“The website will self-destruct if you don’t engage with it. It’s been a rough month for me, and I’m sure it has for a lot of people. So I figured, lets create a nice cozy place online where you can write about the issues you’re having. Please feel free to read some of the messages that have been left so far, and send one yourself.”
As we all know, the internet can be a horrible, but also a wonderful place. “This Website Will Self-destruct (dot) com” is a great example for that: Here you can express yourself freely and anonymously by leaving a message about anything that is on your mind. It does not work like an online forum where you can answer to a thread directly, instead you should think of it more as a public pinboard – with the tiny difference that this board will vanish when it does not get any new input in the timespan of a day.
The project was born as a submission to the Ludum Dare 46, where it fits the theme “Keep it alive” in a perfect way, but it should also be perceived as a result of the actual coronavirus outbreak situation. Tens of thousands of people already left a message on the website, sharing something with the whole world: Little secrets, thoughts, depressing descriptions of their actual state of mind, but also positive vibes.
Yeah, I know, I know… Of course some idiots already shared their hatred and petty-minded verbal diarrhea there too, but that is more of a general problem with internet communities and not so much with this project. So better give “This Website Will Self-destruct (dot) com” a visit and fill it with new, more wholesome comment, okay? That would be wonderful. >>PLAY
