An online open source freeware arcade for both desktop and mobile devices. It is a playable Pop Art parody of our online life, and digital reality.
The game was created entirely by one person, and is playable online at Tetrageddon.com
Tetrageddon Games is free, and open source. Aside from playing, you are encouraged to creatively engage yourself. If you see something you like you can download the sourcefiles, modify, or built your own game based on any assets you chose.
Open source makes progress accessible to anybody that wants to contribute. I like to think that cooperation is key to evolution. A big part of me wishes that art, or entertainment, would be the same. I think if artists would be more open, and less protective of their work, art would be much more socially relevant. Realizing that people are no longer happy with being just the consumer, Tetrageddon aims to satisfy the need to play, create, adapt, copy & paste, and build on.
Tetrageddon Games is a satire of our digital life. I aim to do with games what Monty Python did with humor in terms of ridiculousness, and constant change of themes. It is the internet in the form of a game, as if your browser landed in the web's version of Ripley's Believe It or Not!. It is full of rabbit holes, and waves of bizarre creations that you play with.
I encourage the player to interact with the project as a whole (holistically). It is not only separate individual pieces, but a narration of the dynamic times we are in.
