"ok ok," you ask, "honest question marathonmaker What constitutes an artgame?"
-- and here's my answer, thanks for asking friend: "An "artgame" can be loosely defined as any game that you would consider to be unconventional, avant-garde, experimental, or uncategorizable in gameplay, story, and/or art. It might be deliberately sloppy in appearance, or it might be visually stunning. It might barely play like a game at all, or it might use conventional gameplay to tell a completely otherworldly story. These games are typically small in scope and published by solo developers or small teams on platforms like itch.io, but some classic examples of the genre would include the likes of games like LSD Dream Emulator, Samorost, and Space Funeral."
"ok ok another question" you say
"yes?" i reply
"can i submit one game or a whoel block?"
"ok listen i get it artgames are usually like 30 seconds long, if you have like 15 you wanna show off over the course of an hour By All Means I Will Not Say No To Basically Anything You Submit As Long As It's A Cool Game"
chug some water and pony up with those sweet runs&walks and let's make this the best ART TA YET
