The 9-5 Attention Span: Hummingbird Mind

The cat sections are basically what I imagine Dexter like. Except Dexter is a little bit thicker. More Ollie, the smarter of Jim's cats.

Joe Martin was playing this short visual novel earlier, so I decided to join him. Hummingbird Mind is a game about working from home and distractions. It leans more surreal than the hard-realism – there’s a distinct lack of quick-one-off-the-wrist breaks – but certainly catches the mood of doing work. Or not doing work, as is more often the case. Play here.

    It is perhaps ironic that I am reading this when I am supposed to be preparing from my viva.

  2. Joe Martin says:

    It is even more ironic that I was playing this AT work.

    Don’t tell my bosses!

    This game makes me wish I had a cat and dog to procrastinate efficiently.

    You would think this should feature Facebook (and also RPS) more prominently.

    And here am I thinking your breaks from writing represented the only time spent not wanking.
