looking for art-game, game-art or whatever we should call this...

- Have you seen/worked on any interesting independent game/webgame/mod with an artistic approach?

- Have you seen/worked on any interesting piece of art (film, pictures, hypertext, fiction, music etc) made with videogames lately?

If so, could you please drop a line (and a link, if possible) in the comments section?

I'm doing research for an exhibition on these subjects, and it would be great if you could help me find some new material.

Thank you all very much!

Hi Chico! Well "Play with Fire" actually fits this description... We got it into a number of exhibitions on art games (and we made a loss on it!)

I could also post a link to this post on Only a Game/ihobo to expand the reach of your search, if you like - you'd better email me if you want this, though.

Hope all is well!

My last game, The Perfect Color, is pretty artistic. I made it to examine an aspect of the real world, so I think it's probably the sort of thing you're looking for. Here's the URL:

Ask me if you've got any questions about or problems with it.

Hello Mory,

Thanks for the post. I will check it out!

Take care,

I saw your response on my blog. I've subscribed to this post's comments, so you can talk to me right here. If there's anything I can do (within reason) to make The Perfect Color work better for the exhibition, let me know. I make games so they'll be played; the more people play them the happier I am.

Chico--I'm currently co-producing a play that's set in an old adventure game. We use 8-bit music, 16-color graphical backdrops, and live actors. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but you can check us out at:


Any questions, feel free to drop me a line at chappell-underscore-c-[[at]]-earthlink dot net.

Critical gameplay is a collection of games with an art game intention - see


Some are more "arty" than others.
