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 it? How much do the sim­ple phrases like ‘you win’ and ‘you lose’ mean to the player?

Oh, and I really like putting the player in awkward situations. Enjoy!

First playthrough: I killed the cow. No questions asked.
Second playthrough: I killed the wife. No questions asked.

I'm still not sure if I won or lost.

Well...she stopped nagging me, and the cow is still alive. Win, win, I'd say.
