Cooldown showcases works of videogame art and experimental interfaces created by emerging artists and designers from Game Design Systems and The New Arcade in Parsons’ Design and Technology program.

Game Design is a quest to answer questions no one asked, all in the name of fun. For Cooldown, Game Design Systems references classic gaming experiences, while turning the gameplay itself into an art form. Works created in The New Arcade explore the possibilities of bespoke interfaces in interactive games, proposing an alternate history of the arcade.

Stef and I are moving into beta mode soon. I am currently jumping through all the hoops that apple’s got in oder to get our app setup in test-flight, essentially a closed beta. If you would like to be a part of this, DM or email me.

One of the things I had to do is write an app description. What is this thing I made anyway? Why do I create? Is it because I cant give birth? Why are any of us here?.. It got existential and then I completely re-wrote how I imagine a businessmen running a business might. 

“Future Flower is a new Augmented Reality app that lets you find, plant, collect, arrange, and send virtual flowers. Flowers grow at real world locations. Pick flowers you find and add them to your collection then use those flowers to design arrangements. You can send and trade arrangements with friends or just plant them for others to find. The more you explore your city the more types of fantastic flowers you might find.”
