.
