Game, Device 6

This is a game. It was designed by Simogo, Simon Flesser and Magnus Gardebäck. It is dated 2013. Its medium is 32” samsung me32c plus one brightsign.

Simogo was founded by game designers Simon Flesser (Swedish, b. 1982) and Magnus “Gordon” Gardebäck (Swedish, b. 1976). The game Device 6 (2013) is a work of interactive fiction. Lines of text stretch out and change direction, leading the player around a mysterious mansion. Illustrations offer views into the mansion’s rooms, revealing clues to help the heroine through her adventure. Part novella and part puzzle, the game combines sound, text, and graphics to create a unique experience.
