DESPITE having the most infuriating name in the history of gaming, #YOLOSWAG is fun enough to be worth a download.

Imagine a classic shoot-'em-up like Asteroids where the bad guys are spawned based on people's tweets.

Then tell your boss you're 'researching market sentiment'.

The game isn't pretty, and it did crash on me once, but fortunately the creator is easily reachable via Reddit and their site. One player made a comment about a bug on the game's Reddit post and the creator replied with a bug fix within minutes.

Thus is the glory of indie games.
