Daniel Johnston Might Have Sorta Liked His iPhone Game



Not shockingly, Daniel Johnston isn't much of an iPhone guy (in fact, he doesn't even know what they are). Apparently he recently got a computer, but doesn't really think it's the cat's meow. So it goes. Our dad thinks text messaging is one of the dumbest wastes of times ever. Regardless, Johnston is at the center of a downloadable iPhone game that combines his artwork and music recently developed by two big fans of the man and his work.

The New York Times ran a feature on the game, its makers and Johnston himself this week that went to lengths to illustrate this colliding if two unfmailiar worlds. They refer to the game itself as a sort of "psycho-religious version of Frogger." At the very least, this sounds sort of fascinating. While Johnston doesn't remember much about the game, Johnston's brother was also interviewed, and said Johnston played the game in its developmental stages and "seemed to like it." Sweet.
