How not to write. No.1

Try to beat my high score of 5000m on this.

The copy and the music really do a lot. Anyone know what this is written in/on?

UPDATE: That really is the flash game equivalent of meth amphetamine. It's beautifully designed.
  • It's an escape game, but you can never escape.
  • To play again, you just hit the jump button - so you have no time for your ego to kick in and stop you, you're just suddenly playing again.
  • There's only one button.
  • The music is excellent.
  • The sound effects are excellent.
  • It's really exciting, but it looks like you could run it on a BBC Model B.
  • There's no explanation, it's just laden with stuff that is suggestive of a story.
Can I nominate it for a D&AD pencil? Or something. Can we nominate the bloke that made it to be president this year? Or is that all over already?

I'll be honest, it was 4474. And it felt like I had reached a state of transcendence.

Sadly that's a good 3000m less than my score.

I gave them three dollars I liked it so much.

Hello! Sorry it's taken me so long (I've been away) but I have beaten your score - 10,397m, which I believe makes me both a winner and a loser. It really is a wonderful thing though.
