Substance Labs‘ Jacob Skjerning has created a scarily accurate parody of the gaming mindset in Progress Wars, a single-serve game site that consists entirely of clicking on a button and building up your status bar. You know, to level up.
A few of its taglines: “Personalized missions – just for you.” “The ultimate game of being better than all your friends at filling progress bars.” “Tired of leveling up your mafia and building your farm? Get right to the heart of the matter with Progress Wars!”
If they ever make a sequel that involves pushing a button to level up stats — say, STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, and CHA — we guarantee every gamer we know will be obsessed.
