Asterion is a short interactive work which is freely inspired by one of Borgès' short stories called "The House of Asterion".
The purpose is to use elements of the videoludic grammar, such as a combat system of hand-to-hand fight, as well as sound and visual experiments in order to make the player live the death throes of the Minotaur.
Logically, the camera is in first person and the vision and the point of listening of the player correspond to those of the avatar.
The system of control gets closer to classic First Person Shooter. The player can move with his keyboard and give some blows with the mouse button activating the narrator's hand.
