Playing Games With The Nation’s Future

Back, baying hordes! The EDR List of Stuff is upcoming. I mean it this time, I’m drafting it as I type.*

While you wait, why not play a little web thingy? This is the product, wouldyabelieveit, of the UK Parliament website. It is called “MP for a Week”, and allows you to spend a week desperately trying to avoid blame as you backstab your leader, or struggling not to sabotage your party’s likely election victory by billing Parliament for your Swedish sex workers. I kid, natch. Oh what a merry japester I am.

Anyway, it’s a mildly interesting distraction from the toil and grind, even if it is a little simple. Reminds me most of Kudos, strangely. Playing a life based on answers to questions, I mean, not a desperate sense of crushing failure (although I’m sure in a more accurate simulation, that would play a far larger role.

*Not literally, but the document is open next to Spotify. So you can just chill, I’ve handled everything myself.
