    many… the “first” thing cracked me up. So good.

    Just completed a speed run of Passage. I think I nailed it.

    in case anyone is worried that i'm a horrible emotionless person, i really enjoyed Passage and got teary-eyed even though i was prepared for it

    @mlms13 - what is Passage? I haven’t heard about it
    as far as games… my submission is the saddest of all… it doesn’t exist

    @mrspeaker mentioned it in his meetup talk, and a friend recently reminded me that i've been meaning to play it
    < 5 minutes, pixel art, 100x16px
    more art than game

    @andywhite37

    It's 98% art, 2% game

    If you look online, you'll find a devoted following for this "game." However, there are just as many people who hate it (myself included). I get what the author was trying to do (and I won't spoil it here). My interpretation is that it's more an emotional exercise and reflection than it is a game. But that's the point -- Passage is exactly as you interpret it to be. Apparently, many people find it to be an interesting thought experiment that evokes strong emotional responses. I didn't. Personally, I found it to be an interesting metaphor but not at all an interesting application nor game. If such a program moves someone to tears (as recounted by several players), I fear perhaps we've all become too sociopathic. I won't say it's not worth the $0.99, as it's apparently worth much more to many people. But for me personally, I found it to be a waste of five minutes and a dollar.

    So who's up for a March game, and are we voting on a theme?
    i think @fponticelli proposed "war game" as the theme, and i'd be happy with that
    jvalle
    @jvalle
    war game sounds good to me

    created a super serious channel on slack, since that seems to be where the party is at
    Franco Ponticelli
    @fponticelli
    so are we moving to slack for good?
    Michael Martin-Smucker
    @mlms13
    i'm not against it
    plus, this room doesn't have a flowbot :(

    @fponticelli
    the sadness
    Andy White
    @andywhite37
    the slackness
    I’ll only move to slack if it supports io.js
    Franco Ponticelli
    @fponticelli
    it is only fair
