Well it's a flash game and it's free, but parents should monitor what their children are accessing online.
And it really shouldn't be any big surprise that there are sicko's out there that would actually enjoy stuff like this. Comes to no surprise to me.

lol, I really liked the game. Pretty fun and simple mechanics to torture. Wish the rating systems and media weren't such a**es and we could have full games with stuff like that on consoles and in big budget games.
Also, if a person thinks playing or liking this game makes someone insane or a psycho killer, that person is the one that should go to a doctor and check his mentality.

So virtual torture demands action where as actual torture and waterboarding of real people does not?

Yeah it's a really stupid game and very juvenile, but of the people who have played it what % of them are actually going to go out and do it.

What about all those people who torture for sexual pleasure? Shouldn't they be classified as the worst people, along with their willing partners?

I also like how the studies have been happening for 50 years, in which 30 of them (3/5ths, more than 50%) would have been based off of TV and Movies than Video games.
