Splattershmup

Splattershmup is a game that explores the intersection of the classic shoot-em-up (or “shmup”) arcade game and gesturalized abstration or “action painting” (a term coined by critic Harold Rosenburg in 1952 and often used to describe the work of American artist Jackson Pollock). It is intended to allow the player to reflect on their in-game actions and strategy through visual record, and to approach the creation of art as an arena of action. Art can thus be created, shared and discussed that comes “from inside the moment” of game-based decision.
