Cow Clicker

The Defenestrator

Recommended Posts

Here's a very interesting article about Ian Bogost. Quick synopsis: Bogost created a game called "Cow Clicker" for Facebook in order to critique social games like Farmville. A lot of people were in on the joke but a lot of other people started playing it seriously. Meanwhile, other games he created weren't getting the attention that Cow Clicker was.

Interesting article... But doesn't the existence of the "Poke" button on Facebook kinda make cow clicking a redundant "joke?"

"What if--just what if--the very act of storytelling is itself redemptive? What if gathering up the scraps and fragments of a disordered life and binding them between the pages of a book in all of their fragmentary disorder is itself a gambit against that disorder?" -- NBooth
