2 days, but I was struggling with finishing anything for a while. I was working on some epic webgl based game engine that took forever. Then suddenly, there's this #BabyHitler thingy trending on the Internet. I watched some video on TYT mocking the idea and that somehow got on my nerve, so I decided to make a game out of this. Because I am genuinely curious... would you, if you could travel back in time to 1889, kill Baby Hitler?

I've got a couple questions. First: What?
Second: The F*ck?
Third: Doesn't the final ending causes the same paradox as killing baby Hitler, since your preventing Hitler from rising to power either way?
Finally, I won't kill Baby Hitler, because I'd rather use time travel to erase some of my akward moments in life than right the wrongs of history. Probably safer for the whole time-space thing. Or not? Good thing I can't time travel I guess.

Anyway, that was fun, and these graphical limitations made the work quite impressive :)
(I'm not sure why, but I left the ending theme play in the background while writing that. Might explain some of the things I said)

Glad you found it fun.

About that space ending, well to be honest I just wanted a nice ending :-P, but still, here are a few theories that could explains what happens:

  • First of all, pulling the trigger is what makes you travel back to the future. So after killing Hitler, you would be landing in a reality that no longer exists, while in the second case you're just existing in your new reality.
  • If you're still not convinced by the first explanation, I got another one ;-). For now, you just kidnapped Hitler, but until you kill him, there's no confirmation that his rise to power would not happen. What if you decided to drop Hitler back in Germany a few years later?... (I can't imagine what a Hitler with alien knowledge could do!...)
  • Ok, that second one is pretty weak. But here's the last theory:  Perhaps your existence was never linked to Hitler's rise to power, but just to the fact that Hitler grew up to adulthood. You can draw your own conclusions from there...

One of those explanations is the one I had in mind when I made this game, but feel free to come up with your own ;-)
