AN ITSY BITSY CRISIS
Join us for the opening of LIKELIKE ONLINE, the littlest Massively Multiplayer Online World! Choose a fashionable avatar, hang out with pixelated friends, stand awkwardly in the corner of a loud gallery, play obscure games together… just like before the pandemic!
This month we are presenting a selection of works about crises and rebirths. All six games are made in Bitsy, a friendly tool created by Adam Le Doux. In recent years the Bitsy scene has produced a myriad of playable zines, confessional pieces, minimalistic adventures, and interactive poems. Playing and making Bitsy games is a perfect activity for a long day in quarantine.
