Hi my name is Arty McArtson, I am a first year art major at the Art Institute of Williamsburg. I just took my first intro to philosophy course last semester, and now I understand everything about the world! Please enjoy my new postmodern piece, Dear Diary. It is a subtle yet poignant criticism of the modern "doggy dog" society we live in. I hope you enjoy it, and, if you don't, it's probably just too deep for you!

WASD and/or arrow keys move in most cases. The mouse is used to look. Other controls are generally specified or obvious.

Not the most enjoyable game to play, but as this thing is a parody of art games I think it successfully captured that familiar sense of using subpar game mechanics to throw pretentious crap at us.

The only thing that amazes me is how many people don't seem to understand that a game called "Shitty Fucking Art Game" is suppose to be a big smug joke. I actually got a good chuckle out of the quality options in the pause menu.

Still, the game also has all the issues of a bad art game. Purposefully annoying controls on the assassin levels and stair climbing, crappy graphics, and a nonsensical plot make it less enjoyable to play.

In short, this game would only be like a 3 or 4 out of 10 normally, but the subtle and not so subtle jabs at the genre gave me a laugh. Would love to see you sense of humour in something less interactive and see if it was better for it.

Great Satire.

This was a nice parody of all the "deep" art games. The game worked well and it was clever. Also, I could watch my guy fall down the stairs all day.

I love the satire, and the unique 'behind your back' angle. The only thing you should have done more would be an overly-dramatic choice between two characters you don't give a shit about, then it would have covered every art game base.

Where ya been?

I looked at the author name for this game and I was thinking, "Hmmm... I remember this guy from somewhere." Then I remember that awesome flash vid you made, Supergirl. Dude, where were you all this time? Good to see you back and still kickin. Still got the stuff, I see. At least this game is good stuff. Hell, it's the best I've seen from you yet. Hope to see more of you often. Keep up the work.
