The Challenge

Create a project about archives that uses technology in a unique and meaningful way.

 

The Solution

When asked to create a project about archives, I decided to create an art game which demonstrates one of the greatest challenges all archives face, what to include, and what not. This art games is ultimately impossible to truly win in the traditional sense of a game, a technique used to make a point in a lighthearted fashion.

 

Production

This game was produces in one afternoon in 2013. It uses HTML5 and CSS3 technologies with no images. All graphics are created with CSS using patterns and shapes.
