Boston Cyberarts and the National Parks of Boston are proud to present the latest digital artwork on the Harbor Islands Welcome Center’s LED screens on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. Anthony Montuori has created Harbor Islands, a working video game in the style of Asteroids that plays itself based on weather data collected from the Boston Harbor Islands. The piece imitates the retro arcade trope of games that would demo themselves until someone pressed start or inserted a quarter. Using scraps of the history of video games, all iconographic bits have been plucked from titles that the artist played as a child. The game utilizes actual harbor wind direction and speed, humidity and temperature to mediate its play. The opening reception is held in conjunction with ArtWeek Boston.

PANCAKE ALERT! Come play Battered 3. The sequel to Battered.

I am happy to announce the completion of The Adventures of Sisyphus and RAGZ. I technically completed these games years ago, but with anything like this, I wasn’t entirely content with them until now. To share the games with more people, I am offering them as free downloads and removing the buggy and out-of-date browser versions.

My games are not copy protected in any way, so feel free to share them as much as you like and the source code is included. In the odd chance that you would like to exhibit this work, I ask only that you contact me first.

As of this writing only the Windows versions are available. Expect Linux versions very shortly, followed by Mac OSX versions.

Head over to the games section for the links.

ENJOY!
