Tale Of Tales founders

We feel much of contemporary art is in a dire state. Videogames offer ways to overcome the limitations of linear unidirectional media that make them unsuitable for capturing and contemplating the complexity of today. But not without effort.

We want to make this effort. To create a new art form with a new medium in order to bring art into people’s lives – art that matters, art that affects them, art that connects them to the beauty of existence. This is our subversion. This is our plan to overthrow our inadequate leaders and bring the human race back on its path to the divine.
