For the full game download, go here: [link]

The story follows Virgil Birmire straight after the events of Episode I. His brother has just woken from his coma, but he had already signed the contract with Mr. Smiles to put him out of his misery. Will he be able to save his brother before Mr. Smiles carries out the assassination? Will he ever forgive Dominique for signing him up in the first place? And will AnimeFan21 ever adapt to his real life friends? Play episode II and find out!

Finally, after ten months of waiting, Thanatos Contract Episode II: Confrontation is now available to download! I must thank my team, which has grown a bit since the days of just Kat and myself. Thank you. And I thank the fans that we do have. I know our following isn't huge, but that isn't what matters. As long as someone out there is enjoying Thanatos Contract, I still have the drive to continue the series. Thank you! As always, if you find anything wrong with the game, gameplay or writing wise, tell me. I'm a big boy; I can handle constructive criticism. Have fun!

this game started out with a "wat" and ended with a "whoa whoa WAT??" XD srsly, the beginning with the dating sim made me think "did that idiot release wrong game?" lol ...

anyway, i enjoyed this tons more than the first one :D i like how the side characters finally come into limelight with their personalities, while it stays wholly virgil's story. the pace is even and clean without AF and Dominique's cute bonding moments distracting poor victor's doom here. The ghastlier themes are mostly toned down here to make way for the characters, and that's a good move I think, as long as it's made up for in the later episodes. Although I do like how loneliness is more significant here. Poor AF can never chug enough vodka to kill his alone free-times ... in any case he's an awesome character XD no one would ever mind that he's a perv or a cynical reality shut-in, he's got his own sense of cool anyway. i also love dominique's leap of badass at the end, although virgil is the one that really completes this.

the only thing that bothers me is that AF doesn't have a real big range of facial emotions - maybe it's just me but most of his facial expressions aren't all that different from each other. I dunno - that would be katimusprime's problem, although i do love her work in this otherwise.

btw, what's the music that plays while virgil and dominique are conversing and waiting for AF's arrival by bus (right before his very first appearance)? i like it, i'd like to own it if possible.

Anyway that's that - i'll most definitely be waiting for episode III! :D good luck

Heh, I wanted to throw people off in the beginning. I guess I just wanted to troll. XD

And thank you! I was afraid it wouldn't turn out as good as the first episode. Of the characters, AF is probably my own personal favorite, though each character kind of embodies different aspects of myself, though I was also inspired by conversations I used to have with three online friends of mine.

Hmm...I'll have to bring that up with Kat. AF probably doesn't have as many facial expressions as Dominique, which I believe she has less than Virgil has (he has the most).

I believe the song you are talking about is "-Yin-" by Back-From-Purgatory, which can be found on the Newgrounds Audio Portal (or the music folder of the game, the song with Yin in the name). If that's not the song you are talking about, I apologize.

Thanks! The third episode will be the last one most likely, so I hope it will come to a satisfying conclusion!

Oh. My. Lord.

That was just BRILLIANT. I..was totally not expecting that at the end. I won't say any spoilers for any of the lurkers, of course, but...well, first of all, I couldn't believe Virgil had the tenacity to do such a thing, but fortunately he (hopefully) won't get in trouble for it...

And I really liked the interactions between AF/Dominique. It may have been extremely awkward, but I also found it oddly cute. And starting the game off like you did was just brilliant. I almost thought I had the wrong game. Trolling much? xD

I wonder who Mr. Smiles' next victim will be...:eyes: Anyhow, everything else aside, I am just TERRIFIED by that mask. :'x

I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) Virgil got pretty desperate, but I won't say any more in case people look at the comments.

Thanks, I really tried to develop the chemistry between the three friends (though Virgil was kind of an ass in that department). AF is probably my favorite character, so I made sure to give him plenty of screen time. And yeah, I had trolling in mind when I made the beginning, which I guess is appropriate for AF. XD

Episode III, for the moment, will be the last episode, so everything should be solved. Again, thanks for playing!
