I like the "hmm" sound :D 

It was a bit hard sometimes (especially the last level), because the books move so slow

Submitted(+1)

Interesting concept, my only comment would be to make those books fly faster! Those reds move so fast, that you need to be a master shooter to actually hit them from far, and from close there is the danger of them reaching you, since you're slow too...

The books were supposed to be a fun challenge but ended up being nothing more than an annoying obstacle :/. Tought me something about game design at least :)

Funny little game, good concept !

Ahahaha! A good laugh (Especially the end!) Also nice audio! Took me a while to get used to such slow projectiles but it was kinda cool/strategic to hafta lead shots so much. Overall, nice game :D

Developer

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed the books :)

It took me a while to realise that the books were being thrown in the direction of the mouse cursor. Once I discovered that, winning became trivial.

A lot of the game's difficulty depends on the flat earther's pathfinding. If they decide to go where there is low concentration of spherists, then the game is very easy to beat.

When you lose, the game pauses inelegantly. You can actually keep playing.

Theme: The game isn't a lie. It's about lies. For me that's a miss.

Graphics are coherent but a little too simplistic, in my view.

Music is fine. SFX is informative.

Developer

I totally agree with you. Adding some sort of order to where people walked would have made the gameplay more consistant and enhanced the strategic aspects. It's very weird though that you are able to keep playing when you lose. I can shoot, which isn't good either, but I can't walk. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to give an honest review of the game!

It seems that soon we'll need more of that books in real life...

Sad but true

your game is so awesome dude really love playing it, cool sounds and of course cool game play

Submitted(+1)

This is a very cool little game. Controls are smooth. The game play is interesting. It is little difficult to figure out red guys' path so many books are wasted. The book cool fly faster, sometimes I shoot and run toward a red guy I still get hit first.

Nice concept, but the books move too slow and it's difficult to shoot. Why not have the left mouse button be shoot? It seemed like I had a limited amount of books, but they kept on refilling. Perhap it's better to have a bar indicating how many books the player has.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback! I added a tip to the game description that explains how to utilise the slow speed of the books. The player is also supposed to have an infinite amount of books that can be thrown once every second, so what you're describing sounds like a bug :/

I love the "bla bla bla" Sound in the TV and the prestory =D

The truth has been heard!  Any way to grab a macOS build from ya?

Developer

I don't own a macOS device, but I can upload a macOS version anyway if you could test it out and tell me if it works. Sounds good?

Love the text/deathscreen/win screen honestly. 

it's really hard to aim but i'm not a pro-gamer so it might be my fault. :D (y) good job
