It's a new month! And what better time to upload a new submission... but what's this? A new game from me? A game that... isn't an Impossible Quiz?! GOOD LORD MAN!

This is my take on the standard run and jump platformer. You control Gentle Sod, collect coins and jump on enemies heads! (How original)

Anyways, have fun!

lol. I actually left playing this game till I had the time, and had it in my deviation stack saved for later. I finally got round to having a go today...
Since I found the game to be very short, I find that I still have time to burn, so I will attempt a thorough review of the Game.

Gentle Sod seems to break the mould of gaming, it is a game portraying a deep and relevant message to today’s times. Like us, Gentle Sod lives in a material world, where riches get you places. It's either collect money by stealing from others, or die. However, despite the world of choice that he lives in, he is a slave to the laws that his world was built upon. Really, Gentle Sod has only two choices; either follow the system or not. He fights heroically to defend his free will by refusing to be controlled by his puppeteering masters, farting in the face of those who try to control him.

By his complete pacifism, Gentle Sod slowly opens up the mind of the "players", who attempt to work out what the "game" is all about... Gentle Sod turns the tables; the player, becomes the played. After frantically trying to understand, seeking answers or instructions the player hit's a sudden realisation, and now they understand....but do they.

The player at this point, can either see it as a joke on the surface. They have been "trolled" or played... or they can attempt to see a deeper meaning. listen to the music, look and analyse the visual display of the world, the sign which tempts the player to move forward, but slurps when clicked on showing its emptiness, the money which spins hypnotically and which mocks you with funny noises when clicked on, and the mind of the poor character Gentle Sod, who's only possessions are his hat, socks and handsome moustache.

If forces the player to question themselves...what is the meaning of this game...why am I playing it....and even what is the meaning of me playing it....what is the meaning of LIFE???

Towards the end of the game, at the end of time and in darkness, Gentle Sod seems to lose his life by spontaneous human combustion. But was is really spontaneous, or was it Gentle Sods Choice...by his death, and example. Gentle Sod will live on in the minds of the player. Some will laugh, some will shed a tear, and others will do nothing. But never fear, because Gentle Sod's life continues, this is clearly displayed by the life meter. He still has three lives left, and he lives on, in a freer and fuller world.

It's a game which penetrates reality, will anyone accept the challenge this game is presenting? will anyone fight for the cause of Gentle Sod, against oppression and suffereing? It truly is an exhausting adventure.

I give this game a 10/10, mainly because of the Pacman sound effect when you click on the Coins meter :D
