Terminal 00
« on: May 05, 2017, 03:50:10 am »
I don't actually know whether to classify this as a "game" or more of an art piece.  Either way, a friend of mine stumbled across it, and I thought it might appeal to the denizens here ...

http://angusnicneven.com/ is a very strange website which represents a "terminal."  I'm not sure whether the terminal is one AI, or more of an AI city existing in cyberspace, but either way it seems to contain multiple distinct characters or personalities.  And it's going insane ... due to steady takeover by a nasty virus known as CoS.

The environments portrayed by the site are otherworldly, clearly not designed for interaction with humans, and might give you a headache.  That of course is part of the fascination.  I'd describe my own trip through the site as melancholy but inspiring.

It might be a game because there are puzzles, of a sort -- binary strings you can decode, tricky webpages in which it's not obvious what you should click on to advance, stuff like that.

It's unclear what the purpose of the site is or whether there is any resolution planned for its storyline, but I know that the creator is still making updates.

I missed this. I really don't know what to make of this  :o

I found a few things to click on but no puzzles or anything. You could say I found it confusing.  :-\

Oh man I got really deep in that website. I found like 80 pages.

Here's some screencaptures:

At one point it was telling me to f off.
