Yes, I was right to be suspicious. The previously reported Serial Killer Rogue-like was a total fake. It was initially apparently claimed to be some manner of university project but very rapidly reduced down to a plain shoulder-shrug and admission of trolling. Why did he do it?
Because I can? Do trolls need legitimate reasons to do what they do? It was fun and I was bored. I didn't use an existing game as a template and I made the videos using flash. Didn't take that long, maybe an hour for the first game play footage. Much less for the other one. The response was extremely positive though. Didn't expect that. I figured I'd run with it anyway, throwing out possible game play elements. Why not?
Of course, pinch of salt. You can trust his words about as far as you can trust a serial killer's. One thing's for sure, I fear. Expect to see someone to do it.
