But one new game brings home the terrible havoc you're wreaking on those poor aliens in a rather direct way.Lose/Lose is a game with a somewhat worrying gimmick - every alien spaceship is based on a file on your computer's hard drive. When you kill the alien, you get a point - but the file it's based on is deleted. Not only that, but you don’t know which files have been zapped - you only see a file extension to give you any idea of whether it was uselessblurryphoto.jpg or incrediblyimportantspreadsheet.xls.The idea, according to its maker Zach Gage, is to explore 'what it means to kill in a video-game'.We're not sure we'd recommend playing the game, however - not only will you probably regret your loss of files, but we can't guarantee how good the gameplay is. We tried playing it on our work computer, but then xnjknxj flalggng kwsxx#xyy b}h@$||________EDIT : The link is just to the article and a short video of the game so don't worry about clicking on that BTW.There's some other great videos on there too.
