The Daily HaiTaku

Welcome to HaiTaku — I write a Haiku about a game and you try and guess which game it is! Simple!

Yesterday was the very first HaiTaku and I was impressed. With myself. Yes, someone guessed the game correctly — well done to Stevorooni — but there were multiple different guess, which makes me think that HaiTaku might be a tougher nut to crack for everyone!


Anyway: next HaiTaku!

He was just a kid In a strange, brave new world Then he was built in

Oh man, this is so much fun! This is way better than ScribbleTaku.

This is HaiTaku. We write Haikus about old video games and leave it you to guess what game we're talking about. If you want to submit a Haiku feel free. Sent it here!


    The ultimate fate for any Sims.

      Real answer - Edit: Too late, withdrawing to avoid confusion on which is first.
      @drcurlytek got this.

    Edit: What I meant to say was Fallout.

    I had a triple shot brew this morning. I'm still getting over the shakes. :/

      was the protagonist "built in" at some point during the start of the game?

      EDIT: Wait he was put in a coffin wasn't he! Technically, that's "built in"

        He was... enclosed? Contained?
        I don't know if that qualifies or not, but he was definitely a boy in a strange world.

        Wasn't alex the kid built into the the master system so you didnt need a cartridge?

    I'm thinking of those units that get trapped in a corner while building in RTSs, or spawn in the tiny gap between structures.

    This day was so nice until
    @Shane said, "It's The Dig"

      Wonder how long you can keep up the Daily dig Haiku's...

        If I should repeat
        Myself every now and then
        No one will notice

        It's the perfect plan
        Monty Burns hands: "Excellent"
        A foolproof scheme, this.

          one day it will fail
          five then seven then five
          fuck it, its the dig!

    Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past

    I really want to get this
    My guess is Minecraft

    its quite hard to say,
    is it fallout? alex kid?
    it is Bastion.
