Novena is a game about comforting a friend. Touch Melbourne is a game where you explore and interact with the city, and you meet up with a friend.
SIMULACRA is a realistic “found phone” horror game that takes place entirely on a mobile phone. A voyeuristic experience that combines point & click adventure games, found footage videos and fully realised phone apps.
Vignettes is a colourful exploration game without text or characters, where objects shapeshift as you spin them around to wander through a kaleidoscope of different moods and settings.
