Vandals is an infiltration game which will take you to the cities most emblematic of street art. In this turn-based game, the aim is to avoid police surveillance and paint walls with increasingly difficult access.
From Paris to Tokyo, via São Paulo, Berlin and New York, you can follow in the footsteps of renowned street artists like Blek Le Rat and Keith Haring.
Vandals will enable you to spray your alias on the walls of New York like Lady Pink, to paint childlike characters like Keith Haring, or to take inspiration from the poems of Miss.Tic to write your own.
“Vandals was born when I started to create my own street art with my collective, RaspouTeam,” said interactive designer Théo Le Du Fuentes, aka Cosmografik. “From there, I wanted to put the stresses inherent with illegal painting, the anxiety of being caught, and of course the pleasure that is covering the urban grey in bright, volatile pigments, into a video game. And so, this is Vandals: my first game set in the world of undercover urban arts.”
Players in Vandals need to sneak past police, cameras and dogs to successfully complete stencil-style graffiti designs. Aspiring artists can discover the work of real-life, iconic street artists, and learn how they have influenced urban culture in the some of the most street art-rich cities in the world, including Paris, New York, Berlin, Tokyo and Sao Paulo.
