So let’s pull ourselves together and figure out what Curtain Simulator 2013 is all about.
In truth, you don’t so much simulate a pair of curtains, though they are the focus of your interaction. I say that because you simply move your mouse around to control the wind that blows the curtains. With the right music, you could probably have quite the relaxing experience with this, actually. Cloth simulation in games always comes across as highly advanced technology, and the smooth flows and ripples you can create in it is naturally imbued with peace.
But that’s not what Curtain Simulator 2013 is all about. It just potentially could be if you wanted that.
Instead, we’re instructed in the game’s tutorial to move our mouse around vigorously so that the curtains tear! I don’t know what kind of tear you’re thinking in your head, but I think you’ll be surprised as to what these curtains do. There are multiple levels with curtains in various different places, like in front of a toilet, a shower curtain and a butcher’s shop window. Each of these have different reactions to your left mouse button clicks, some of which are surprising and erupted a joy in my heart that I can’t explain.
Call this a toy or a game. It doesn’t really matter, to be honest, but what does matter is that Curtain Simulator 2013 exists, and it is free. There’s a custom level creator on the way at some point too. All I’ve ever wanted to do is create my own curtains and tear them. This is my opportunity to shine!
