How do you provoke the hell of out the Catholic church, McDonald’s, Apple and the US Army? One way is to make make games about paedophilic priests, the soldiers controlling the unmanned drones in Afghanistan, the neverending commercialized loop behind Apple’s third world-destroying smartphones and how to run a fastfood-restaurant into the ground.
Join us for SpilBar 13.0 where the one-man-guerilla-game provocateur Paolo Pedercini, aka Molleindustria, will talk about how to create provocative guerilla games, which highlights the moral challenges in the world through not only their sound and graphics, but also their central game mechanics.
With the motto ’Radical Games Against the Tyranny of Entertainment’, Molleindustria (meaning soft industry/soft factory) has been pushing the limits of what games can express through political flash-games since 2003.
Molleindustria has obtained extensive media coverage and critical acclaim while hopping between digital art, academia, game design, media activism and internet folk art.
