Relive / Herleef
Different Perspectives Art Games Festival highlights what videogames as a cultural medium can do and aims to inspire by presenting, meeting & creating games during a two week festival in Het Bos.
The central gathering point of Different Perspectives Art Games Festival #1 is Relive / Herleef: An exhibition of autobiographical video games.
Each work tells a different story, and different stories often need different ways of arousing empathy: different forms of experiencing, or in this case.... Reliving.
Relive / Herleef presents games that give new insights into what games can be, both in terms of content and form.
Some are made by teams over the course of several years, and were published globally. Some are made by one person in several days, as a form of personal expression. But they all share heartfelt personal experiences, each in their own way.
