You Have To... Try This Game.

Short and sweet. Clever. I think you'll enjoy it.

The review I posted:

For some reason playing this game has made me very happy. Must be that song. :)

It is apparent that every piece of this game has been well thought out - I admire its craftsmanship and presentation. I think the parody, or commentary on games, succeeds in large part because of this high level of polish. Well done.

I particularly liked the way that normally implicit, interactively communicated information is instead communicated through text. It's an interesting inversion, and of course much easier to implement. :)

This game has inspired me: Forget pandering to the masses! Just parody those who pander to the masses - even easier! Though I suppose that is still pandering, just to a different audience. How about a game that panders to both the jaded devs and the fun-seeking masses? Now that is what I call win. Excellent.

I see a use for cornandbeans' song {Colossus} coming up...

I liked the part where you ah, burn the rope. That was intense.

And I liked the song at the end.


edit: <- ohay I'M 1337!

I'm going to... sleep now.

I don't find it very funny Sad

Maybe the song's the funny part; I was playing without speakers on.

That must have been the fastest time ever taken for me to complete a game.

And that song is funny.

Michael: I'm pretty sure you can only move left and right, but you should be able to jump.
