Rock beats scissors. Paper beats rock. Scissors beats paper. Loser gets shot.

~ Hints ~

Highlight the "invisible" text below to get some hints, if you need them :)

You should be able to work what job a lot of people do, which will give you a hint for whether they spend a lot of time with rocks, paper or scissors.

Don't worry about Geoff. You saw him die in the introduction.

Use the descriptions (t-shirt colour, gender, etc.) that people give to narrow others down.

You might think a Mayor does a lot of paper work, but what has she been doing all day?

There's only a few guys in blue, and one of them doesn't sound depressed.

Shh... Being a librarian sure is a quiet job.

New girlfriend? And to think, someone else just lost one.

Tailors are forever using scissors, and always do the best t-shirt logos. It should be easy to spot who's wearing the same ones.

Would you give your ex-girlfriend's new partner a paper boat?

Don't ask me how, but rock, paper and scissors are equally represented.

Fun little game!

The hints are quite cryptic, and there are a lot of people to remember, but that adds to the difficulty of the game.


Thanks, glad you liked it.

I was going to add a way of adding notes in game, but- alas, a week is not a long time in development!

I wasn't sure about three of them, but I got lucky and I made it! ...on my second try.

This is a great little game. The small intro and the shooting animation really help setting the tone. Even losing is fun because of it :)

Thanks :)

Glad you made your way through it!
