Still too hungover from Spring Fling to start that research paper that’s been lurking in the back of your mind all semester? Starting to lose your mind in pursuit of the elusive 2048 doge? Take some time to relax with this soothing yet mesmerizing game, Little Alchemy.

The premise of the game is simple: start with the four basic elements – earth, air, fire, and water – and combine them to eventually create all 460 possible elements. Just start clicking around, and pretty soon your brain will gear into the weird logic of this game. Drugs may help with this. “Yoda” is one of the possible elements. Click past the jump for screenshots from the depth of my obsession back in the fall of 2012, to inspire you to keep pushing on get that perfect 460. I will admit, it got a little crazy.

This one is an artistic composite of three different elements – “twilight”, “prism”, and “owl”.

This is a visual ode to the songs of Leonard Cohen:

And this is my graphic narrative of Lord of the Rings (note there is no “hobbit” element, so I have had to substitute the element “nerd”):
