Arcades Project

Initiative sited at s/W/s, with online components
1 November 2020 - 31 January 2021

Arcades Project is an Alternate Reality Game inviting artist-gamemasters to pirate, repurpose, and enact interventions within ludic interfaces. An online project with physical extrusions, it takes the recent pivot to simulation games under pandemic time as one of its surfaces of emergence. It opens up rabbit holes and portals through broken worlds, co-locating viRtuaLity, regional gaming histories, and notions of contemporary agency.
