Scuttlebuggery is a stylishly steampunk online promotional game for the goth band Johnny Hollow, brought to you by the geniuses at My Pet Skeleton Productions (maker of “A Murder of Scarecrows” featured here awhile back).
In this game you play a scuttlebug — a round beetle who must figure out how to push bubbles of absinthe toward a drain, dodging beetles and fluttering moths along the way. It’s like soccer for scarabs. And though it sounds like child’s play, it is a Sisyphean challenge that will likely make you appreciate the vast labor of the insect world, scuttling all around us when we’re not paying much attention. Happy Halloween!
