Digital Art Friday: Nina Freeman, Emmett Butler, et al., 2014, ‘Space Dad’

A web-based game, born out of a game jam, tweaks some of the tropes of adventure gaming and grounds it in a narrative that gives its protagonist an additional emotional layer.

Space Dad is a video game that originated at a game jam, designed and programmed by Nina Freeman with additional programming from Emmett Butler.

Jon Kittaka did additional design and graphics and Deckman Cross making the sound and music.

We know Freeman from her participation in the Code Liberation Foundation. Play the (very short) game, among others, on her website.
