And all manner of things shall be game

Back when we were having our discussion about the problems and potentials of videogames, we focused mainly on narrative games while always reminding each other that some of the most artistic titles — Katamari, Rez, maybe even Guitar Hero — are really just psychedelic freak outs.

Jason Nelson's web game, game, game, game and again game is a delightful low-fi approach to that niche. He describes it as "a digital poem/game/net artwork hybrid of sorts" about "our many failed/error filled/compelling belief systems, from consumerism to monotheism." I know how that sounds, but it's actually pretty adorable as well as arty.

I mean, it's no Google Street Racing, but it has its charms.
