Pretty cool game, really fun to play! I love the bizarre movement on his arms. 

Ps: the sensitivity was really low, it was kinda hard to turn.

Hey I saw this game on Mark's stream and just had to try it for myself. Really cool game! I wouldn't mind seeing a full game made out of this.

I had to play this just based on the gag in the trailer with the guy on the bridge which made me laugh.

it's a funny concept for a game and i do think it could lead to some really hilarious stuff if it was developed more and taken further. Thanks for the laughs!

Saw this on Mark's live stream. Too bad he didn't even try to avoid picking up the sword! It's a really fun concept. I wish the game was longer.

It pained me, but yeah, the game could use a bit more clarity. Thanks for playing!

Really good looking game, wish there was some background music. I also wish you explored the concept a bit more. Could definitely make a pretty big game exploring the concept though.

A very fun and silly game, i like how there are multiple ways to get to the end. Id defenitely love to see more done with the concept, like how you couldnt go in the side of the win room with a sword because of the ledge with the rope, that sort of thing could make for a great puzzle game similar to human fall flat.

Really fun game, and if anything the "known bug" of the left arm almost enhanced the games overall intentional silliness.

This kind of game immediately evoked ideas of games like Human Fall Flat and other silly physics based games and that is not a bad thing. Not being able to control your hands is a novel idea and I'd love to see more.

Hahahaha this was really good! I liked that you could either be really peaceful, or go in and murder everyone, or be really peaceful and then go back and murder everyone! :)

Also my hand closing the door as I tried to go through it was a nice touch (no pun intended).

Nice work! Would love to see this expanded.

I liked it great job! But I didn't like just one thing which is when the camera go of the screen, so I can't see what is happening!

Haha, what a fun/funny game, love it! I like the premise with out of control, it fits very nicely, the art/audio was effective too, great job!
