"Black Room," is a browser-based, narrative game about falling asleep on your computer, on the internet. Conceived as a "feminist dungeon crawler," you play as an insomniac of the verge of sleep, moving through shifting states of consciousness. Hallucinatory, pixelated visions of landscapes filled with sprites ripped directly from the arcade/NES/SNES video games of your childhood appear and disappear as you click through fragile internet spaces. Point-n-click mini games are scattered throughout the narrative, e.g an html version of the NES game Duck Hunt, but with an overwhelming number of ducks. Often interrupted, you continually return to the Black Room, a meditation technique your mother taught you for falling asleep, visualizing black flowers in a black vase on a black table in the center of a black room.
