Reviews

“Between the flat, pastel video clips, the game sections become vivid, even psychedelic”
Polygon

“It’s like the Mel Croucher future that never was and that’s good enough for me.”
Retro Remakes

“An LSD-infused display not unlike that of a 1980's Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper come to life.”
Retro Gamer CD

Methodology Experiment #1

POP:ME1 was designed music first, with the game mechanics, visual aesthetic, and overall structure derived from the creative flow of the music production process. As Rob created each song, he imagined a game that would go along with it, tapping into the emotional energy of the music he was creating, documenting his concepts, and executing the ideas with minimal iteration. What emerged is a series of interactive vignettes, disjointed, taking the player on an intimidatingly intense and equally indecipherable journey of frustration and wonder.
