Hannah & The Klondikes

2017
Hannah Nicklin

Info:

Based on a series written for RPS on collectives and game making practices in contemporary game design, the collection is an attempt to both paint a portrait of the specific collective, and to try and thereby think a bit about the different contexts in which contemporary games are being made.

The essays feature an introduction to all 10 members of Klondike (current at time of writing), interviews with Pol, Gib, Delphine and Tyu, and an as-yet-un-published conclusion reflecting on global game design practice-as-work-of-art in an era of late capitalism. (It’s a bit less stuffy than it sounds. Only a bit, mind.)
