The sidewalks of Bratislava are occupied by advertisement tripods, traffic signs, lampposts and garbage cans, while the rest of the territory is occupied by wildly parked cars. The game Pawns seeks to highlight the long-standing, unresolved problem of the quality of public space and, in a fun way, shows the most natural way to get around – by walking, which has turned into a frustrating and dangerous activity.
