so good! really cool to see an objective representation of the city i've lived in all my life but through the idiosyncratic gaze of r pope.  i kept having the inclination to write something really problematic so i guess i learned something about myself and the impact of (political) space/place? also the power fantasy of graffitiing a mural is.. fuk idek i dont wanna think about it but there's a LOT to think about. brb gunna read some lefebvre. very well done, pope! u should be proud


thank you so much! i really appreciate the feedback and it is very validating haha, i too should read some lefebvre


Came back to add to my previous comment that this wee game really stuck with me and I found myself thinking about it a lot after. I'm not sure I can put my finger on it, but to me, the connotations of the name and description; the dimly lit, limited view; the freedom in the stillness and eerie quiet; and the confrontation moment with the mural all combine to create a contemplative/philosophical/art experience that really gives you something of this city. It's also edgy as fuck.


Thank youuuu I really appreciate the feedback! I am glad it landed like this honestly cuz those are mostly notes I was actively trying to hit! Apart from the edginess haha, that's just a happy accident. But cheers, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!


I really like this. It creates a quiet, brooding atmosphere in which you become very aware of yourself and your interaction with the (contentious) space.
