Funny Never Sleeps: American Dream

American Dream is a collaborative browser game from Increpare, VVVVVV's Terry Cavanagh, Jasper Byrne and Tom Morgan-Jones that's made me laugh more than enough to warrant a post. It's a bit like Oliver Stone's Wall Street directed by a wet pocket calculator. Set in the 80s, it tasks you with fulfilling the American dream by making a million dollars, though according to Terry it started its life as a game called Killing Spree about "an assassin who spent all his money on designer furniture". Go play! It's exactly the kind of oddball thing that I play then can't help but wonder how it would have turned out with an actual budget.
