Drosophilia

Work your depressing day job! Decorate your desk! Experience true apathy! But watch out for the twist! Maybe you’ll be all like, “Help me! Help me!”

Drosophilia was made in 48 hours at the Global Game Jam 2014 (plus a few more hours of polishing) with Gordon Calleja and Sidsel Hermansen. It was written in Twine. Sound effects were recorded by Sidsel with a Zoom H4 and music and effects were made in Logic. Background videos were recorded with cellphones and processed in After Effects and iMovie. Some background videos are of actual oil paintings by Gordon.

Drosophilia was in the exhibition Fear of Twine with a number of other very interesting Twine games. It has been covered by PC Gamer’s Best Free Games of the Week and Emily Short.
