I am absolutely getting a group together for this, and we will absolutely do it forever. What a beautiful excuse to add some silliness and comraderie to our lives! And excellent life advice: I will never again speak to trees unless the sky is overcast. Upon reflection, it seems rude to interrupt their meal. I should have realized.
I really love the idea of presenting customs and routines as something close to games. Something happens when we call something a game, an inspection of the thing, a taking stock. We instinctively regard it with new eyes, toward its systemic and social properties (perhaps even seeing systems and sociality where there was none or very little). And then we have the added benefit of adding bits, making the mundane stranger, more surprising, more delightful.
Thank you so much for the game submission! I love it!
Thanks for putting this jam together. It was fun and very different from how I usually write stuff. The jam's description hooked me in. I listened to that lecture while I was at work. And the part about the trees really felt like it came out of nowhere, like I just typed it without thinking of it. From OUTSIDE!
It's working! We're getting spooky in here!
