Candy Box created by French indie developer Aniwey is the next big "waste of time" since Facebook game parody Cow Clicker, This ASCII art browser game at first seems like nothing, I mean all you have to do is either eat candies or throw them to the ground but we are a strange bunch us internet users, We get curious over the smallest things so we eat the candies,statistics Aniwey openly shares about the game, These statistics are updated everyday however I am taking them from the Last update at : (2013-05-05 01:04:36) which shows 343088 saves had been made, The statistics also show the favourite weapon amongst users as well as how many "saves" have killed certain beings and interestingly (maybe) How many "saves" which have finished the game (currently 6829). Aniwey is looking to build a sequel and is looking to have his very own ASCII artist for the game as right now the art shown is either taken or derived from elsewhere. The sequel will include some suggestions sent from users like an autosave feature, offline/Smarphone versions, easter eggs and of course squirrels.
On a random note I am off to Germany on Friday with this week being my hand in for two university modules (Short Film and Studio Production) We recorded our show for studio production on Thursday, It was a very long day but also very fruitful. Alas now is time for the dreaded paperwork and essays and having my nose in many books before my broadcast drama exam. After many close calls this year I finally got an A and it was for a group presentation, Still happy about it!
It's Eurovision very soon and Bonnie Tyler is flying our flag....bring on the Nill poi for Bonnie.
