Video Games Syllabus
The Contemporary Avant
developer from Gothenberg Sweden, is probably my capstone
source, and almost all of his games are stunning.
Throttole * Mondo
Medicals * Design
Drumset Fucking Werewolf * are to be
a gorgeous, infuriating, abstract
discourses around para-sitism & ucanny twinning
Rohrer is a alt-gaming celebrity whos somber
life/relationship games like Passage
have been a poetic difference from the ADHD genocide of the mainstream.
is a restro-nuovo, with zero focus-pocus on the graphic, and a near
total textualization of the visual (although you can connect viewers to

[many of these may require DOSbox emulation,

Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters is one of the most hilarious
ornate clever Novels we have. Stunning and godlike in its biological
innovations, it offers an infinite path.
Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist is an ingenious twist on the
anti-hero Actor-Protagonist in a strictly anti-modern Western
landscape. It's also a Kareoki sing-along.

Worm-Being. This is probably very important. [idk

the ROM files to play these games)
a perfect pair, Final Fantasy III gestures at a political upheaval and
the struggle toward progressive recombination co-ops, while
Chrono Trigger treats triads and Time-Space. Plural in its Monad,
Dozens of endings and tangents. Very Heiddigger.
Honorable Mentions include:
Black and White, Samorost,
Civilization & Master of Orion II,
Masters of Magic, Lemmings, Pooyan & Yoshi's Islands, Roxanne
and the Quest for the Time-Bird, Spore...
