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.

Does anyone else see the irony here?

So... you made this game because you don't like other games that try to use a bland message as an excuse to pass off a shitty game as "artful".

"Don't make shitty art games" = bland message that attempts to excuse shitty game.

The fact that it's all "satirical" (read: artsy) does not, by your own admission, make it a good game. Therefore, you receive a low score.

PsychoPop responds:

I'm glad you caught that. The game is indeed very meta, and that's intentional.

However, it was not my intention to make the game shitty nor use the satirical nature as an attempt to make up for its shittiness.

If you think the game's bad, then you think it's bad; I won't try to argue with that. However, I can say with certainty I did not make it artsy in order to make up for the potential badness of the game.

Extremely funny

I personally am a fan of art games, but I have to admit Flixel spawned many pieces of random "artsy" shit. The best part is, if you had announced it as an actual art game, and changed the music, it could pass off as a rela art game. Your parody did a great job, misterArty McArtson.

This game speaks the Tooth!

there have been so many art-pixel-shit games lately.

by far the most annoying ones in my opinion are the platforming ones where you have to collect endless power-ups to get too the end.

and the artist trys to include some kind of meaningful deep message along the way. but its bogus (and probably cliche) so they have to make it as cryptic as possible,hide it behind creepy 8-bit graphics and music. and pretend their stupid game is actually has a 'deep' message!

these games are a complete waste of time. but yours isn't. thanks for making it!
