Reviews

“PSweet is simultaneously cyberpunk-y and obsolete, reminiscent of dialup-era noises, floppy disks, and the awful turquoise-neon pink color combination. There’s an almost terrifying quality to the vaporwave graphics, a reminder that the same anxieties surrounding evil AI and the all-expansive power of Big Tech have and will likely continue to exist forever... What is truly remarkable about Future Proof’s work is that the PSweet game is just a piece in a bigger transmedia puzzle. All of Future Proof’s performances, media, and other works (spanning podcasts, museum tours, and Twitter bot chains) exist in the same universe, which orbits LUX, a corporate giant willing to go to any lengths to convince you to consume their products—or in this case, attend their film screening. Legacy objects, characters, and histories exist across their projects, as they are recycled and reshaped into new storylines—surrounding you with content in a way that feels quite literally immersive.”

Ok but really,


PSweet is a visual novel done in the style of 90s shovelware promotional material for a fictional operating system. It's a part of the wider Future Proof universe, which we've been producing online, and at live events in NYC since 2017.
