A sim­ple sidescrolling crit­i­cal game that ques­tions the impor­tance of goals and authority in games. There is only one way to win the game: ‘don’t kill the cow’, but is winning the game worth let­ting your sis­ter starve? How much do the sim­ple phrases like ‘you win’ and ‘you lose’ mean to the player?

Even though it was a really quick game I really enjoyed it!
I felt bad for killing her but it was worth it. The cow was top priority. XD
Here's my gameplay video on it if you want to see it: Youtu.be

Hope you enjoy it. Would love to see another game like this. :D

I like the concept, It's not really fun though. however I kinda wish there was some sort of secret loop hole you know? Like say bake some bread? Because I feel the cow does not deserve to die either haha He's adorable hahaha

I won't start with the oudated graphics part. It was too stupid to even think about.
Plain stupid doesn't even tell the reason you hate the game. But you know what? I feel like you were a very idiotic person that I wouldn't stand arguing with.

I like the idea, execution needs a little work though.

The song was written and recorded by my friend Alex Underwood: Alexunderwood.weebly.com but I sure wish I could play like that!
