Wabi-sabi games and Reject False Idols
In the past few weeks, Andre Asai, 1/3 of the Loud Noises, is focused on a little and weird project, the Wabi-sabi Games.
According to Wikipedia, wabi-sabi “represents a comprehensive japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. The wabi-sabi games are going to follow this world view. They will be little experiments, sometimes imperfect, sometimes personal, sometimes silly, but nonetheless works made with love. The development process will be documented in form of screenshots, texts, tweets, texts, videos or audio of me probably cursing aloud in Portuguese.
The whole development process is documented on a timelapse:
And because it was the first wabi-sabi game, everything was SUPER experimental. We tweeted a few images and drops using the hastag #wabisabigame, but from now on we are starting to use our devlog more often to document the process. Expect more little updates from us here!
We are already begun developing our second wabi-sabi game. More will be revealed on the following days!
"Reject False Idols is all about destroying false idols and his followers with energy blasts and talking to GOD! Enter the temple, destroy everything, repeat! It’s heavily inspired by Vlambeer’s Karate and the music Thou Shalt Always Kill, by dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip." - Author’s description
