    Using this as an attack on OSX is really grasping at straws, no? It tells you what it does, its an nteresting game actually. If you need to troll apple based on this, get a life.

    B3CK- That's a good idea actually, and you win when you destroy the file that is the game on your opponents computer.

    This, unfortunately, is very old..... like the idea of having a relationship between a process and an enemy character in a Unix port of Doom...... then going multiplayer and finding out which system is taken out first.

    Still fun though.

    Because its a video game and therefore not real life so personal morals aren't necessarily an issue seeing as its all make believe?

    Even though there is a disclaimer stating its purpose and consequences, how many people will read that? How many of us read the EULA of games we install?

    I do. It makes good sense to know what the hell you're installing and what could and what couldn't be considered their fault.

    Clearly people apply the morals of real life to games just like they do when they watch a movie. Oh wait I thought the point was entertainment... well clearly that and life are two different things.

    I do not even know how to respond to something this stupid.

    the only people who whine about violence in video games are the ones who don't understand it is entertainment. like judge whats his face calling it a "murder simulator." that is like calling a violent movie a "murder manual." are their real sickos who will go out and repeat what the see? yes there are, but they are messed up to begin with, and it realy only is a matter of time before they decide to kill anyway. best to be prepared in my oppinion.

    as to the anti-virus people, i can understand theri anxiety. what if you had a "freind" who sent this to you and told you to play it? i mean come on, if you were going to play this and you actualy knew what it was, why would you even bother installing anti-virus? your going to hose your computere anyway. . . .

    a multiplayer would be neat. i might be tempted to play in a sandbox or a VM, just for lols.

    now if you'll excuse me, i have some mac snobs i am going to go make "freinds" with.

    He he just thought of this. When something like this is made for Windows it's called a virus. When its made for Mac it's art.:lol:


    I may be in need of sleep.

    I wouldn't call it anything malicious, it clearly says what it does.

    Clever game, but kinda stupid

    I hope Apple users aren't so confident about OSX that they never back-up.

    Actually, it'll teach them a lesson.
