The King is dying. The only way to save him is through science. Or philosophy. Or religion. Anyway, you gonna have to slay a lot of people.

My favorite was the philosopher, he looks like some kind of homing missile.

That took a strangely brutal and abstract turn. :)

Interesting and can be expanded really well. Compo is hard!

Cool. I really liked the "The King is Dead!" picture, that was funny! That said, even though the game wasn't hard, the occasional severe lag made it frustrating. And I'm not entirely sure how it fits the "one room" theme, as it seems like the landscape you play in consists of multiple rooms. Unless you meant them all to be the same room since there are no doors? :P

Anyhow, I also like how all Science, Philosophy, and Religion are presented as all being essentially the same as each other, especially since they all have the bottom line of "slay everyone!". Nice first entry!

I would prefer a different focus next time! A splash screen with 3 playable classes is overkill if there is not enough content in the game.

Nice smooth gameplay. Not entirely to the compo rules using classical artworks - just making some stick men could have achieved more here, in about the same time.

Like the language and the fact that the three classes are complementary.

I've finished the game with all heroes. Collision is bugged (the conspirators would sometimes shake on the walls and even pass through them) and priest feels underpowered, but in general the game is quite funny and enjoyable. I'm looking forward for more.

12/10 for putting Socrates next to Maria SkÅ‚odowska and Tomás de Torquemada. That's Paradox Interactive level of historical accuracy.

It is about "room", but not "one" :P The concept is interesting and the mood is good. Greetings!

Pretty funny. I can't finish the game with the prier though, that's a bit too hard for me x)
Congratulations for finishing a game, it feels fun.
