Well, if you came here April 1st, 2010, you witnessed something that I would probably consider a colossal failure. Instead of my usual run-of-the-mill April Fools' joke I went with something slightly more ambitious.
Instead some people saw it and nobody really got very far, and zero people completed it. This is mainly because I failed to communicate exactly what was going on, or provide any real context for the game. In memory of this wondrous event, and as a way of adding more content to the ol' Five Years o' Mantis Eyes, I wrote a postmortem of the whole ordeal. Some of it may be boring (there are charts), but if you don't really care much about that, there's also juicy blasts from the past in the form of my less ambitious but better executed April Fools' jokes. It's like a history lesson! Enjoy!
