Shrine Maidens of the Unseelie Court
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Shrine Maidens of the Unseelie Court is part of a larger, nameless, world-building project exploring queer apocalypse, trans-futurism, and possibilities for community that might exist there. As with most sci-fi, it's more about circumstances of the present than prognostication. We live in catalytic, if not cataclysmic times.
This iteration explores feelings
of isolation within suburbia and an ambivalence about online
connectivity as a mode of circumventing it. For many trans women,
online platforms are our only life line to others like us.
Furthermore, the opportunity to socialize in a disembodied way can be
highly therapeutic. Nevertheless, neither the architectures of these
spaces, nor the actors within them , are inherently benign.
this project, I'm indebted to: Open Source Software like Unity,
Twine, but especially Yarn; my friend Seanna Musgrave who helped me code a
collider; and Lilium
who made the track, Gaze,
that appears in the underworld area of my environment.
