Video Game Created in Excel Spreadsheet

A Canadian accountant has reportedly created  a basic video game using Excel spreadsheets. Arena.Xlsm is a fantasy role-playing game created using macros within the Microsoft accounting application. Players fight monsters as well as gather items during the game to give their characters more power. The setting is drawn with basic characters available in Excel. Cary Walkin, a Chartered Accountant practicing in Toronto, says he created it while studying for an advanced degree. The game works in Excel 2007, 2010, and 2013; but not with Mac versions of Excel.
