A quick 2 from the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality
I’m a bit exhausted, so I’m just going to take a look at Oikospiel and Beacon.
Oikospiel: A dog opera in five acts
This is sort of a game, sort of an electronic acid nightmare opera. It is unspeakably weird and for a moment or two I thought it was either causing my computer permanent damage or had triggered a stroke.
I kind of love it.
This is experimental on a scale that is barely recognizable as a game. It reminds me of the weirder end of the CD-Rom book/game/experiences of the late 1980s or early 1990s. But turned up to 11 and spiked directly into your spinal column.
Beacon: Sci-fi Action Roguelite. Collect DNA from enemies and mutate yourself to victory!
A isometric view shooty exploration game with a healthy dose of body horror as you attempt to augment yourself and mutate wildly.
I don’t love the feel and complexity of the controls. It feels a little like the game is fighting me and it’s not pleasant.
The graphics and audio are great, but I’m probably not spending a lot of time on this one.
