  1. This is great. It was a really smart choice to have the news items scrolling up throughout the day, providing that extra bit of meaningful time pressure as you wait for more suitable events, perhaps rearranging articles in case none come in.

    My favorite bits were the apparent contradictions (paraphrasing): jetfighters set new airspeed record; no survivors in experimental jetfighter crash. I imagine the air force PR person tasked with sending out the first of those two press releases, struggling to put a positive spin on the day’s tragic events lest their family lose more privileges.

  3. This is one of the coolest little games I’ve played in a while.
    I love how elegantly it makes its statement while still being original and entertaining.

  4. Brilliantly insightful and one of the best agitpop games so far. Excellent find!

  5. Someone able to run the game now?

  6. I loved the end. And what happens when you restart. “We have found a new wife and child for you”

  7. Brilliant. Then it went meta and got even more brilliant. Then I laughed and cried. Well done.
