Dreeps plays itself but wants you to take pictures…

Dreeps (Hisanori Hiraoka, 2015) is a game that “plays itself”, allowing the player to enjoy looking at the unfolding of the game. On the other hand, Dreeps provides a minimal button on its lower left encouraging players to take screenshots to be shared on social networking sites. Gameplay is outsourced to the software, while the photographic activity is handed back to the player-photographer, tightly connected to the distribution of images on sharing platforms.

For those who don’t have the time to play RPGs anymore,

this is a new type of game—an Alarm Playing Game!

To play dreeps, just set the alarm. That’s all. Easy, right?

When you head to bed, the robot boy will sleep just like you, regaining HP and recharging for his next day of adventure!

When the alarm rings in the morning, both of you will wake up and start your day. When you go to work or school, the robot boy will head out on an adventure through fields, valleys, and peninsulas where monsters roam. Or, he might discover dungeons where strange bosses lurk…

Either way, every day is a new day for you and the robot boy!

But how does adventuring work? That’s real easy!

After the alarm sounds, the robot boy’s adventure will automatically continue as long as he has enough HP, even while the app is closed. You might miss some events, but don’t worry about it.
 There’s almost no text in this game.

So whenever you feel like it, load dreeps up and check on the robot boy’s adventure. Or, leave it running on your desk while you work, study, or snack. Play however you want, and take it at your own pace.

Visuals and sound can give you hints to what sort of story is unfolding in this little world. But use your imagination! Take those hints and try to guess just what’s happening. Oh! And don’t forget that you can share screenshots of and thoughts about the game by pressing the “Share” button.

dreeps was created to give the player the ability to enjoy a story little by little, day by day. With beautifully crafted art and animations, this is a new kind of game that’s easy to pick up and simple for anyone to learn.

Cobra Club HD by Robert Yang

Cobra Club HD (Robert Yang, 2015)

Cobra Club HD is a free photo studio game about body image, privacy, and dick pics.

If selfies argue that all faces are worthy of memory, dick pics show how all cocks are worthy of consideration. In the vein of noble projects like Critique My Dick Pic, we wish to “take back” the dick pic from the clutches of creepy congressmen and tabloid headlines. Popular discourse rightfully centers the consent of dick pic recipients, but government mass surveillance (Can They See My Dick?) also threatens the consent of dick pic senders, as state spy complexes admit they “collect it all” with almost no oversight or transparency.

To help re-imagine what dick pics can do for society, Cobra Club gives everyone, even people without dicks, access to the means of (dick pic) production though a fully-adjustable virtual 3D dick and versatile camera controls. It is both no one’s dick and everyone’s dick. Perhaps the dick pic is democracy itself…

Beyond the aesthetics of dicks, though, Yang is also playing with ideas of surveillance and of privacy and self-presentation. He talks specifically about the Edward Snowden interview John Oliver conducted for Last Night Tonight where dick pics are referenced in relation to the data the US government collects as part of surveillance programs bringing into question the consent and privacy of the sender.

When you zoom out and get far more of your character in shot you’ll notice his face is pixellated – a nod to the desire for privacy, for not being outed, even to you, the usually powerful puppetmaster.

Pupperazzi by Sundae Month

Pupperazzi (Sundae Month, 2019)

Dodge between people and obstacles as you try to capture canine beauty on everlasting digital photos. Double jump across buildings to get that lucrative shot of a local dog celebrity just trying to live their life. Slow motion zooming helps capture mid-air moments that actually make you feel something.

When you finally give up your dreams of a stable life as a photographer, commiserate with other amateurs through local multiplayer dog-spotting competitions.

True beauty comes from within, but we think in-game photos are major competitors.
