TRANSFER is pleased to present ‘Artifacts II’ a solo presentation of Phazero. In partnership with Wallplay #ONCANAL, a corridor for new ideas, this exhibition is part of the ‘International Womxn’s Day’ programming curated by Terry Lovette and AnnaLiisa Benston.
Artifacts II is a first-person exploration adventure game, set in surreal environments representing memory spaces in the character’s mind. The game is about the character's mental health journey and the entanglement of trauma in the mind and body.
Artifacts II uses elements of exploration (or walking sims), RPG, and Survival MDA to reveal the fragments of a character’s broken past.
You can download and play the Demo on itch.io. The game was an Indi Cade Official Selection in 2018 and was featured at the Game Art Festival at the Hammer Museum, LA.
