I may be entirely off base here, but is this perhaps a commentary on (or reference to) a radio with guts by bukowski?
The Trouble With Comparing A Poet With A Radio...
A downloadable game
I'm going to get out in front of this: I think, as a submission to the Libre Baskerville Jam, this game is likely a failure. At least partially, and to a larger degree than I'd hoped. I'm fine with that, I just wanted to acknowledge it from the top. Maybe once it's settled a bit, and I've got a little more perspective on it, I'll write up some kind of postmortem.
This is a two-player story game in which one player is a poet and the other is a radio. They take turns performing their tasks, and eventually the game is over. It has something to do with art, but I'm not prepared to attempt unpacking that at the moment. I am honestly exhausted by this one, so I'm just going to put it in front of you and hope you like it at least a little.

Frankly it's not that noteworthy and this is honestly a much better piece to draw from. My brain is fantastic at inferring patterns that don't really exist and it gets in the way sometimes.
I feel like I understand the intention a lot more clearly now with this context, thank you!
sounds pretty fun, i need to genuinely try before commentin anything else
Spews forth pretentious praise in tortured academicese for this.
