About Us

We are a group of five students (two artists, two designers and one programmer) at the Cologne Game Lab who created a project with the theme “is this the real life?” and the emotion of disgust. We’re interested in critical games as well as serious topics, thus our approach to the theme.


Keep in mind that the game makes use of themes that are not suitable for minors under 18, as well as rapid flashing images that may not be appropriate for those with epilepsy and other such conditions related to this type of sensitivity.
