AAAAAaaargh
I've been playing for a while now and I think it's time for a break.
The graphics are great, music is great, everything's excellent.

Those fights though are very tricky..

I managed to kill both of the first two exactly one time so far, and when (I think) I found the third one, I couldn't figure out how to trigger the fight so I just shot him anyway.. but, no civs this time.

Dying in the fights is very sudden and abrupt, and there's not a lot of room to avoid the dudes. Twice I insta-died before I even had time to move anywhere, despite holding down the opposite direction while finishing the dialogue.

I'm going to give it another shot (or a few other shots) a little later, I'd really like to finish it.

I really like this game.
Love the pixel graphics and gameplay.
I haven't beat it so I'll try again later.
Good game!!

Really loving this. Got in the hotel room, shot the dude 5 times, he touched me and I restarted. No biggie, would for sure play a blown out version of this.

I struggle to figure out what or how to play.
Looks okay.

Damn this looks gorgeous, great work! The guy with the gun is really hard to dodge, though.

Wow, this is super impressive guys. Great art, great audio, great game design. I'm always a sucker for rxi's lighting style, but this fit the game perfectly.

Marvelous!
The game has a great and consistent art style. The few colors really compliment the otherwise monochrome setting.
The boss fights are sort of, weird.
Touching them leads to a reset, which is odd. one time it immediate reset after finishing the dialog. Otherwise you are fine just circling around them and shoot them every other time.

I was particularily confused by a fail state when shooting a civilian. Dying isnt a game over but killing civilians is, that is kind of awkward :P

Anyways, nice atmosphere and phenomenal work for a minild! Good job both of you :D

Outstanding graphics and music. But I don't know how to stop killing the civilians. So the I die all the time.

Agree with wzl on the reset state if the enemies touch you. Other than that fantastic game!

Awesome graphics and music.

Awful horrible gameplay. The guys touch you and you have to RESTART? are you kidding me? Fix this immediately.

Fantastic setting, art and sound but the gameplay is ruined by the fights, auto restarts and gameovers. I hope this gets worked on more as it has great potential.

Great graphics, nice moody music.

I'm not a huge fan of the gameplay though, very punitive.

Definitely an impressive achievement for 48 hours. The graphics are great, the audio is perfect, and the gameplay is challenging enough to last a while. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and ambience. Awesome.
