Mindwheel

When Robert Pinsky wrote a video game (hat tip to Mr. Tarantino).

The resulting product—which, thanks to Hales, you can now play online, for free—is a playful mishmash of sci-fi tropes, Pop surrealism, and allusions both high and low: the work of a poet having fun, but still the work of a poet. After all, Pinsky pointed out to me, “allusion” and “ludicrous” both come from the Latin ludere, meaning “to play.”

The play's the thing: Mindwheel: An Electronic Novel.
