Barmark is a point and click adventure in which the player is challenged to change the world around them “in order to achieve harmony and personal perfection”. Yes, I know. You’d better take a look.
Boasting no points and no death, Barmark won the 2013 Game Concept Challenge by offering players the chance to be in control of their own experience. The brief is minimalist but interesting:
“Wander through stunning landscapes; immerse yourself within the amazing visuals and sounds of nature. Find harmony by forging your own environments, creating worlds to achieve personal perfection. Experience the calming world, and alter it to your liking.”
Barmark is the product of a small indie team from Sweden called Stormatt Studios, for which they instantly earn six to seven points. (Stormhatt!) This intriguing indie is coming to Android and iOS in northern spring, with any luck. Check out some cool artwork from the project below the trailer.
