Operation: Desert Storm maps *LINK*

On January 16, 1991, I was sitting on the couch in front of the TV, with a plate of delicious delicious ice cream cake from Baskin-Robbins. A few bites in, the show was interrupted to bring us news that the United States had started its invasion of Iraq to liberate Kuwait. A drop of mint chocolate chip fell from my fork, as I paused to reflect on growing up in a world where people will send other people out to kill each other with guns. Happy birthday to me.

To Alex Seropian, the event struck a chord too, but in a different way. I like to think his exceedingly difficult game, where you can "win" a level even if you ignore the objectives and just hide long enough to survive, is also a meditation on what it means to go to war, and what mission really is being accomplished.

The site below contains full maps and object listings for each of the 20 levels in Operation: Desert Storm, with original graphics extracted from the application. The maps also chart the exact position of every land mine, one of the most maddening elements in the game. May your victories be swift.
