Art Game

Warning: Flash

This game was exported in Flash and, as you probably know, Flash has been discontinued. As such, I can only provide access to the source code and the .swf file at the moment.

If you happen to have an ancient computer that still runs Flash in the browser, or a copy of the Adobe Flash Standalone Player, you should be able to run the game.

At some point I may port the game to JavaScript or similar, and it’s possible that the ruffle Flash emulator will get to a point where this game will run again. Let’s see.


Art Game was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.6 and the excellent Flixel library. The font is Commodore 64 Pixelized by Devin Cook.

You can read my writing about the game on my blog. John Brindle wrote an extraordinarily good essay about it on his blog. Art Game was featured on, Rock, Paper, Shotgun, The Huffington Post, Free Indie Games, HyperallergicBuzzFeed, Super Level, Gamescenes, PC GamerAnimal New York, and Gamasutra.

Art Game has appeared in the exhibitions INPUT at the online gallery BlanktapeUp Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start at SPACES, and at the A MAZE / Berlin. festival.
