Yay! Finally!!! The Silence Variations is now available for download!!!
I suppose we were all stunned in August, 2004 – when some thieves manage to just casually steal Munch‘s famous ‘Scream‘ and ‘Madonna’ paintings. And when I say casually – I mean just taking the darn things off the wall and running out of there!
So Overdog Games designed this magnificent game for Bergen Kunsthall‘s Game On exhibition last year.
“Silence plays out endless variations on this theme, as a two-player computer game installation: Wave your guns, find the paintings, and get the hell out. If nobody gets hurt, all is well. It’s the classic heist story, but with a twist: There is no flaky partner, no smart-ass heroes, and no wise-cracking cops. Too simple? Well, this time that’s the tune.”
The paintings have finally been retrieved! And the game is finally available for download! Yay!
And they warm my little ol’ heart when they also release the code under a Creative Commons license!! Bless them!!!
I want more, more and MORE!!! Bogost has also picked up on it! Yay!!!
