This game seems neat, and I know it's intentionally cryptic, but my partner and I can't figure out how to do anything but bring up the book and our hands. Our inputs don't seem to do anything with the exception of the joystick UI rotating.
A downloadable game for Windows
Pact is currently Windows only. Xbox 360 controller (or similar) required.
...9 demons ... 9 hidden patterns...
Find a partner (or attempt on your own) and work together to uncover the input sequences that reveal each demon. As they come to you, demons will in turn ask and answer questions about your future.
Pact is a blend of some of my hopes and anxieties as a queer person. Since queer identities are often demonized, I like imagining that literal demons are also super gay and that maybe the intangible and unknowable forces that make the rest of society uneasy are actually on our side, watching our backs.
Pact is also part of the Pretzel series: an ongoing exploration of dance thinking and the learning and sharing of movement through videogames.
