Wreck Any Site With Your Own Katamari Ball of Destruction

If you’ve ever played Katamari Damacy then you should know what to expect with this awesome new javascript hack for Google’s Chrome browser.  If you haven’t, then imagine a giant ball of duct tape that can pick up anything in its path be it trees, babies, cars, junkies, etc, and while you pick up more objects the ball continues to get bigger and bigger.  So take that concept and pair it with some crazy a*s Japanese music and essentially you have Katamari Damacy.  If you still need some help visualizing exactly what a Katamari is then check out this trailer for the PS2 game.

Ok, now that you know what a Katamari is imagine having one for your web browser!  That’s exactly what an anonymous web developer has created for Chrome.  Using a snippet of javascript code you can run rampant on any website with a Katamari ball, which will pick up text and other graphics from your favorite site just like the ball in Katamari Damacy.  It’s actually a pretty awesome time waster, especially if you’re stuck at some dead end corporate job in the land of cubicles.  The best part is that you can even get your multiplayer on with it by entering a website URL into the the entry box found on the dev’s site here.  If you prefer to keep it solo, just copy and paste the code found on that same site into any site’s address bar after you’ve browsed to it.  Just in case the site goes down here’s the javascript code to use.

javascript:var h=’http://174.129.249.239/js/’,i,n,ss=[‘http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js’,h+’Renderables.js’,h+’Game.js’];for(i=0;i<ss.length;i++){n=document.createElement(“script”);n.src=ss[i]+’?’+Date.now();document.head.appendChild(n);}

It really is a fun little game to play in your browser, and the music will stay in your head for quite some time.  Give it a whirl and tear up EntertainmentBuddha.com, or another one of your daily stops on the Internet!  You’ll know you’ve done it right if you get a white box in the middle of the page you’re viewing with a start button on it.  Just push that and get ready for some Katamari action website style.  You’ve been needing something to annoy your co-workers…
