The Bullet Curtain Hits the Cast

This, ‘Speare, sounds so awesome (via Kotaku-website for the actual game seems to be down, alas).

The game is your standard flash shmup [shoot 'em up] in which you have to collect the text of Shakespeare’s plays from enemy ships, periodically scanning items to reveal information about his works, which you will be quizzed on later. You can even pick from different ships with names like Juliet’s Dagger, Baited Bear, Star Crossed, and the Guardian Globe.

They should make a shmup/bullet curtain game based on Cordwainer Smith’s work. How awesome would that be? Which short story would be best with that? For my money, you could do no better [thanks, Ted] than “Game of Rat and Dragon” and a trackball.

    Did you mean “no worse” or “no better”?
