Quest for Reality
Quest for Reality is a cinematic RPG (role-playing game) about computer and Internet addiction, based on real stories and events.
The goal of this exploration video-game is to find a way back to Reality from within the depths of virtual world where you are lost. The beginning of the game positions the player in a similar solitary state that the addicts face before escaping the real-world. From a first person perspective, the participant is moving through various interactive environments which simulates the different stages of the addiction, from the common ones into witnessing the extreme cases. The entire narrative is based on interviews with real-world computer addicts, who are represented in the game as guides as well as portents.
Quest for Reality is a hybrid form of video-game which merges documentary style with fiction, striving to produce cinematic feel. The intention of this project is to explore alternative ways of storytelling through embodiment.
