This game is an experiment with using content that belongs to the player to create relevant experiences within the game. Backspace is a simple typing game that uses your MSN chat logs. You feed it a chat log, it reads it and splits it up into levels. Each level you have to type out a set number of messages before time runs out. You score points based on how fast you type each message. High scores are kept for each file.

The point of this game is to use it on your chat logs with someone significant in your life. My objective with this game is to give players a renewed appreciation of how their relationship with someone developed. Hopefully, looking back on your shared history with someone helps you rediscover something about that relationship. Myself, I've already set off quite a few memories - some good, some bad, some just plain messed up - with this game. It's the end of the year, a good time to reflect on your past before looking ahead to the new year.

I hope you find this game interesting, I can't guarantee that you'll have a positive experience with this game, but if you use the right chat log, I'm sure that this game will have an effect on you.

Which would be fine... except that I don't use MSN or indeed any other "chat" system, 'nor do I intended to start using one in the near future, so unless there's another way to play this game, I'm afraid I don't see the point in my downloading it... :?

New version up (same link). This one includes default sample text that you can play with if you don't have MSN chat logs.

Samples:
Wuthering Heights (Catherine and Heathcliff arguing, Don't vex me!)
Selected quotes from Bash.org
Harry Wanger excerpts.

Here's another sample log, though it was actually an IRC conversation. I wish I made that stuff up.

Actually, screw that. I wish to sex the glasses girl.

Okay, updated the game to fix some bugs, also you do not need MSN or MSN logs to play the game now. It comes with some sample texts for you to play with.

Could it be possible to play with any .txt file..?

Or any .txt file formatted in a given way?
