The Entire Screen of One Game (08 Dec 2014 at 16:12)
This weekend was the 31th Ludum Dare, the 48h video game programming competition (which I have participated in many times). The theme was "Entire Game on One Screen". But this time I had several prior obligations such as flying to Zurich, where I now write you from. But, undaunted, and perhaps even freed by the inability to apply the normal polish, I put together this quick weird game, "Entire Screen of One Game." It can't be won, at least formally, and exists only to destroy your mind, but people seem to be getting it. Use the arrow keys and space.

Shift is like a debug mode (or "Second Quest"), and allows you to pan around and zoom in and out (with -/=).

Hold down left and space. The pieces stack up and eventually escape the game field.

the link on the left ("@tome") of http://entire.spacebar.org/ is formatted incorrectly. There's a colon missing after the "http".

since the times of C64 I've been reading of how "certain games could cause dizzyness, nausea, bla bla bla". Never experienced, and deemed it bullshit.

I stand corrected.

Creativity, at once self-kind, generous, playful, life giving. IMO intimately connected to a daring willingness to remain open beyond the immediately obvious, the stage for all manner of novel, interesting, wonderful new things. A meaningful point of being human i'd suggest. That, and.. it rocks! =)

Sweet! I find myself inexplicably sad when I get the squares all the way to the top left and they escape the box and fall into the void. It's like a universe is dying.

That is 2 cool man....trying to concentrate on the box within the box...Mindfuck is an inaccurate description...I think the winning is in just being able to maintain that focus, even for a short time is satisfying.

BTW HAPPY 2015 BRO.
