I had a similar experience getting stuck and having difficultly with the controls. It's sad because the concept, aesthetic, music, and color palatte are soo lovely. I love everything about the game except actually playing it :(

From the pic shown it looks like it was developed for specific hardware tho... I wish I could play it like that! I bet it's really smooth

yo I felt it too

the  warped red world and glitches at the heart of the building

concrete pores like my nose

everything perfectly structured

Thank you soo much!! That really means a lot! I have thought about returning to the world of Arcadia in future projects, and have some ideas about other stories in that universe, so it's definitely a possibility :) 

This just warmed my heart thank you so much!! 💖💖

Ahh thank you! The art is definitely dada-inspired; another point of reference the Situationist idea of "detournement" (basically just a fancy word for collage, but they also have some cool ideas about its political implications).

Thank you for drawing my attention to the fact that the link to the written component was broken! I've fixed it now. Let me know if you have any trouble accessing it now. If you do end up reading it, feel free to be in touch on twitter or email if you'd like to discuss any of the ideas I wrote about in it! I love to talk about this stuff. :)

Thank you, I'm so glad you liked it! Drawing UI on the window--how imaginative! That kinda makes me want to try out a finger-drawn look for the UI in this game and put it all on the glass. Could look really unique. Maybe if I go back to it one day and add some more features I'll experiment with that :O

Thank you so much! So happy you liked it! I think the horse is indeed hardest lol, all the characters have different sized colliders.

I'm super excited about dinosaurily, it looks so cute and feel-good! Probably has a similar audience, so @ people reading this, if you liked my game check out https://jellolin.itch.io/dinosaurily!

Out the Window is a cute and nostalgic car trip sim in which you control an imaginary companion running beside your car, change the radio station, and pick out gas station snacks. Included is a healthy dose of media theory about how motor vehicles changed our perception of time, space, and landscape. 


Thank you so much! The music was meant as a bit of a joke, although it does also reference the anticapitalist politics of solarpunk and the game. When I made it I wasn't even sure anyone would play until the end! Really happy you enjoyed it enough to do so! :)

In a distant future in which capitalism and consumerism have continued to run rampant, corporations have replaced all government, and planet Earth has long been relegated to legend, society constantly moves to new planets and throws away the old ones like last year's model of smartphone. You play as a guest at the launch party for the most recently developed planet: Arcadia. The party takes place at the planet's premiere attraction, the Arcadia Botanical Gardens. As a guest, you may wander the Gardens' various rooms, engage with interactive elements you find there, and eavesdrop on the other distinguished guests whose stories and dramas play out in a repeating cycle over the course of the night.

The game is a first person, single player game made in Unity. I submitted it as my media studies senior thesis at Vassar College in 2018. Since then I've touched it up a bit and I'm hoping that it's ready to find an audience. Thank you so much for taking a look! :)
