Entrant 2020

Yuliya Kozhemyako & Margarita Skomorokh


OVERSEAS is a collection of short art games, or digital poems, which are joined together by a common interface – a mysterious place resembling a spaceship.

It is not quite a game: there is no challenge and no story in the usual sense. The goal is to take a journey across worlds to perceive the associative relations between them and figure out the obscure meaning of what is going on. Quotes by Heraclitus, throat singing, a plastic bag dancing in the wind – here, like in poetry, all sorts of things are tied together.

The collection is potentially unlimited, and in the course of time new games will be added. Now there are four episodes: psychedelic trip, a forest horror, a crash course on shamanic techniques, and a simulator of an identity crisis.
