Something under the Bed

It's become a personal tradition that I try to post something fun around this time each year, perhaps in the form of a small game that I've written. This year's entry isn't particularly seasonal, but it's still worth posting. It's Something under the bed, a game I've written while working at Builtvisible.

If you're interested in how it works, read on. Otherwise just see how far through the night you can get. It's deliberately difficult.

Remixes I've enjoyed

That Cameron fella

I've been meaning to post this for a while. After the Brexit vote, David Cameron hummed a little tune as he walked away from a speech, which a creative person turned into an amusing bit of dance music. I ended up playing it on loop for several hours before it finally drove me to distraction, but it reminded me of some other, similar pieces of work I have also enjoyed.

Warning: ear worm alert.

Getting lost with Google Maps

Somewhere in the world, yesterday

Continuing my intermittent series of 'possibly interesting things I saw on Google Maps', here's a question - what's the limit of the 'directions' feature?

For example, can you get driving directions from any place in the world to any other place in the world, as long as both places are on the same land mass? Spoiler: no.
