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.
