Each of the following items is interactive in some way. It’s up to you to figure out how they work.
Have you figured out how each one works yet? If you’re stuck click here. It’s also a good link to explore if you’re looking for similar games. The man who creates them has a fascinating site!
The mechanics of playing has been on my mind recently. Every child I’ve ever met has been interested in some sort of imaginative or creative play and many of my adult friends continue to experience our world with fresh eyes.
I think the Internet is like an adult version of a playground or park. There are many different activities going on at once and one can usually jump easily from one game to the next. It’s also something that we spend time on because it’s entertaining. Some people earn a living online but this doesn’t seem to be the motivation of most.
If only the Internet could somehow include a real sandbox and swing set, though! Those were my two favourite parts of going to the park as a kid. (And as an adult. 😉 )
Why do we play? It’s fun. Sometimes it helps us express emotions or ideas that are difficult to draw out in more grown-up ways like writing or talking. Everyone has a story to tell.
Why do some people stop playing? I wish I knew.
How would you answer these questions?
