Art Imitates Life

Honorarium is "an autobiographical art game" from game studies academic star Ian Bogost, which has the following objective: "Assemble lectures to present. If you do well enough, you can unlock invitations to travel and speak."

As a pixelated Bogost character performing simple pattern recognition tasks, you pick up and assemble the blocks that match the given electronic slide on the screen. In the game, you can give talks at home or in various cultural capitals and experience all the fun of Bogost's appearance at a recent Software Studies pecha kucha event.
