beads of orange glass
A downloadable game for Windows
beads of orange glass is a wordless storytelling game. two players with different but equal roles collaboratively shape the space within the game.
players modify the world: planting trees, causing falling stars, altering the weather, eroding the landscape in real time, growing moss. players also alter themselves: becoming deer, birds, or even trees.
rather than focusing on narrative, the game presents players with a combinatorially rich textural space to explore. as they wander this permutation space together, players find pocket universes to linger in.
each time you play the game creates a new generated world and a random set of characters and verbs to use.
