No school like the old school
Every summer, Blizzard Entertainment holds a convention for fans of its games in Anaheim, California, known as BlizzCon (see what they did there?). The tickets have a habit of selling like hotcakes, so much so that they are being made available in “waves” to prevent the whole lot from disappearing in one fell swoop. Those attempting to purchase tickets during these waves have been given the chance to play a decidedly crude but incredibly addictive web browser game entitled Failoc-alypse, in which your goal is to take command of one of three characters from Blizzard’s gaming universes and preventing as many imps as possible from getting to BlizzCon.
Those who aren’t attempting to purchase tickets can play the game too by following this link. It’s certainly an enjoyable stress reliever and one that succeeds in evoking much of the feel of the sort of games Blizzard used to make for console in the early 1990s.
