A fancy knockoff of Smash TV.

Exciting and confusing for a bit of fun. Has no victory condition; after some time you are guaranteed to die. Worth a look.

A procedurally generated survival game with shitty graphics, which became popular because it was first-to-market and took advantage of nostalgia.

(It would later be "finished" by having a recipe book concept and an "end"; neither of which are any good.)

I loved this game, and even bought it twice to support the developer, but because it was Java it would bring a computer to its knees. Being sold out to Microsoft (for their upcoming virtual reality stuff I'd bet) was bafflingly insulting.
