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 is a really pretentious way to get your point across, but you've got a great one. Art games have become kind of a cop out for the inexperienced or uncreative to get attention. Granted, there are a few that are worth noting, such as Coma, with original concepts, but it's definitely not for everyone. your game was fun though.

Games can be artistic . . .

I must disagree with your opinion. If an artist wants to express his feelings to the world, and he/she has chosen the medium for which they can to be a game, then they can do that and it can still express emotion and deep passion for what they do. You obviously do not understand the term "feeling." I don't enjoy you mocking them, in such a crude fashion. I tend to like those games! I will give you a ten, however, because the game itself was very good.

You do realize that I was expressing my feelings to the world through the medium of video games, right? "Intense dislike for pseudo-intellectual games that try to make up for lack of good gameplay with a message" is a feeling.

However, I am glad you liked the game despite the message. I knew a lot of people would disagree with it, so I tried to make the game decent, too - which I think is the most important part of a game: the game itself.

Perhaps I should clarify that I don't dislike art games, but I dislike bad games, and a fair amount of art games are bad - but have a sort of "if you don't like it you just don't get it" vibe tacked on to them by the authors.

Believe me, if anyone wants art games to exist, it's me. I just want them to be good games in their own right - just like, for example, Dante's Divine Comedy is a great poem even if you only interpret it literally, completely ignoring all the allegorical meaning.

So, again, a lot of people have had the same idea that you do - that I hate art games - but what I really dislike is that art games are being treated like a fad rather than a legitimate idea, and how so many art game makers put the gameplay in the back seat over cramming their message down the player's throat... although I must say, looking back, that I probably crammed my opinion down the players' throat quite a bit, too. Whoops.

Regardless, I'm glad you enjoyed the game itself.
