Nice! This is an excellent collection of well-made, challenging works. The Third Dimension is a funny, poignant riff on Look Around You, taking the concept of the original show into a much more direct, political direction. Hidden Files does a great job of making the user enjoy being complicit in terrible government acts. Welcome to Stanistan is visually fascinating - how does every photo come out so beautiful? Intriguing work deserving of wider attention.
The BLUFF Collection
A downloadable collection for Windows
For its 2018 edition, Print Screen Festival commissioned artists from around the world to create new short-form games following the annual theme of “Fakes and Fabrications”. The projects in this collection touch on the politics and aesthetics of fabrication - either as the metaphor, goal or challenge of playing them.
Evan Greenwood and Ben Rausch's The Third Dimension is a satire about educational games and the history of Apartheid in South Africa; Mischa Krempel's Hidden Files traces a major cover-up controversy that shocked Germany in 2011; and Studio Kachingos' Welcome to Stanistan is a satire of national PR campaigns in the age of Instagram.
