Carefully place a dozen arcade classics in a large mixing bowl. Add a dash of awesomesauce, cover the bowl, and allow the ingredients to ferment over three weeks. Uncover in a well ventilated area, then mash until loud and glitchy. Serve over the internet.

This game was made over three weeks for the TIGSource VGNG competition.

An interesting concept but it does not really work all that well in practice. Some of the characters you can become has such limited mobility and attack that you regularly encounter situations where there is nothing you can do you. Add to this the scene changing so ridiculously quickly that the game is not really something you are going to enjoy playing.
