DI 13.12, 19H ACUD Club
Fantasia Malware is a collective and label that makes fantastical, magical, corrupt, chaotic software. They develop and publish experimental video games and live performances.
This year they have hosted four events in the series Fantasia Malware Presents - centered around using videogames in live performance. Fantasia Malware Presents is a tiny cross section of the fizzing underbelly of videogames - a late capitalist medium wrenched free from the grasp of the marketing team to make boundless alien dream worlds.
The evening begins with Fantasia Malware's latest game - "SEX! At Alexanderplatz" - a performance and dating sim set in hell (Alexanderplatz). Crank the lever of your dating app, let the slot machine spin, let sparks of fury fly, let lonely hearts die (alone).
Next up, Halber Ball presents "Fragrance Point" - a game about trying to get to a party or making some friends, whatever happens first. The vibe is organic, round, artificial, sexy and sexless. An ice-cold glass dildo crossed with an early 2000's Windows Media Player music visualisation, always pulsing never throbbing.
The event will end with a DJ set by Bungalovv.
