BEING-IN-THE-GAME

This is a small python-coded game I made in an attempt to simulate Heideggerian “thrownness” in a virtual setting, with the player acting as Dasein. I know, right?

 

Clicking the picture leads to my redundant and inelegant code on the CodeSkulptor platform. To play the game, click the green skeuomorphic triangle symbol at the top left.
