We do not recommend playing the entire screen of one game while under the influence of any psychotropic substances. Hell, even being wired on caffeine might be a problem.

The annual game design competition Ludum Dare can be counted on to produce weird and wonderful video games. The theme for this year’s Ludum Dare was “Entire Game on One Screen.” Tom Murphy VII, who holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University created a game he calls the entire screen of one game, which is kind of like what you get when two mirrors face one another.

The game only works in the Chrome browser. Be forewarned: the entire screen of one game cannot be won, and goes on and on forever.

There are two categories in Ludum Dare competitions. The Jam allows programmers 72 hours to work as a team, and the Compo requires a solo effort with a 48 hour deadline. the entire screen of one game was entered into the Compo category at the event last weekend.
