too high art for you :p
I'm guessing some of you will have heard of it but for those who haven't you might be interested by a recent... uh... 'Game' released by Tale of Tales.
It's called 'The Graveyard'.http://tale-of-tales.com/TheGraveyard/
I won't say anything as half the fun with these things is finding out their nuances yourself :p
Long story short though Tale of Tales have released this as an 'art' game and have made a lengthy Post Mortem on Gama Sutra about it:http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/3865..._tales_the_.php
The highlight being:
"Overall, the reactions to the game (gathered from the articles, their comments sections and personal messages), fall into three categories.
Of course there is the expected response of the typical gamers whose desire for zombies whenever they see a cemetery is apparently insatiable. They tended to describe The Graveyard as "boring". Of course.
A little bit up the ladder of human civilisation, we find the people who were turned on by the idea but turned off by the actual experience. They were "disappointed". From what we can see, this was either caused by a failure on our part to maximize the qualities of the game or by certain expectations coming from the player.
Despite the fact that games are supposed to be interactive, many gamers still seem to be incredibly passive when it comes to the meaning of their entertainment. They expect to be spoonfed and don't seem to have any experience with literature, modern theater or fine art (or even art films) which require active participation, not just of thumbs and index fingers but also of heart and brain.
A final type of response was the simply "delighted" one. These people really enjoyed the game. And/or they were happy to see the experimentation that we're doing with the medium."
Most intriguingly you can pay $5 for the full version in which the only difference is that the old lady might die. Kinda morbid huh?
