Ian Bogost has been reading a lot of Imagist poetry (Pound, Williams), and was thinking about things to do slowly/instantanously.
Also, he had been teaching people how to make games on the original Atari Console (that’s a 2600 to you youthy lot). He was struck by the parallels between making 1k games and Haiku.
So, his 4-game cart about the seasons.
In the winter one, you sit at a table and drink coffee.
