Patch me Up
This game and custom controller were created with Jesse Gazic and Jupiter Wildwood for DMG‘s annual Feb Fatal Game Jame. The theme of 2019 was Killing Cyberpunk, meaning critically exploring the genre without harmful tropes.Patch Me Up focuses on body augmentation as an accessibility device, and through that allows players to navigate health and intimacy in a cooperative race against the clock. The game combines our love of textile art, puzzles, and co-op gaming.This game was exhibited at the Killing Cyberpunk Arcade on April 25, 2019 as well as Doors Open Toronto at the Toronto Media Arts Centre from May 23-June 3, 2019.Game art and programming by Jesse Gazic, writing and crafting by Jupiter Wildwood, and vest controller peripheral construction and programming by Sebastian Pines.
