Angel Arcade is a mobile online game that is made in collaboration with creative coders Obso1337. The work is an extension of Keiken’s on-going worldbuilding project Morphogenic Angels, which takes place 1000 years from now. This future exists in a radically different time and space that defies and transcends our current political, societal, financial, and subjective reality. In this world, people (now called “Angels”) have gained post-human capabilities through the organic reengineering of their cells, which allows them to tap into non-human consciousness and merge with different species.
The online game uses a combination of touch interactions and device motion players, which allows the player to move through a 3D landscape while collecting cells that enable them to alter their cellular and genetic code as a Morphogenic angel.
Angel Arcade is part of Ángel Yōkai Atā co-commissioned with KANAL – Centre Pompidou Brussels, and supported by Saastamoinen Foundation.
