Arcen released AVWW, a procedurally generated open-world adventure, in 2012, to a largely disappointing reception. Acknowledging player feedback, they put it through major revisions throughout the following months.

Given this, you might argue Darius is the playground bully, literally swallowing and shitting out the little guys. But in Wattam it’s adorable being a poop! Characters giggle even as they’re chased and eaten, and afterwards their swirly fecal form is modelled after the emoji variant.
