BlueSuburbia is the perfect name for this maze of poetry and art that uses the gaming platform as a delivery mechanism for literature.
It is best described as an anti-game because the author believes games to be more than an entertainment medium. BlueSuburbia uses the artistic platform of the 21st century to weave a seemingly infinite web of superb animation, hovering in that wonderful territory between wicked and beautiful... It is art freed from the creatively confining restrictions of tangible media, to become a virtual reality that engrosses the viewer with emotional, visual, and musical stimuli, all endowed with artificial intelligence. It is a work of art one no longer passively observes but feels the impact of.
It sounds like a joke but you can literally get lost while wandering down any one of this anti-game's exquisitely drawn meandering pathways, or corridors of the poetic mind.
The childish, magical feel is BlueSuburbia's most wonderful quality. It literally sucks you in. The artwork and animation leaves one altogether breathless and curious for what comes next. It has a feel of being from the other side of the looking glass, and gives you the nagging sensation that the rabbit hole is never far off. The Alice in Wonderland quality is mixed with a dark Burtonesque approach to the strangeness of normal life. It’s as if the white rabbit had appeared to, rather than a 19th century little girl, Edward Scissorhands. Toss in a little mindfuck straight from the Matrix, where babies are plugged into a pumping syringe that endlessly injects the facades of society into its brain – and you have successfully described the sunny cul-de-sacs of BlueSuburbia.
