If you enjoyed this game, and you're loving the whole extinction theme, I present to you Ari's and my (Benjamin Taylor) game from the first Global Game Jam back in 2009: HornyBuns!

It's fun, brutal, has great music from the infinitely talented Kim Hee Jun, and has sexy devil art! What more could you ask for?!
