When the game is in progress, Player 2 can join by pressing either of the P2 action buttons.</p> <p>This game was made in collaboration with Qendrim Hoti for our art show <a href="">Galaxy Champion FUN ZONE</a>. That exhibition centered around using modified/hacked video games to insert personal migrant histories into a variety of virtual worlds. Space Kilim was an game created by Hoti and I to explore how 8-bit graphics have an uncanny aesthetic similarity to the motifs found in woven rugs.</p> <p>A <a href="">kilim</a> is a hand woven rug found in Morocco, Turkey, and Albania. The motifs used in the game are from a number of textiles in Qendrimïż½s collection.</p> <p>In the art show where this was used, the game was played via a ceiling mounted projector which projected the game down onto a white fur rug. This is mostly why the game has no &quot;interface&quot; and no score-keeping: a simple and direct visual presentation in the gallery made more sense.</p> <p>While no code was copied, this game was heavily inspired by this: <a href=""></a>. Also, for now, the music was borrowed from Star Fox 2.</p> Sun, 04 Feb 2018 16:51:10 UTC
