I have noticed a few problems that I have not resolved yet in in IE 7 with sound. The work seems to function well enough in Mozilla-based browsers (Firefox) as well as Safari (Windows or Macintosh)
The entire work is dependant on .gifs so if things slow down, reload the page.
This is unfortunately, a work that is always in progress.

"I said this game is one of the most important in gaming history, which I meant for two reasons. First, [the creator] has used a video game (successfully, I might add) to explore an important socio-cultural event. This is, hopefully, the first step towards the acceptance of video games as a legitimate medium for the expression of serious thought. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, it is one of the only psychological explorations of the Columbine killers ever completed, and its sincerity is evident in the care displayed in the design of the game. It reminds us that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the murderers of Columbine, were victims of Columbine, as well." - Ryan Moore, The Pale Writer
