Wolfenstein 1-D

Wolfenstein, converted into a one-pixel line. In 1992, Wolfenstein 3-D revolutionized video games and created the 3D first-person shooter genre. Now, after decades of development, Wolfenstein 3-D has been converted to breathtaking, epoch-making 1-D. You can now play the game in a single, dazzling one-pixel line.

  1. Double.

    I’m not complaining, mind you. But this is a great opportunity to talk about how cross-posting between gamefilter and the mothership should work. Thoughts?

  2. Oh eh, didn’t even see it over there.

  3. No worries – I’ll admit that the identical wording made me think (incorrectly) it was a crosspost.

    Although, now that I think about it I should have taken this over to gametheory. So I did. Sorry for the derail!

  4. I’m more disappointed than I should be that “I M L” doesn’t work.

  5. Heh, kinda makes me want to install the real thing.

  6. Now I want to kill teeny-tiny 1 pixel Nazis

  7. You know what? That is freaking brilliant, in a weird way. I’ve been re-reading (for the 5th or 6th time) Godel, Escher and Bach again, and listening to some lecture serieseses on consciousness and theories of cognition and all that, because that’s the thing I am interested in this winter, and this kind of experience-through-a-deliberately-limited-prism ties right in with that and gives me IDEAS.

    Puts me in some ways in mind of experiments where they made people wear inverting lenses for an extended period of time. The subjects would be disoriented for a while, completely, then they’d develop some skills to operate in the inverted world, then, at some point, they’d just start seeing it (or, more properly, perceiving it, maybe) as totally normal, and be able to go on normally. Remove the lenses, and they’d have to go through the same thing in reverse.

    The brain is cool.

  8. Oh man, if only that worked for booze. After drinking for a week, you start to operate normally while drunk. Then you stop drinking, and voila, free drunkenness without the hangover!
