    Every time you kill an alien, you delete a file on your computer.

    When YOU die, the application deletes itself.

    Load of people on Kotaku whining about how it's art and stuff. I just think it's an interesting concept - especially since people are opting to play it.

    Pretty interesting, but I'm not going to play it.

    Sounds like a lot of people need to redefine what they consider art. Art and entertainment are often confused as being synonymous. It's merely an entertaining concept, but it's mostly a stupid program that deletes my crap.

    Also, wasn't this on the Manifesto a month ago? Get with it Kotaku...

    Aye.

    But Kotaku had an interview with the maker.

    He's a talented designer, but he was all 'i fink its thyme we redefine what ppl play games 4' etc.

    That's right: People no longer play games for entertainment, but rather to delete files on the computers at PC World.

    This sounds like the most fun possible on a school computer.
