Damocles 2 : Rise Of Nothing 2017

Damocles 2 : Rise Of Nothing is an art game evolving around the concept of reward and inducement in video games. Many commercial games use diffrent strategies, both with visual and sound effects, to stimulate the player. This game does it too ... but completely randomly. It also offers a fake goal : to accumulate swords and different Items. Despite giving the player the possibility of picking up weapons and “shoot them” at “ennemies” there is no death or damage in this game. Nothing will rise, ever. What are you doing playing this. Who are you anyways. Have fun.

It was first presented for ELO 2018 : Mind The Gap at Center Of Design of Université du Québec à Montréal, in Montreal .
