Cool! Kinda reminds me of Passage, for the pixel art, simplicity, and little floating heart.

Poking about the gamasutra page brought me knowledge of "Barkley: Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden" which looks, um, fantastic.

Why must the female character always be the object of the gaze?

In terms of meta-experimental games, I preferred his Storyteller

There really needs to be more games based on Calvino.

"You Have To Burn The Rope" makes me want to punch things, preferably anyone who was involved in designing it, making it or thinking it's funny. It's everything irritating and dorky and unfunny about "gamer culture" distilled into a flash game. "Barkley: Shut up and Jam: Gaiden", on the other hand, appears to be brilliant. I hope it runs under WINE.

BSUAJG was amazing. One of the most hilarious RPG's I have ever played!

I will never look at B-Ball the same. Remember, only you can help prevent Chaos Dunks.

You Have To Burn The Rope is the Game of the Year 2008. I weep for the ones rooting for Grand Theft Auto IV, but then I tolerate no dissent.

The rope. Have you burned it?

(It kills the boss. Have you killed the boss?)

I fear for those reading this comment in years to come, hybrid hybrid

Okay I have been playing Barkley: Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden for the last 6 hours. It is completely insane. And awesome!

Completely insane, awesome, and refuses to work correctly on my computer.

Oh, and on a less snarky level....

An email exchange with Farbs I had around the game's release revealed that ROM CHECK FAIL is written in Python!
