Anyway, this is still a reviews page, not a downloads one. So people come here to know about games, not just to download them.

I always find it fascinating when people apparently find it easier to register and post a complaint rather than taking ten seconds to access and process readily available information.

I think the comic author you are talking is Miguel Ángel Martín. He's great. I really like his Brian the brain. But I agree with you: his comics can be shocking. But, if you can get past that first moment, there is a real interesting, although crude, critical view about of society.

Yes, that's the thing. It's like a comic author, of which I never recall the name (he is Spanish, so I have some of his comics on the comic magazines collection, but looking for him will take some time). I'm used to violence on comics, usually extreme violence ends being so surreal that's it's laughable. But this guy mixed violence, sex and thing that on other people would be interesting sci-fi gimmicks and makes shocking comics, all with a cute drawing style.

He is the only comic author that can make me feel sick, and it's all due to the way he does things. The style and context can be much more shocking than what is happening.

In pure amount of blood, there are many games which surpass it by now. Though the thing is that the toughest scenes in Harvester are all embedded into a context. It's not just violence, but there's always a psychological aspect which makes it harder to stomach - simple as this setup may be at times.

For example, there is a scene in which a group of children are eating their own mother - who is alive and not struggling, but simply takes it (she even talks to the protagonist in the scene, remarking on the action). That's the sort of thing I don't really need to see in graphic detail.

I saw once a video from this game, and even though I'm not shocked easily nowadays, it was gruesome.

[Mr Creosote] Alright, today we'll be talking about Harvester. This is a game I bought in a garage sale years ago and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since. This was the chance to try it out finally.
