Description

Inspired by Samuel Beckett's 1953 titan of modern drama, this game strives to accurately replicate what reviewer Vivian Mercier described as "a play in which nothing happens, twice." Playing as Vladimir (Didi) and/or Estragon (Gogo), the low-rez avatars push the boundaries of interactivity and redefine what an idle game can achieve whiling away time near a dead tree and watching the progress of a lonesome cloud crossing the sky... at least, while the game window has the main focus. This alleged gameplay is livened up with periodic boss battles and progression to further, more rarefied levels of waiting.

Trivia

Title

The month after this game went viral, its author received a note from the legal department of Les Editions de Minuit:

Dear Sir,

We are aware that your website is using unauthorized the title of Samuel Beckett's play En attendant Godot / Waiting for Godot, for which we happen to manage the rights worldwide.

Please have the kindness to remove this title from your video game and confirm to us it has been done.
The game's author then went through a few rounds of title compromise before arriving at one that was found to be sufficiently compliant as to quash the prospect of legal action. (Fortunately, these lawyers have never caught on to the Godot gag in the game Modernism.)
