More > works of digital poetry on the planet. This book contains most of the hundreds of texts that the game can display after the player completes a level or is killed by marauding texts. These texts address the player and explore the relations between poetry, games, and play. The book also contains some of the texts that can appear during game-play, and new and old writings by Andrews about Arteroids. “The presentation of poetry in Arteroids is certainly unlike anything a print-based author could achieve.
