Finally! A way to connect the recent “Derrida Debates” to videogames!

Behold Modernauts. It’s inspired by the well-received Nintendo DS puzzle game Scribblenauts, in which the player solved puzzles by typing in the names of objects, which would appear for use in the puzzle. To complete it, the player would have to reach the goal, a star.

Modernauts works similarly, except the one obstacle between the player and the star is Derrida. Or to be more precise, the name “Derrida.”

I’ll leave the rest to you.
