I’ve been fucking around with the site again. Finally. I’m happy with the new look for now – it’s at least functional.

But that’s not what I’m here to tell you about. I’m here to tell you about Mastermind: World Conqueror.

Here’s what happened: I logged onto Kongregate, expecting to play some GemCraft chapter 0 or something. I saw a new game, it had a dark red icon, so I clicked it.

Three hours later, I sort of came to – I had played the entire thing through… twice.

If my opinion on games wasn’t so deeply informed by the need to seem like I know what the fuck I’m talking about on a professional level, I would claim that this is now my favorite game.

This is now my favorite game.

My ambition is to, someday, make a game in this vein. By which I mean, one that is fucking awesome.

It’s a theme for me: other favorite games include Overlord, Overlord II, and Dungeonkeeper. At least I am consistent in my desire to play games in which I lead my swarms of minions to overrun the human world and bring about a new age of darkness.

It says nothing about me! Stop thinking that! I heard you thinking that! It’s just a game!

Honestly, though, clicking the buttons in the final sequence of this game was one of the most satisfying gaming experiences in recent memory. Mu hu. Wah ha. Ha ha HA HA HAH AHAHA HA HAHAAHAAaaaaaa…..
