This game is a playful tribute to a not so playful reality of monotonous and bleak cityscapes built out of same prefabricated concrete blocks.
Very specific for Eastern-Europe but evident everywhere else too. These relic tower blocks usually mark failed social programmes and neighbourhoods planned as clumsy as some failed building block game…
As a user, you are invited to build and demolish such city-scape yourself.
The project started as an attempt to capture changing European cityscape and to create a more engaging interaction with the topic. Developing project further goal is to expand narrative and showcase particular style, era but also social problems defining examples of architecture. Some are still around us and some are already demolished and replaced by luxurious new condos.
Tower Block Game is designed and developed by an interaction designer Lukas Valiauga.
*This is an alpha version towards a bigger project. Feedback on concept, functionality, experience et al is more than welcome!
