Description

Titel der Lehrveranstalltung:

Flummox Play Mechanics for Non-Humans

This seminar is FOR STUDENTS OF EXPERIMENTAL GAME CULTURES.

We discuss “GAMES for NON HUMANS” _ as contribution to Your core artistic project in EXPERIMENTAL GAME CULTURES.

You will get an introduction to systems and engines of METAVERSE and learn about the technical basis of OPEN WORLDS _

The conceptual aim is both, to develop an experimental game for and with NON HUMANS.

The seminar and discourse on Avatars and societies, human and non-human life is inspired by a historic theater piece, questioning technological conepts and society:

R.U.R. - Rossums Universal Robots (Karel Čapek, 1922). It serves as inspiration and basis.

The outcome will be a play in the virtual world.

The aim is the development of a playable protoype, presentation and participation.
