Recently, I had played a few Farmville style games on my iPhone. They were depressing me because while I could see that the designers and programmers were trying to make something fun, the games were irrevocably corrupted by the business model of tricking kids into spending real money on virtual nothingness. Games where strategy and dexterity have no value. Where there is never a sense of completion, because they just go on forever. Games that are as relentless and numb as the homeless man who asks you for money 10 minutes after you just gave him a dollar. I was envisioning a future where this is the way that all games work. :(
Abobo restored my faith. This game represents everything that is good and holy about games. Thank you to everyone involved in making this game a reality. It was worth all the time invested. Thanks to NG for creating a community where Abobo can live free and strong. This game is a masterpiece, and most importantly, it is a blast to play. Thank you so much, we love you.
