Having missed the opportunity last week by a few hours to warn Offworld that Montreal collective Kokoromi was going to be giving its first public show of their previously revealed game superHYPERCUBE — headtracker and all — I’m doing due diligence to not let this one slip by.

Kicking off May 14th with a night of chiptunes and 8-bit projections at Montreal’s École Bourget with local artists Noia and Matt Fuzz, Kokoromi members Heather Kelley and Cindy Poremba will be at the Montreal Biennale May 15-16th collaborating on a new game in the form of “love letters – deeply personal direct communication to our objects of affection.”


Kelley and Poremba say the event, Live Game Code: Love Letters, will “demonstrate and illustrate our own attempts to make a playful software system,” and will include “laboratory assistants in the Porous Lab [creating] visualizations and audio interpretations of the game code, exposing the normally private game development process for public observation.”

The assistants will be plotting, for example, “lines of code written per hour.. number and type of crashes… or cups of coffee consumed and minutes spent on Facebook.”

Both events will be held at École Bourget at 1230 rue de la Montagne, and are open to the public: see their accompanying Facebook event pages for more information on the whens and wheres, or via Kokoromi themselves.
