This kinda felt like a thesis or an intro to an essay rather than a game. But you did make a valid point- those who define insanity in that way may also view perseverance in such a way, though in a positive light. I don't like how you force me to "give up" though :(. Ah well, this still was an experience worth having.
(I see on your Twitter that you're a law student. Is that why you chose to write this?)
(btw, I'm also in this jam! My game is HCF. Check it out?)
