A Walk In The Woods: Way To Go

What... who's that, and what are they doing?

I don’t want to tell you much about what Way to Go [official site] is, how it works, what happens, or what to do in it. Click this link and go for a pleasant walk in the woods. Or whatever it is. You know, do whatever. It’ll run in your browser and is HTML 5 with various trickery so it’ll work on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is something quiet and delightful and that’s exactly what Monday afternoon calls for. It supports Oculus Rift too, if you’ve got it.

Its makers call it “an interactive experience for human beings between 5 and 105 years old,” which sounds about right, though I reckon younger folks would appreciate it. “Maybe it lasts six minutes; maybe it lasts forever”, they add, and yep, that sounds good.

It’s nice. It has trees. Look, just go see for yourself. You don’t need muggins here tossing off some toss about walking and running and woods and stopping and investigating and appreciating. If you’re not curious enough to look at unknown things, you probably wouldn’t enjoy it anyway.

This trailer is only for the benefit of miserable gits who won’t play it but would like to grumble along. Don’t watch it. Just go play, okay? Okay.

    I was just getting ready to post “well that was completely pointless” but the I got to fly for a bit and that was quite fun.

    This reminds me that I am way overdue for a nice long walk in the woods.

    This gives me a profound nostalgia for walking in the woods in Massachusetts.

    I found that trying to look around with the mouse after making the block head fly makes the surroundings shake really horribly and made my head hurt. I didn’t like that. I’ve never had anything like motion sickness playing a game before. Is that what it’s like?

    This just begs for “Whose woods these are I think I know….” comment, eh?
