A small game poem / notgame inspired by the thousands of senseless killings committed in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime. Takes about three minutes to play through and requires no gaming skills. Originally for my GameTrekking project in 2011.

This game was ported to GameMaker/HTML5 in 2022 by myself, Raven Lickey, and Grayson Molesworth. The port is true to the original Flash version, except that the end screens were notably removed. The original Flash version can still be played at Newgrounds or downloaded here.

Content warning: disturbing themes.
