Candy Box: try this strange little ASCII browser game

Thursday, 2nd May 2013 04:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Just a little blip if you’re feeling at a loss for entertainment this afternoon: Candy Box is a strange and delightful little browser game doing the rounds on Twitter today. Evoking a feeling very similar to social game mechanics but with none of the advertising, friend nagging or general slimy feeling, it lets you save your game with a code word and rewards patient exploration. Try not to spoil it for everyone else.

    Couldn’t see the point, until I got THAT item. Now it’s opening up and I like it.
    Will keep it running in the background while I work
