A game of Praise regardless of how you play

For my assignment, I played with Nothing You Have Done Deserves Praise. The game involves you going through different levels, where you must move in different directions, or jump up or go down. As you do so, different phrases of praise appear and encouraging you to keep going further with the game. Surrounding the character and the screen was strange lands with all kinds of creatures. The character can jump and always has those things chasing or following it. Jason Nelson is the creator of the game and numerous other games for Electronic Literature. He has been doing works similar to this one since early 2000’s.  Nelson often tries to connect with his readers and encourage them to do their own work and create their own poetry. The game allows the reader to truly think about their movements and the phrases that pop up during it.
