Ed Parnell's Cunning Plan

I been here and there with receding hair…

This epic accountant turned your dull Excel spreadsheet into an awesome RPG – The Next Web

A Canadian accountant has built a role playing game (RPG) inside of Excel. It’s called Arena.Xlsm, and it does in fact work.

Why build an RPG inside of Excel? The question is backwards. Why the hell wouldn’t we? Anyone who spent the majority of math in High School programming their TI-83 to prevent boredom knows what I’m talking about.

You can download the game here.

Note: While TNW tested it on Excel 2010, your mileage may vary. Also, you have to enable the spreadsheet twice, one for editing and second for content. Excel’s protections built to keep you safe in this case are roadblocks in between you and some fun.
