Rochester, NY – As the Strong Museum prepares to announce the inductees into the World Video Game Hall of Fame, an anonymous source reveals that a fan favorite will be among them.
Finally, Hoping the DVD Icon Will Hit the Corner of the Screen will take what many say is its rightful place among other acclaimed titles.
“That game is really stunning in its simplicity, but also in the compelling storyline of the protagonist. You really root for the little guy,” says RIT Game Design professor Les Newberry.
The game is also praised for its multiplayer appeal. I love Hoping the DVD Icon Will Hit the Corner of the Screen, because the whole family can play it together,” says local father John Donovan, “It’s the only game I know of that doesn’t have my boys fighting for turns.
The game is also notoriously difficult. Fans play it for hours, and despite many near wins, never reach the end. “I heard Mrs. Bryce-Kelly’s 3rd Period English class won back in 2004,” Olympia High School Alumni Naomi De La Cruz reported. “They’re so lucky.”
Though fans have hoped for an updated version, there doesn’t appear to be a Hoping the DVD Icon Will Hit the Corner of the Screen 2 coming out any time soon. In the meantime, fans can replay the original version and other favorites like Following the Loading Wheel with Your Cursor.
