Of Games and Fame
GasGames offers a unique take on casual games as illustrated by its creativity in game design and aesthetics.
Thanks, Jay, for the article! I'm honored - and feel surprisingly institutionalized :). However, here is a point I'd like to make.
The site homokaasu.org was never intended to be a pure gaming site -
it's a platform for artistic experiments unlimited by boundaries of
good taste or target audiences. We recognize that our audience could be
even bigger than the 400000 monthly visitors if the site was tasteless to no extent. For example, The
Rasterbator has missed some huge publicity due to other content
on the site, but that's a decision we stand behind. (Reminisce your
favourite quote about Picasso, creativity and taste now.) So rather
than "many of the games are worthy of mention, despite the site they
are hosted on", I feel that "many of the games are worthy of mention, because of the site they are hosted on" - in other words: free creativity equals creative outcome.
I just removed the confirmation dialog that used to come up when
changing the game - it was a leftover from a time when the game apps
were displayed at a much smaller size and I had received some
complaints from people who accidentally ended their game. Thanks also for pointing that out.
