The discussion about video games being a form of art is always a good point to start when we find gems like this one. Tangiers appears to be the most surrealist video game you will ever play, let’s say the Dalì of gaming.

The game is an indie project by a two man studio called Andalusian, and based in Bristol, and it’s looking for funds on Kickstarter.

Following the words of Alex Harvey, one of the two men behind the project, Tangiers is where stealth gameplay meets the darker avant-garde of the 20th century, defining his creation as a dark, uneasy game, but also as an exploration of broken cities and landscapes.

You still don’t see the art? Here’s what Alex said regarding the artistic inspirations for the game:

“Writers such as Burroughs and Ballard, artists within the Dada movement and the music and textures of Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and David Lynch all drive us. They are our motivations – often oblique, sometimes in open reference.”
