Indie developer Aran Koning has released #YOLOSWAG, a free arena-based shoot-'em-up for Windows that generates enemies based on Twitter hashtags.

The gameplay is simplistic and there's little in the way of polish or depth, but the game's real hook is that it displays the (likely cringe-worthy) tweet that killed you after your game ends. Entering stuff like #YOLO or #SWAG will cause swarms of deadly tweets to descend upon you, but if you want an easier experience, you might want to try less popular hashtags like, say, #battletoads, or #segacd32x, or maybe #virtualboyrules.
