Have you played Canabalt yet? It's a free and fun auto-run platformer, and it's surely worth a second or two of your time, if not just to see how compelling one-button gaming can be.
Just like Meat Boy was the foundation of what has gone on to be one of the year's most beloved games, I think that Canabalt has similar potential to evolve into something really show stopping. Hopefully this new Winnitron 1000 exclusive 2-player version of the game is the start of that evolution.
Sadly, most people will never be able to play this upgraded version of the game, as the Winnitron 1000 is a one-of-a-kind arcade cabinet located in Winnipeg. Seems like kind of a waste to make a new version of a game that next to no-one will ever get to play, but I guess that's the kind of thing that artists often do. Maybe they'll come to their senses and give Canabalt: 2 Player an official release sometime down the line.
