Have you played Lose/Lose?


As the author describes “Lose/Lose is a video-game with real life consequences.”

This game works only in Mac, and as the warning explains, this game deletes files whenever the player kill those aliens. Yes, it is interesting but unfortunately it poses serious threat to users.

So, if you’ll happen to see this screen, I advise you to immediately quit the application (Command + Q) before it’s too late!

    Hmmm, a grammar check would be in order for this game. I think he (she?) meant to say: “playing loose” as in “playing fast and loose”. Loose != lose (even though the spellchecker accepts them both :-)).

      @Cd-MaN: Actually the artist did choose the correct word. It is “Lose” as in “losing the game.” It refers to the fact that there is really no winning in this game. So not “Win/Lose” but rather “Lose/Lose”. So you either kill the enemies, and lose precious files, thus you losing in real life, or you don’t kill and quit, and thus you lose the game.

      (i know it’s more than a year old, but couldn’t help myself when I read that comment.)
