What if there is a game you can’t win? How long would you play if you were told there is no end? Explore a virtual world where each room is a song in an album and every puzzle unlocks more mystery. Created by Closed Forum, Anxiety Arcade is bleak, funny and bizarre.
Looking at anxiety through the lens of those that experience it, Anxiety Arcade uses iconic retro gameplay to get people talking about mental health, rather than trying to solve it.
Closed Forum are a collective of artists that specialise in digital interactive experiences that put audiences at the heart of their work. Led by Leeds based artists Adam Sam Sas-Skowronski and Matt Allen, their performances, games, experiments and experiences look at themes of anxiety, dreams and reality.
