We’re taking the epithet absurd from the Theater of Absurd. We don’t necessarily imply an existential crisis or an emphasis on the futility of life. Our fascination is with techniques that deliberately go counter to current industry’s practice or ways to interact with games that go against the intended approach. Anti-exposition, anti-power fantasy, radical formal, radical political, artistic interventions, ignoring fun as the end goal, frustrating on purpose, and many more we can’t even know now. We want to open the window and let these unorthodox practices shine in the limelight.
