January 10 Meditation (Cullen Dwyer)

The intro to Cullen Dwyer’s game tells a story about a childhood spent regularly sneaking into a best friend’s bed to sleep with him, until one year the best friend snuck into Cullen’s bed and died in the night. I was relieved when the game revealed said best friend to be a dog.

Unfortunately, I was able to get little else from the game, as the little ghost dog was unresponsive, perhaps skidding off to the very edge of the screen at the touch of an arrow key, or refusing to move at all. I suppose it’s possible, as always, that this is an intentional part of the experience, but if so then I don’t know why switching browser tabs and back again seems to fix it, at least for the next button press.
