The Game of Life

‘Cluckity cluck, cluckity cluck’ rang the footsteps as the two aliens went about their way. “Mommy I’m hungry, I want some water” said one. “Not now child, we need to make it to the next level before we replenish our energy; we are anyways being tracked so let’s hurry,” replied the other.

Suddenly the ground started shaking, a tree fell and trapped the little alien in its fork. The mother went to help but…

Game Over!

The screen read as the kid hit refresh. Very soon you could again hear, ‘Cluckity cluck, cluckity cluck’ “Mommy I’m hungry.”

  8. I bet the background music was really catchy and irritating, like the music for Tetris…You painted the picture very clearly, Bernadette.

    1. Well not that irritating. You can be sure that the kid playing the game would not have restarted it otherwise 😉
