This concludes the video portion of the project. We’ve also put together an article deconstructing the game, which discusses what makes the game function as an attention-getting trap, and what another game would have to do to engage the audience in a similar way.

If you’re not familiar with the game, or want a recap, consider watching parts one through three. Otherwise, you could head back to part five or start the analysis over with part four.
