A long time ago when I was but a young lad I thought I was was the only one that played “Don’t Touch the Lava.” I thought “I must be one
awesome weird kid.” Years later with the invention of the internet, it turns out I was wrong (on the former). Now there’s Facebook groups, internet memes, t-shirts, and YouTube videos all dedicated to this childhood game. There’s even a god damn Wikipedia page for it. I always thought it was fun to figure out how to get out of each room in your house with The Floor is Lava. Some rooms like your own bedroom were pretty easy, but then you’d get rooms like your nearly barren basement which were hard as shit. Better stock up on couch cushions in your inventory from the previous level!
This was one of the best games to play as a kid because all it required was pure agility, imagination and spatial reasoning (and preferably a lot of furniture). That’s it. There’s no fuckin’ around with The Floor is Lava.
