Creating a dead-simple browser game, I garnered headlines during the presidential elections and coined a new phrase in the process.
During the 2010 presidential election, while working in the gaming industry, I experienced a moment of boredom one evening. To amuse my friends, I swiftly created a simple "pull the rope" game, where the two remaining contenders competed to pull the third, who didn't advance to the second round. I casually posted it on Facebook and moved on. The next morning, my server was overloaded. The game had attracted over a thousand unique users and garnered attention from national media outlets.
The term "Przeciągnij Grzesia," translating to "Pull the Greg," became a prevalent phrase used by numerous commentators and journalists throughout the election.
