| This game is harder than it looks. Im still watching the youtube walkthrough. The guys who are playing it are currently at the school part and they are planting bombs in the cafeteria. I didn't see that those things in the halls were cameras. They kept getting buggled. Buggled itself was a funny term to use. It made the game a bit less harsh to play. But the game is still about a school shooting. In a reaction point of view, the guys playing it were laughing through it. Since we are a younger generation we are more distant from the effects and the people involved. But they were obvious 4chan users so its no surprise that they would be desensitized to a degree. I would say the older you are and the closer you were to the event, you might feel moral duty to take this seriously even though it is a game designed to get a reaction. I guess back in the 90s people couldn't tell when someone was trying to get a response. You can only save the game in the parking lot and the game might not let you do certain things like if you have the dufflebag you cant equip it inside the school. Im not sure what to do half the time. An objective list would be very helpful in this game. It might have been counting on the player to know what happens next since it was a well known thing at the time. Now everyone might know what happened at the Boston bombing but not so much about columbine.

| I watched a playthough of the game since I can't get my version to work. It seems like Pokemon except it was allot more dull than I expected. I was expecting to be put right at the school front doors with a gun and my goal would be to shoot as many people as possible in a time limit. Instead I was put in the daily life of the shooter Eric. His blonde friend was there too. What the characters said I kinda doubt that thats what there were actually saying. I found the part about DOOM being violent kinda funny. It reminded me that at the time Videogames were under attack for influencing children to be violent. They may or may not. I believe its the parents job to teach the children right from wrong before putting them in a situation where they need to experiment. The playthrough got to the basement where we picked up all the equipment they needed for the event. There was a weird flash back too but the text font was hard to read. I guess it was a point to their drug use. interesting game but I wonder when the shooting comes in.

| It doesn't work. I have reinstalled this game 3 times already and the only thing I can do is hit escape until I get to a point where I wake up and im in bed. It was weird when I got to the black part with text. I didn't know that the character's name is Eric. I'm Eric (fyi). And he has bowling lessons. I already bowl so it was kinda spooky. But then when I see the general look of thing from the title menu to the place where I get stuck, it seems cheaply made. I remember you saying it was the only game he made. I see why maybe. But then again this game was made a while ago so this seems like what it would look like for the time. Controls seem straight forward, if they would work. I soon started button mashing. I found out that the keys "x" through "n" do they same thing as Esc. And that's all I can really write for now. Until I can debug this or find a fixed version, I can't play it.
