Academic, artist and Kill Screen contributor Pippin Barr has posted a new game on his site. Called Trolley Problem, it’s based on the ethics conundrum in which you have to decide which people are killed and which are spared by an out-of-control trolley. If you’re not familiar with the problem, this serves as a fine introduction; if you are, it’s interesting to note the various ways it’s been translated into videogame form.
His last project, a Sierra adventure-style game based on a recent performance by renowned artist Marina Abramovi?, was covered by a number of publications, including a cool interview in the Village Voice.
