The popularity of Agar.io has been on the rise in the past few months. This only means one thing, that it is a fun game. I find it fun because of the challenge of always beating your personal record. The challenge of reaching this occurs over and over for such a simple game.
It is fun to play a game in which your goal is to other players. That way, you are destroying and eating at the same time, to excellent occupations. Plus it takes place in a petri dish, which is somehow very fitting for a game designed for mobile phone users to play.
I think Agario is a fun, relaxed game to play, and personally I don't see how it could be related to political advocacy? I also don't like the TIL acronym. Agari.io is a simple game that's on the internet that is not meant to harm anyone or push for any movements.
During the campaigns of the June 2015 Turkish elections, Agar.io was used in Turkey as a medium of political advocacy; many players were naming their cells after Turkish political parties and references, with alliances formed between players with similar political views, battling against other players with opposing views. Some political parties have used Agar.io in campaign posters as a symbol of support. Agar.io is a great game to play.
