Messages of Being Ghosted or Insert Shades of Grey
A downloadable poetry experience for Windows
This is my first game in English & I created it for my 2nd Game Jam, the B&W Jam in 2-3 days, April 2021. I chose the greyscale option and the optional theme was: "You only realize the value of something when it's gone."
It is once again a virtual poetry experience and I was once again inspired by my dear friend Franziska Königs style of black&white photography, abstracted bodies - As NSFW wasn't allowed in the Jam, I was unsure whether my nude hands and feet and tummy etc could count as such, but the resulting scribbles are adding an interesting visual feature. I was furthermore inspired by historical art manifestos, by my recent poetry film "nach dem knall war es still", and there is a psychological aspect to the black&white aesthetics too, asking questions surrounding subjectivity and the reliability of perspectives. it is also intertwined with online dating and several different layers of reflecting on media, materiality and the struggles of a lyrical I with creating art at this specific time period of life in a more abstract way - inventory/stocktaking.
It's my first game with all the art done by myself and moreover with kind of a soundtrack.
