A momentary respite from pontification to have a little fun. Splash Back is a cute, free Flash game. I got bored after three gameplay sessions (each of decent length), but that’s OK. I had fun while I was playing, and now I’m familiar with another interesting design mechanic.
Btw, I stumbled upon this via Digg (a democratic linkfarm/blog, for those not familiar with it). As a means of quickly turning up interesting news, Digg hasn’t really worked out for me. I find what I’m looking for (faster) via Slashdot, Next Generation, etc. However, Digg appears to be good for turning up games, interesting videos, etc. And it’s a (somewhat) useful measure of what people find interesting.
