The other day I was lamenting the fact that my rage at reading comments, articles, and the internet generally did not manifest itself into a physical cloud that could consume the earth. Jeremy Griffith asked if this was going to be my next game.
Brian Taylor did the music.
The game is a rage simulator. You press the Z key in order to make the cloud grow. It covers everything.
At risk of interpreting myself, the “point” of the game is to show how these small, sexist comments are absolutely rage inducing for me. It is a purely personal game in that sense.
Another “point” of the game is to make the process physically exhausting, overlong, torturous. That’s what it is like reading these comments all the time–exhausting and draining. I can’t imagine what it is like being on the receiving end of them constantly–I respect anyone who has the bravery and fortitude to put up with it and steel themselves to make it through the dudebros of popular video game website comments.
Remember that March is Women’s History Month. You should probably use this month to think about what you are doing in order to not be a shitty person toward women. It isn’t something passive; it requires active thinking and actions to match.
So spend this month being a better person.
In any case, My Rage is a Cloud that will Cover the Earth.

The girl gamer comments cracked me up and I laughed until the end, which came too soon.
Now, I feel like kickboxing.
