There Is No Game



There Is No Game might only take ten to 15 min­utes to com­plete, but it fol­lows in the grand foot­steps of un­re­li­ably nar­rated games such as Por­tal,

BioShock and The Stan­ley Para­ble. And, much like Davey Wre­den’s Source mod (later re­leased as a stand­alone ti­tle),

There Is No Game pokes fun at tra­di­tional videogame de­vel­op­ment as you tres­pass far­ther into the vir­tual world the nar­ra­tor keeps try­ing to dis­suade you from ex­plor­ing. It’s funny, too, thanks to French cre­ator Kamizato’s play­ful writ­ing and voice act­ing. Kamizato, a sea­soned Con­struct 2 devel­oper, cre­ated it us­ing the soft­ware as part of New­grounds’ De­cep­tion jam ear­lier this year. We’d like to tell you more, but it’s best ex­pe­ri­enced with as lit­tle prior knowl­edge as pos­si­ble. Not that there’s a game to ex­pe­ri­ence, of course.
