Hi folks,

I read all of these discussions with great interest. You all bring up points that I never even considered while writing the game. I do not think I'll be adding humans anytime soon, however I would not object to one or perhaps two more worlds to make the game a bit longer.


As for the game being similar to old eighties games, I find that slightly funny as I have never in my life played any of them nor do I know what they contain, or at least close to nothing. So it's actually by shere coincidense that these particular similarities exist, I just added whatever came to mind.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall
P.S. I still think humans or at least one particular human is being killed, as I am the voice of both the gorillas and the bats. Laughs. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Thomas Ward" <thomasward1...@gmail.com>

Hi Michael,
that's a very good point. There are people out there that don't have an
issue fighting Gorillas, monsters, or non-human enemies, but do object
to killing humans. Even if the humans in question are bad humans. There
is a social line here that developers need to be aware of.
At any rate I think the lack of humans in this case is a good thing for
several reasons. One of them being as the game stands now it reminds me
so much of the classic Atari and Nintendo games it isn't funny. In
particular I am reminded of Donkey Kong 64. In DK 64 you start out in a
jungle on Donkey Kong isle and you move on to caves, ancient temples,
etc until the final boss level. This game has that kind of feel, and I'd
hate it if these people end up ruining that experience by adding too
many features and suggestions to the game.

I kind of like the fact that it's creatures fighting each other and
that there aren't humans to be killed. That makes it far less likely
that parents will object to their children playing the game. When you
include the killing of people, that crosses a social line which Mr.
Benfall currently doesn't have to worry about. I haven't heard of any
parents other than perhaps some vegetarians who would object to all
the animal killing. Lets not forget that this game is aimed at people
as young as fourteen. It just so happens to be fun for us older folks
also.
