Been meaning to mention this for awhile now: Check out this great web based game, the Tulse Luper Journey. I found the site through the excellent weblog Jay Is Games, which carries links and reviews of all sorts of online games and stuff. It’s all good.
Anyway, the Tulse Luper Journey is an offbeat and engaging game. Players follow Luper’s journey through 20th century history, collecting suitcases he left behind. Luper was kind of like Zelig, he appears in various places and moments in history. The game is some sort of tie in to a new series of Peter Greenaway films. In a way, it reminds me of the ‘footage’ elements in Pattern Recognition, William Gibson’s latest novel.
