DEVELOPED by Thomas Waterzooi
“I made this game because I wanted to explore my complex relationship with modern art. What should I feel? Can my little sister do this? I’m still not 100% sure, but I do know that modern art has had an impact on everything and everyone in the world today. And so I hope my game can have an impact on your life as well” - Thomas Waterzooi, designer & developer.
