Welfare State

By Randy O'Connor

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Try not to go broke.

A stressful clicker laid over a contemplative poetry generator.

Make money, live life, breathe.

A thought experiment, with Game Center leaderboards, and sounds, and words.

Unexpected enjoyed this!

This is different. I like it. Definitely less of a game and more of an experience, heavier on the poetry than the clicker. And be warned, you WILL run out of money, and quickly. But then you get to read your lovely new poetry, and sometimes it almost makes sense.

Don't take time to read the lines as they appear. Just click click click on the good money choices. You'll eventually get familiar with the patterns of where they appear and how they look in your peripheral vision, so you can madly click without looking, thus "writing" longer poems before going broke.

(Game has profanity. Doesn't bother me. But it might be a nice feature to let users toggle it off, just so they can share their best poems on social media without worrying about conservative Aunt Brenda having a stroke...)
