A while ago, there were all these comments on Twitter about the different stretch goals for James Wallis’ “Alas Vegas” kickstarter. On a random impulse (both because I love James Wallis & his games, and because I like to make fun of all these Kickstarter campaigns that are everywhere), I wrote:
“If the KS for
@JamesWallis‘ ALAS VEGAS reaches £20K, I write a completely unrelated mini game just for the hell of it and put it on the net.”
And it did.
So I did.
Oh no… you went and did it again. You’re sitting there reading the comments. The news article itself was actually pretty interesting… so why the hell didn’t you just leave it? Why did you enter this realm of trolling, strawmen, false dichotomies, badly concealed agendas, and ideological sewage?
It’s too late now. You feel yourself being drawn into it. Into the comment itself. That one, on the screen, there.
It’s not just somebody’s warped, malicious, imbecilic and ignorant idea anymore.
Now it’s reality. And you’re inside it.
Luckily, you brought your friends.
