Why Try It: Striking neon visuals; captures a sense of distraction and sensation without being overwhelming.
Time: Five minutes.
How to Play: Use the arrow keys — each key press triggers something in each of the several games that are running simultaneously.
Author’s Notes: "I want to explore the feeling of being distracted by too many things going on at once and having to focus on one thing at the cost of other things. I’m also interested in the aesthetics of the composite image. I’d like for static screenshots to look like psychedelic abstract art and for the individual games to not be discernible to someone who hasn’t played it."
