Why isn't Kurt Vonnegut's influence seen in more video games? Kotaku

Intrigued by the Kurt Vonnegut reference. Curious if the developer has the family's blessing.

Nice to see another game by Shaun! Sorry, but gotta pass since it's an RPG.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

Which is by far the best part of the package. Still, I suppose at least this game's better than Dead Trigger.

It's not an RPG, it's a FPS, or FPU (first person unshooter) maybe?

It's exactly what it says in the description, "a very short art game". I find the graphics pleasant, and the concept and gameplay interesting enough. Controls are iffy and it's tough to move without accidentally discharging the gun, but it's free, and I agree with Gabrien, it's the best FPS of the week if the competition is Dead Trigger
