Whitney Museum Debuts Incomprehensible 8-Bit Video Game

Whitney Musems Clickistan

Two's a trend, video game art is having a moment: First MoMA PS1 announces plans to display Feng Mengbo's epic video game Long March: Restart, and then last week the Whitney launches Clickistan, an online video game and half-satiric, half-serious micro-donation system designed by Ubermorgen.com.

The first three levels are a breeze, but level four (pictured) just goes on forever, and after level five players are prompted to make a $1 donation before continuing to the next level. Thanks but no thanks, I'll take Flywrench over Clickistan any day. (Although, I should mention that the retro game music, provided by micromusic.net, is superb.)
