Create and defend the common knowledge from the vectorial class. Liberate the passive consumers from the domain of the market.

The game can be won and is intended to be short, don't complain about it :-)

Clear and beautiful, if a little simplistic

Of course, copyright/copyleft is not quite this straight forward. There are many different ways ownership of symbolic capital is constrained and circulated. It is always fun to run a <a href=" .exe?f=tess&state=4001:i0pkqs.1.1">Tr ademark Search</a> for things like "Bible," "Water," or "Truth" to see how many corporations have tried to make the words themselves private property. There are so many trademarks and copyrights that only hold up until they are sufficiently challenged. But even if this game misses most of that, it does a fine job of promoting free culture, and unlike most political games, it looks and plays wonderfully.

Needs music, needs easier controls, needs a goal (if there was one and I didnt notice, it needs an easier one), but still cool like no ones business.

Good idea, decent execution

The idea was good, and the message was simple: it is wrong to put a price on things that the people who made wanted to be free. The things corporation offers are not as good, and not as organic.

However, the execution of the game was somewhat lacking. The controls were difficult to use, and this just made it frustrating to play. However, the idea - as I said - was very neat. If the controls were improved slightly it would be far better.

Not enough explanation.

This concept of this game is very neat, and it could have potentially been a very fun, engaging game. The problem with this game is that there is very little explanation as to what your goal is and how to reach that goal. Unfortunate.

Keep your communism to yourself, you filthy hippy

Nah, just kidding. Nice game. I wish the heads had just a little bit stronger pull, though. This game manages fun for a little while, even though I'm not particularly good at it, which I think is awesome.
