Cancer of Time
Today, we spend every free moment hunched over a screen. Using the same tools that brought on this addiction to begin with – the phone, the tablet – the authors invite the audience to enter the world of a protagonist suffering from a 21st century civilizational malady, the “cancer of time”.
Cancer of Time is a fable you can play. It combines elements of game and animation, blurring the line between the two genres. The audience helps move the story along using simple interactions. The game is divided into short chapters, which allows one to complete it quickly. But maybe it would be better to pause for a while longer?
