I (Barely) See What You Did There: This Is A Tab

By Nathan Grayson on May 18th, 2012.

The actual game looks nothing like this. Hooray!
Clever things can be acknowledged in a myriad of ways. A knowing nod. A brief chuckle. A loud groan followed by social ostracization and self-loathing if it’s so-bad-it’s-good-no-wait-it’s-still-bad pun. This Is A Tab transcends all of these things. Designed as part of Ludum Dare 23 – whose theme was “tiny world” – it’s, er, a pretty literal interpretation of the theme. It’s also incredibly brief, but so, so worth the time. Admittedly, this thing’s a bit of a one-trick pony, so saying much more would ruin the surprise. But gosh, you still get a figurative pony. I’ve been asking for one of those for years, and all I’ve gotten are figurative sweaters and socks.
