Lets sing about politics

Radikal Karaoke This week I discovered Radikal Karaoke. This program has nothing to do with singing, but is in fact a program designed to help you deliver political speeches. This game is created as a commentary on the proliferation and pattern in political speeches. It was created in 2011 by writer and poet Belen Gache, of Madrid. It is available…

Up against disorientation

Justin Katko’s poem, Up against the Screen Mother Fuckers was a very interesting piece of literature. Katko’s own description states that all the graphics were made from CAVE and then the audio portion was manually inserted after. Using quicktime as the method to play his art. Another thing that is note worthy, is the title. He says that it is inspired…

Conformity

In the panoramic interactive drama, What We Will by John Clayley, the audience gets to navigate through panoramas by clicking and moving the mouse around. The creative work allows users to experience live-recorded soundscapes with layers of dramatic art elements.

Even Captain Jumbo Can’t Save You

At first glance, Captain Jumbo seems to be a bright, sunny, and sweet game where you explore the world through the eyes of a toddler.

The Dome of Words

I began to explore different sites to try and discover a piece that was unusual and I stumbled upon a website known as “the code of things” which was created by  Benjamin Laird where he created a project that, “investigation into biographical poetry in print and programmable media. Specifically, how the media in which biographical poetry is written changes the nature…

Unraveling Stories With Yarn (or my time as a magical intern)

While making my weekly App Store rounds, I came across this newish app called Yarn. It had a pretty interesting description, boasting “thrilling, interactive stories on your device, for free. Solve puzzles, help characters make important decisions, and decide how stories end.” So I decided to go ahead and download it.   At first glance I found it pretty nice looking.…

A game of Praise regardless of how you play

For my assignment, I played with Nothing You Have Done Deserves Praise. The game involves you going through different levels, where you must move in different directions, or jump up or go down. As you do so, different phrases of praise appear and encouraging you to keep going further with the game. Surrounding the character and the screen was strange…
