Game: What is this game? Not a game! 2 minutes!

The other day, I wrote down the sentences: “What is this game? Not a game! 10 minutes!” They were part of something, I believe, Jake Rodkin said on a fairly recent episode of Idle Thumbs as a sarcastic reading of someone’s thoughts on Thirty Flights of Loving. Although, now that I haven’t been able to find when — or even if — he actually said those words in that order, I am also thinking they might have been something I completely made up during one of my 2 AM drives home while listening to the show. Probably was, maybe.

Either way, though, I thought it might be interesting to make a game matching that exact review. Then, I thought it would be funny to make a 2 minute game instead. That way, I don’t have as much work to do and also the point gets across quicker sometimes.

And thus, as an experiment to learn phaser.io, I present the link to WITGNAG2M. There isn’t much to it. But that’s okay. It’s not a game, “game”, “not-game”, not-not-game, “game-not”, not-it, or anything else. And, in the immortal words of that person-face from that one thing that one time, “deal with it.”
