New experimental app from Zach Gage comes in the form of space invaders shooter with an edge to gameplay. Toying with the idea of “consequence”, everything that happens while you play is real. Each alien is procedurally generated out of a file on your computer. When you kill an alien, the file it was created from is destroyed. On the other hand, if you are killed, the application itself will be destroyed.
I, unfortunately, haven’t brought myself to have a go regardless of how good it looks. There are only two people on the online scoreboard which to me suggests that those that have played might have lost important system files to upload their score in the first place =]. This also raises the question of how lucky Zach was to create the game as most deployment test runs would have slowly deleted all of his files. I will nevertheless have a go eventually, as long as I confirm with Zach first how safe this actually is =]. Zach, Skype?
