Beyond Screens – Alternative Controllers w/ Squinky
March 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Dietrich Squinkifer, aka Squinky, is a transgender and neurodivergent new media artist who makes weird videogames about feelings while somehow continuing to survive in a late capitalist cyberpunk dystopia. After stints in both industry and academia, and gaining recognition for works such as Dominique Pamplemousse and Coffee: A Misunderstanding, they are currently in the process of cofounding a worker co-op game studio called Soft Chaos with two of their very good friends, while at the same time working on a solo album of short games titled Squinky and the Squinkettes present: SECOND PUBERTY.
IndieCade’s Twitch show exploring work that pushes the boundaries of, or comes entirely off the screen. Genres covered will include participatory theatre, alternate reality and live action roleplaying; escape rooms; Big Games; and alternative controllers. Each hour-long episode will feature an in-depth conversation with creators of these genre-defining games.
