Why did the watermelon cross the road? Because it was the protagonist in a linear video game trying to escape, of course.
Officially titled, The Story of the Revolutionary Watermelon That Wanted to Live Free as a Bird and Learned How to Escape, this online game sees our brave watermelon rolling and hopping across roads and creepy forests. What is the watermelon escaping from? An evil summer picnic? Is Gallagher in town? We shall never know.
Nevertheless, the watermelon is controlled by tapping the space bar. That is unless you’d prefer to use an actual watermelon controller, which can be done with an Arduino custom circuit and code, and requires you to slap the real watermelon to control your digital one.
