Cursor*10, a game of self-collaboration


One of the great things about studying Games Design is that you get to try some cool little game ideas and analyze them for class.

This one here is one of those small games that really caught my attention. It’s a really short game (you can beat it in under 5 minutes), but it requires a couple of tries until you get the hang of it. It’s called Cursor*10.

The basic premise is that you have to reach the 16th floor by moving your mouse cursor and clicking through the stairs. BUT, and here is the great thing about this game, you have 10 lives (10 cursors, hence the name of the game) each with a lifespan of under a minute. You will need to co-operate with yourself in order to win the game.

And how do you do that? Well, you are going to have to try it out for yourself if you want to find out, so head over to this website and try it out. I highly recommend it!
