Under the bed

Electronic Language International Festival

“Under the bed” is a 2D narrative adventure about pausing in video games. But it is also about you finding your way, groping. About this fear of the dark we have all known and that some of you may still encounter today. You play a child waking up in her/his bedroom, plunged in absolute darkness. No luck, it’s impossible to get back to sleep. Through the eyes of this child and her/his imagination, what should be a simple, but slightly scary walk through the house might quickly turn into a nightmare. The principle is simple : You move in the dark and you can only see what is around you when the game is paused. Be aware, it’s not a platformer with holes to be avoided everywhere. You’ll need to observe, memorize and think in order to resolve simple puzzles.

I am Tristan Hilaire (a.k.a. Khamelot), a 21 years old student from France. I create participative, interactive and/or narrative works and games, in order to set up discussions and thoughts on various contemporary subjects. I’m always aiming to develop more innovative game mechanics, protocols and aesthetics, just as I love telling immersive stories and putting them in pictures.
