Die Bard: Haiku Hero

I'm sure that everyone will agree, what we were hoping the man behind the blistering Boss Rush would do next would be a game about making haikus. Our hopes are answered. Haiku Hero basically challenges you to make haikus (Three-line poems in a 5, 7, 5 sylables structure - English Teacher Ed) against a time limit. To make it trickier, as you turn up the difficulty level, it sets limits - like having it rhyme, include set words or only have words with a certain number of syllables. Here's Chris Cornell's designers notes. "Since it has already lead to one of my playtesters filling my inbox with Cthulhu-themed haikus for a week, I consider it a win," he informs me, "I've decided that this subgenre should be officially called "Haiku-hlus". Inform the authorities!" Consider the authorities informed. Go get poetositing, gaming sorts!
