A Slow Year: Game Poems

Description (in English): 

A collection of four one kilobyte games for the Atari Video Computer System, one for each season, about the experience of observing things. Neither action nor strategy, each game requires a different kind of sedate observation and methodical input. Accompanying the game are essays about the commonalities between videogames and poetry and 1,024 machined haiku—poetry generated by computer—8 bits worth for each season.
