This is a small test game I made for my friends awhile ago. All you can do in this game is run and shoot. The main target is to destroy the amoeba so it stops rapping in Russian.

Name of the game comes from the final words of the rap song which amoeba sings.

Here is a review I got from a beta-tester:

It is the only one who is not afraid to cross the line of what is permitted knows how far he can go

Minimalistic design hides the austerity of life of the author. As soon you start the game, it is absolutely clear — we are surrounded by an allusion of Eden, where the ball plays both the role of the Tempter and the Creator. A truly open, free world ends with a circle of green bushes.

Of course, soon it becomes clear that the circle is for reason here — it is an obvious reference to the Ouroboros.
But back to the story, which can be traced, once you seek the hidden meaning. What kind of amoeba is it that runs away from you? This amoeba beckons you, and at the same time tells to leave the game.
"Ty iebanootyi!" — it says to you rhythmically, alluding to the lack of logic and senselessness of what you do. But it is necessary to continue following the ball.

And at one point, it disappears.

"Freedom!" is the first thought that arises in the mind of yours, and now, finally, you can safely enjoy the Creation. But at the edge of you perception, you hear the words: "Ty yebanootyy, ty yebanootyy!", and you understand that the amoeba is not lost, it still calls you is a language only it understands.
Running like a squirrel in a wheel around the scene, you finally manage to do the impossible — you go beyond. But once you accelerate, you fall into the abyss, which is the punishment for your excessive ambitions.
After closing the game, the player understands the leitmotif of this creation — it is the only one who is not afraid to cross the line of what is permitted knows how far he can go.

Minimalism, deep philosophy, and graphics making the powerful hardware lag . Ten out of ten.

This is crazy. The song too. It is so easy to get trapped in an empty endless loop of interpreting the meaning.

How even did you find that song... Wow. somehow.
