I sold the gun and won the game


>a game where you commit suicide 
>41 in the title
Top kek.

u made the same joke half a year ago lil bro the dementia getting to u

i love this game so much

use INSIGHT and items/abilities that regenerate mana to WIN


immediately fully loaded the chamber, spun it, fired and died. 10/10

Got both endings and won with insight.


bulet go brrr


i have said to myself 3 times in 3 different games of this, "I swear this is going to kill me..." and then my bullet kills me. why does this happen to me ;-;


Oh I hated it, until I finally beat it. 

10/10 would recommend

Fun and challenging. Very addicting, but also extremely frustrating sometimes.

why am i so bad at this gaem

Unique gameplay concept that was quite addicting. Great job! 

quite a bit of gold

so...  piggy bank is actually increasing prices for some reason

once you knew the trick its pretty ez actually heheh i got the 10round guns used it in final challenge hehehe what about you?

this game fiils comedic it reminds of a game where theire was a knight that ordered a pizza but his castle is too big so he faces some  problems he was a sort of a king but also a knight 

good game suicide simulator

I think i did something wrong.

naah you actually won

oh really? 

I like it

*spitting blood* I...I think I did it!


The piggy bank makes items more expensive for some reason?

alternative final

actually theire are other alternative finals like did you saw the monster of the see  i think its a sort of ending theire too

i did it! after a few failed tries, i finally succeeded.


i thought insight was really bad until i realized it worked until i rerolled


I have a question for more experienced players. Is dodge and evade the same stat? if so could you hypothetically get to 100% dodge/evade and not get hit ever?

evade is the bullet hitting the helmet, dodge is the bullet completely missing you


I just have to comment here that the graphics are excellent! The colours, the pixel art, the font... did you share any asset by any chance?


This is, all things considered, a really charming game! Bravo!

What a great game! xD

getting a larger gun feels really unfair as i can go hunderds of duds with the standard revolver, but one shot with a bigger revolver and i get a killing shot, and with how expensive they are, i only really see the need to get them at the final challange

I'm kinda late but, the large revolver helps for doing combo, you can put the minimum and with the perk of mana (the one that it cost 15 mana and tells you the next if is blank or bullet) you can keep pulling the triger until a bullet shows, then you do a roll and start again, if you get the one that add +2 of money each time is a blank space then you can get very rich in a short time.
That's what i atleast did 

Question: Does anyone knows what makes the store reset its content?

(sorry for late response) for what i think, you have to spin the charger (where you put the bullets, idk how is the name in english), after that there are new items in the store until you do it again.
said that i can go back to my previous message, a larger gun can make you produce money for a longer time with the combo i said, so you don't have to worry about losing a item you want from the store.
hope this helps ya in the game 

So it's based on the number of times the barrel spins? I always think when I reach 500 gold the shops resets, so if I see a good revolver in the begining of the game I can never get it...


Shop resets after every 3rd shoot.




Nice to see trans representation lol.

you never even see the face, how do you know theyre trans?

i iz rich

нормальная тема!!!!


its fun but its really gets my jimmys going when i die 

Awesome game! Very engrossing, and easy to get addicted to. Love the mix of genres, this is something I hadn't ever pictured. Great job.


Ad an endless mode. I really want to see how far I can take my runs.

it is !!!

(1 edit) (+1)

this game is fun but man it hurts getting good items and upgrades and one unfortunate crit shot ends it all (btw how does the shop refreshing work)


The game was very difficult at first but once I figured out a reliable strategy I managed to get through the entire game without taking any damage. Really well made!

what strategy was it? im stuck on the first few levels.


I don't want to spoil too much, because part of the fun is finding the strategy, but I'll give some hints

1: You don't need to worry about getting hit if you know where the bullet is

2: Spells are more useful than you think

3: The more empty slots there are, the less likely you are to get shot

I advise learning what all the spells do and seeing how they work
