Congratulations to Aymeric Mansoux, Marloes de Valk and Dave Griffiths whose project Naked on Pluto was just awarded the First Prize in the VIDA 13.2 Art & Artificial Life International Awards!
Naked on Pluto is a Multiplayer Text Adventure on Facebook. When you enter the game, you find yourself on Pluto, in a city under the rule of Elastic Versailles revision 14 (EVr14), an Artificial Intelligence functioning as an entertainment colony. It is the Las Vegas of the Solar System, a true paradise for consumers and corporations alike.
Naked on Pluto was developed during a shared residency at the Netherlands Media Art Institute, Baltan Laboratories and Piksel between June and November 2010. It was further developed in June 2011 with help from AVEK.
