I've played numerous strange and twisted games in my time, but p0nd must surely rank up there with the weirdest I've seen. It's a one-button game, utilizing the space bar to make the protagonist breathe in and out.
Holding space will cause all the fresh air to enter his lungs - then you let go to make him breathe out. It's meant to be a very 'zen' experience, relaxing your nerves etc. In fact, it suggests you try breathing in and out with the character.
Then you get to a pond, and well, it all gets a bit silly. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but rest assured, you won't be expecting what happens next. Play it over at Peanut Gallery Games.
