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.

Shitty fucking nightmare, it is

It won't make Friday any better even if Rebecca Black tell us that Friday is a sarcasm towards US music industry.

Since you have shown us how horrible your game can be instead of how great your game can be, I shall show you how strict my rating criteria can be instead of easy tens. So here you are, NO STARS.

Oh, I get it...

You're sick of people making poorly made, uninteresting games and passing them off as "art." So you made a poorly made, uninteresting game and passed it off as "comedy."
Each game should be judged by it's individual merits - there are some crappy art games, I agree, but there are crappy games in every category. If you're going to just write off all games that have a message beyond "kill enemies collect points," then you don't have to play them - I'm sure someone out there is making another Angry Birds clone for you.
As for this particular game, making a better control scheme would do wonders. Also, try to make some original and funny jokes besides "art games are stupid."

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.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

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.
