TANKS: THE UNTOLD STORIES is a collection of game modifications made to Unity’s default TANKS! tutorial for CART 415 with Pippin Barr. By remixing and rewriting an archetype of the shooter genre, each chapter reflectively interrogates the relationship between “Tank” as play character and “tank” as cultural/societal/moral symbol. Further, the works each address a formal game design element in their presentation, respectively highlighting lights & camera, music & sounds, and 3D objects as aesthetic experimentation elements.
This project has been presented at Crema Liminalis in 2018.
