"Hi, my name’s Terry Cavanagh [previously], and I’m an indie game developer. I started this blog in March 2012 to talk about the sort of freeware games that I find interesting, and to share those games with more people. Thank you for reading!"

Exactly. I found MeFi through memepool. The circle is now complete; now I am the master.

So, re: memepool, there is apparently an RSS feed at www.memepool.com/memepool.rss but this Cavanagh post somehow has a timestamp of Oct 7, 2005 according to GReader. Weird.

It seems this was only posted to memepool as a dare

The first post may have been. The next sixteen probably aren't. Unless it was a very severe dare.

The side-scrolling suicide-intervening dove game poses far too many challenges at once. I couldn't save more than two high-powered executives from jumping before everything just fell apart. The game's near-impossibility reinforces its overall sardonic, dystopian theme. But despite all that, I LOL'd.

DU: "the brony-based animation tutorials!"

Posted by JHarris as a comment in Metafilter's last pony thread. I'm as excited as anyone that the dare post has seemed to spark a Memepool resurgence, but if it weren't there, the good stuff still has a way of filtering through.

That'll teach me for not clicking on the link

As someone who cares more about Terry Cavanagh and indie games than whether or not memepool's back, this is pretty awesome.

I wish memepool had a twitter account so I could follow it in my life. Someone get on that.

They have an RSS feed. I don't know if that will let you "follow it in your life" though.

The Epic Sax Guy game is FPP-worthy just on its own.

So apparently Increpare (a ludicrously productive free indie game making machine in his own right) is taking the reins for a bit.

Indeed. I try to do what I can to find stuff that hasn't been subject to EXTREME exposure, but I am only one person and I also acknowledge that cool stuff gets found all the time.
