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.

This truly is a "Shitty Fucking Art Game".

So true. This is what 90% of the art games out there are like.

Not everything needs a message

I do believe that games are a form of art, but I believe the value of a game as a work of art isn't measured in the depth or profoundness of its message but in how fun it is, and if there is an intended message, how fun it is for that message to get across. I mean, art is supposed to stimulate the mind, right? So if I'm bored to death by the game I'm playing, even if I understand the message, then it's not very convincing, is it? Every good work of art uses its medium to its advantage, and if the point of a game is just to have a text-based message with almost zero thought put into level design or controls, then write a freaking book. In fact, that would just be easier, wouldn't it? I'm fine for games that have a message, but only ones that avoid text in favor of gameplay to convey it, even if they're very minimalistic.

I'm glad someone decided to say something about it, but I'm deducting a point for this game's very existence being hypocritical.

A hilarious look at a pretentious genre

Shitty Fucking Art Game takes the vapid pseudo-philosophical garbage of your standard art "game" and pushes it down a flight of stairs.

Shitty Fucking Art Game is fun with a message, a consept that seems to be lost on the makers of many art games (AustinBreed for example). At there core games should be entertaining and enjoyable. More often then not art games end up being bland uninteresting stories where the player is beaten over the head with "the futility of it all" and "society is bad". Shitty Fucking Art Game show how a game can use satire to get a message across. The player isnt force fed a message but rather the silliness of the target is brought to the forefront leading the player to draw the conclusion the creator intended.

Well done sir!

Only Mr.Sarcasm... but what about Mrs.Gameplay?

I'm a "art-game" lover. seriously...
...but you got the point; more than once I saw crappy games sold as "art games"...nevermind the gameplay was crap, nevermind there was non-sensical story; they still managed to find some meaning, somehow (life, death, love, misery, "human condition", ...).

Jimmy "This is crap."
Timmy "But THIS game represent the difficult social situation of our time! Don't you see that dot? It's clearly a metaphor how our bad politicians! And what about that gorgeus red pixel stunned in the air? THAT is a symbol of the new generation, afflicted by drugs!"
Jimmy "WoW. I see I'm not smart enough to get the DEEP meaning of this wonderful game"

So When I started to play your game, I was expecting pure irony and sarcasm.
The point is: there's good sarcasm and there's bad sarcasm. You could have done it better; but I appreciate the effort, the world needs people who contest actual art... I mean, we arrived at the point we appreciate Shit just 'cause it's art (I'm pointing at you, Piero Manzoni)!!! We need criticism! Otherwise, how could we recognise art from crap?

I hope you'll keep making indie flas jewels :)
