It was a sunny night on the 20th January 2010. Me and my friend F.L.O. were sitting in front of my computer and got bored. What to do? We needed inspiration: So we drank one bottle of Becherovka and 8 Reissdorf Kölsch in order to get intellectual.
The inspiration plan slash drinking some alcohol was a full success, because suddenly it came to my mind, that I played a nice little game on the so-called Internet some days ago. That was the moment, which I nowadays call the point of no return.
The game was obviously called Canabalt as most people using brain might or might not suggest. After playing for hours and hours we got angrier and angrier, because we totally sucked at the game. Nevertheless as we saw there was an option to save our highscore, we couldn’t resist to share our bad Canabalt skills with the world.
To save the score I was used to register to a totally unknown, but somehow familiar looking website called Kongregate. The layout of this site was so unbelievably perfect … we had to pause for a moment in order to catch this elemental mind-bending momentum standardized. First the registration seemed to be very simple, but than I came to the field, where I had to choose a username.
It was a hard decision as we debated about pros and cons of various stupid names. Therefore we drank two more bottles of Becherovka (which by the way I can totally recommend to everyone) and 14 good ol’ Reissdorf Kölsch, as suddenly it was so clear and evident: IHateCanabalt was born on that sick day (or night? I really don’t remember anything related to the 20th January 2010). IHateCanabalt is still alive and doing fine. Furthermore he still loves a game called Canabalt.
