K is for Katamari Damacy

(Insert catchy opening about Katamari Damacy being more than a video game sold in a box, but an experience grasped with all thirteen senses.  Note to self: Be careful to avoid dramatization and pretense.  You do that too much.)

(Insert video, test for completion, and report back to self.)

TEST ENGAGE

TEST TERMINATE

(Result:  Success on most counts.  Faulted for not showing gameplay.)

(Insert comment on the video’s aural wonders.  Insert clever juxtaposition on the psychedelic nature of the music and the images of rainbows, humorously posed animals, and the revealing shot of mushrooms with hallucinogenic properties.)

(Insert gameplay video, test for completion and report back to self. )

TEST ENGAGE

TEST TERMINATE

(Result:  Success.  Follow up with video on final stage.)

(Insert comment on the growing nature of the katamari and how it’s ultimately about human arrogance and its inherent utility in any capitalistic system.  Insert witty foreshadowing of the next video’s comments being an interactive demonstration of the capitalistic trajectory’s expected end.)

(Insert gameplay video, test for completion, and report back to self. )

TEST ENGAGE

TEST TERMINATE

(Result:  Success on one out of three counts.  Follow up with part 2 video on final stage.)

(Insert disclaimer that commentator’s voice sounds nothing like personal voice.  Insert recommendation for music (search memory archive, engage [Donovan] and engage [The Raspberries] suggestion application) in place of commentator voice.  Note to self:  What does my voice sound like?  Make sure and ponder this with your bubble pipe and footy pajamas.)

(Insert gameplay video, test for completion, and report back to self. )

TEST ENGAGE

TEST TERMINATE

(Result:  Success on two out of three counts.  Follow up with part 3 video on final stage.)

(Insert comment that rouses curiosity of the audience and encourages the audience to play Katamari Damacy.)

(Insert gameplay video, test for completion, and report back to self. )

TEST ENGAGE


TEST TERMINATE

(Result:  Success on all counts.  Pat self on back.  Go eat dinner. )

  1. Katamari is a game I enjoy but not one I played long enough to pick up any of the subtext (I always played it at a friends or at a party).
