From the Hallway
you heard loud clucking noises coming from this room. Now you know why. The room is full of people telling
chicken jokes, and some of the more imbalanced participants are even doing chicken impressions. Adam Cadre
is busy hanging a poster on one wall. With morbid curiosity, you wander over and read it:
"This is a call for tiny games by anyone who would like to contribute. The theme of the game should be:
A CHICKEN CROSSING A ROAD.
Do anything you like with this theme. A first-person "you are the chicken" approach is fine; a game set in a cafe where a pretentious grad student compares road-crossing chickens to the plight of the proletariat in post-Marxist society is also fine. All I ask is that the chicken crossing the road should be readily apparent (please, no games about something entirely unrelated except for the fact that >XYZZY produces the response, "A hollow voice says, 'Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side!'") and that the game be short. If you spend more than an afternoon or two on it, you're missing the point."
