Pictures at an Exhibition, or: Squinky’s First Solo Art Show OMG!

IMG_0025

A few weeks ago, I had my first solo gallery exhibition of my games at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. It went from October 26 – November 16, and the works featured were Dominique Pamplemousse, Coffee: A Misunderstanding, Interruption Junction, Tentacles Growing Everywhere, Quing’s Quest, Conversations We Have In My Head, and Fitzwilliam Darcy’s Dance Challenge.

Another angle of the same. This time, you can see the dance mat for Fitzwilliam Darcy’s Dance Challenge — it makes the game even more annoying to play than just using the arrow keys!

In the adjoining room, you can vaguely make out a playthrough of In Tune, a game by my friends Allison Cole and Jess Marcotte that’s been sweeping the festival circuit this year. (Also being shown were Seventy-Eight, Magical Girl Olympics, and scenes from our upcoming collaboration, Selfie Game: The Movie: The Game: Song of Myselfie.)
