El Gran Artísta

“El Gran Artista” (The Great Artist) shows the hidden face of the theater through an operator who works behind the scenes trying to make the play go well using a series of levers and pulleys to manipulate the elements of the stage. The player will be given a script, which will not always be complete, and must prepare the necessary elements for the next scene, as well as fix the various breakdowns that may arise during the show. Our gameplay is inspired by the LCD games of the 80s and 90s like Game&Watch and our aesthetics in pop-up books and papercraft elements.
