I Killed Two Family Members to Enjoy "Papers, Please"


Yes, that's right. I did it. I killed off my uncle and mother-in-law just to be able to enjoy a video game. While they were around I just couldn't concentrate and have fun - not with them constantly bugging me, saying they're cold and hungry or feeling sick... And I just couldn't both provide food, heat and  medicine for the whole family of four and play my game without thinking back about it all.

So they left me no choice. I went on and denied them medicine when they needed it - fully aware that they were going to die. But I've already lost a family once because I couldn't feed them - and it's not something that makes you enjoy your video games, is it?

Do I regret my crime? Well, yeah, I started to wish I'd kept them alive after I got a little better at my job and started taking bribes - although only small ones. Still, I was able to move to a new apartment, adopted my niece, bought an expensive present for my sickly offspring and was finally able to complete Papers, Please. Yes, now I sometimes wish I could start everything over and look for a better way. Sometimes I just can't fall asleep and keep thinking that...

Oh, sorry, there's someone at the door. Must be the water delivery.

Hello, Mr Tonich. It is so good that you have decided to confess. Makes my job so much easier. I can not guarantee that the Ministry will take your sincere confession into consideration - you are a murderer, after all.
Anyway, please, come with me. GLORY TO ARSTOZKA!

About Tonichone of us since 12:03 AM on 05.06.2013

Hi everyone!

Please, call me Tonich. That's what everyone calls me. I live in Nizhniy Novgorod - a pretty large and picturesque city in Central Russia (yep, that's it on the header image).

Currently at the age 30, I am a taught historian, reluctant archivist, occasional tour guide and aspiring composer/musician. I write songs, play guitar and sing (badly) for the art rock act The Heckfish. Oh, and I also play videogames. :)

My gaming habits started with the NES era, and my favourite consoles are Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and PlayStation 2. I'm more of a PC player currently, so why don't you check out my Steam Page?

You can also listen to my music here.

I have been blogging here on Destructoid since spring 2014. Here's a selection of my blogs you can read if you'd like to know me better:
