A couple of games by a mysterious programmer named Coda, made one by a friend. Along with the narrator, we travel through the next levels – each different from the previous. On the way we learn about his relationship with Coda and his games. Through this short gameplay we receive a rich image of their relation: its peaks, downfalls, beginning and end. It’s a story meant to be interpreted, and it asks a tough question: can users themselves give games meaning, or does it indicate their weakness? At what point does fascination become dangerous? In this atypical narrative form, Wreden tries to present his own answers.
