Finding Electric Purpose



  Finding Electric Purpose utilizes the interactive qualities of the video game medium to create a humorous artistic narrative. It explores the ontological experience of playing video games seriously, placing them as an alluring entity that demands time and mental energy at the expense of the physical world. The game simulates hardcore gamer life. As the player your only option is to play video games. Doing so grants various positive messages and dramatically fast-forwards the time. As the days pass by the room starts to build up clutter, but the computer remains a bastion of positive energy. The increasingly dangerous and disgusting room can be read as a metaphor for life and an antithesis of the idealized world presented to us through video games.
