Title: Greetings from Rorschach\Larshe
Post by: Nuprahtor on July 16, 2011, 09:26:00 pm
Hi there!
My name is Ivan and I live in Russia.
One year ago I started to create games with my own conception. This conception called "Rorschach\Larshe".
I wrote a manifesto, which describes the main features of Rorschach\Larshe games. Here are excerpts from the manifesto:
1 - dominant element in a R\L game is an atmosphere.
2 - abstraction and primitivism graphical content (Rorschach)
3 - darkness and symbolism (Larshe)
I call my games "Game Sessions", because they usually short and have strange gameplay (some people say that my game has no gameplay, though)
I think that my Game Session conception is very close to Notgames. I looked this page http://tale-of-tales.com/tales/ArtWithGames/ (http://tale-of-tales.com/tales/ArtWithGames/), and I found that you prefer to compare Notgames with the classic painting. I tend to compare my games with the paintings of the Surrealists, Impressionists, Cubists. I am not a professional artist, musician or programmer. I just want to create games that I want to create. Also, I am not bother - is games is art or not - I just like this game design approach, and I don`t care how it is called.
You can play my games here - http://rorschach-larshe.tumblr.com/ (http://rorschach-larshe.tumblr.com/). I hope you like it.
I think that this forum is interesting place to communicate with others game developers.
Thanks for attention

You did create some very effective atmosphere in your work, especially with the audio, very cool.  I also like surrealism.

Hello Nuprahtor,

I´ve discovered your games some days ago and I really like the path you are exploring. I wanted to write about them here but it´s a nice surprise to see you here already.

Keep up the good work!
