An amusing dose of pure silliness., April 11, 2010

Two hours isn't much time for coming up with a good story, let alone coding it. Gilles Duchesne demonstrates with this piece created for Speed IF 16 that you can produce something likable in that timeframe... and have a great time while you're at it.

This episode has every indication that it was written hastily and with a devil-may-care attitude about literary or artistic quality. A decided lack of pretense saves the day, though, making it easy to overlook any minor faults and experience the author's glee at lashing together the seed ideas he used from the contest: Marie Antionette, antiques, cheese, monkey heads, and Brandon van Every.

It's a 15-minute experience that I didn't regret, and I look forward to trying other works in the absurdist Captain Speedo series. If the others are like this one, they are a brilliantly-conceived framework well-suited to the handful-of-random-ideas category of SpeedIF.
