Pešiaci
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.

Sophisticated investigative game in which a player searches for a true picture of events in narratives and contexts using exploration and connecting parts of the story.

Papers, Please
A sophisticated rendering of life in a totalitarian regime, in which the player finds themselves in a situation in which they are blackmailed and forced to do things with which he does not identify. The story (perhaps tactically a sham) of loyalty to the state and protecting its borders from migrants, with twenty different endings, helps one realize the value of freedom.
