Thinking of Beirut

The Speed of Thinking
Sneakaway Studio. The Speed of Thinking. 2019.

Before Tally Saves the Internet, we launched our first game The Speed of Thinking.  It’s a simple game where you stack shipping containers onto a cargo ship (sort of like Tetris meets Jenga). It’s strangely meditative in the way that endless shopping online can be for some people, but it’s a game that you can never win (the only way to win is to crash the game). It came out of my 3-country Fulbright that traced 19th century mining of potassium nitrate, the main ingredient in fertilizer and gun powder. It seems strange to have done that research given the recent explosion of ammonium nitrate in Beirut.
