Light wild branches is a zero-player online game, that selects, combines and redraws cultural material in a fashion similar an end-to-end lighting circuit or a person attempting to walk in an exactly straight line to their friend’s house, but consistently banging into a wall.
Every time the site is loaded, the game makes a move by trying to interpret its previous move and the material it presented. It relies on both continual visitors and the continual creation of cultural material for it to select and use.
It’s not always a very interesting spectator experience. The rules of the game and the character of the moves are not presented. (Maybe they’re behind the wall?)
