Game, game, game and again game is a digital poem, retro-game, an anti-design statement and a personal exploration of the artist's changing worldview lens. Much of the western world's cultural surroundings, belief systems, and design-scapes, create the built illusion of clean lines and definitive choice, cold narrow pathways of five colors, three body sizes and encapsulated philosophy.

Within net/new media art the techno-filter extends these straight lines into exacting geometries and smooth bit rates, the personal as WYSIWYG buttons. This game/artwork, while forever attached to these belief/design systems, attempts to re-introduce the hand-drawn, the messy and illogical, the human and personal creation into the digital, via a retro-game style interface, Hovering above and attached to the poorly drawn aesthetic is a personal examination of how we/I continually switch and un-switch our dominant belief systems. Moving from levels themed for faith or real estate, for chemistry or capitalism, the user triggers corrected poetry, jittering creatures and death and deathless noises. In addition each level contains short videos from the artist's childhood, representing those brief young interactions which spark out eventual beliefs.

Game, game, game and again game is less a game about scoring and skill, and more an awkward and disjointed atmospheric, the self built into a jumping, rolling meander of life.

I always loved this game, I remember playing it on Your site, quite a while ago.
It's got an interesting atmosphere, Good gameplay, and great music.
Also, I found a problem: Unlike the original, the "Video Evidence" doesn't play, if you click it. Otherwise, it's a nice port, from the site, to your newgrounds, jason.

PS: That one guy commenting "You stole this from Jason Nelson" made me laugh much harder then it should have.

I'm so awkward at skill games. :) After meeting my maker so many times, dying becomes so easy. KInda like reality. Learnin' my lessons.
Another maze through life; well done, Jason.

Quite the interesting game!
It took me a while to know what the plot whole was about.

Until it hit me. Reality.

I'd like to enjoy the poetry and art involved, but the game is WAY too graphically busy. I suppose it's not my cup of tea.

Really loved the concept behind each level, and the art style you choose for it... very experimental, very distrubing at some times as well... but it works out amazingly together indeed. I loved the mixture between simple colored-pencil art and the digital doodles... the use you made with text on this game is very interesting as well. Is lovely to see things like this, that even if seem pretty messy, they don't go away from the gaming experience and plataform levels that you should actually think through to succed. Amazing job! This is going to my favorites :D
