Art Wars ( http://kck.st/n1titP ) is an adventure game set in the New York City Art World where you must navigate the art scene of Downtown NYC. Your goal as an artist is to earn 'cred' points and keep your cash flow positive while in a battle to keep your career and social life intact.

Can you survive and succeed, or are you doomed to life in a cubical? Art Wars is like Oregon Trail meets 2011. Some might even consider this an (almost too) realistic representation of life in NYC as an artist. We are seeking funding to make this project happen and need your support. http://kck.st/n1titP

In NYC they say you can never have three things at once: a good job, a decent apartment and a relationship... or can you?

At Blip Festival, the People are Almost as Cool as the Music

Leigh Alexander —At Blip Festival, the People are Almost as Cool as the MusicThe first thing I thought about this morning, as I opened my eyes, was that the cat trying to rouse me from my hung-over sleep sounded like a Game Boy.

The second thing is that I had a really, really good time at the opening show night of Blip Festival 2011 last night.

This year's Blip Festival was thrown at Eyebeam on New York City's West Side by a collective of chip musicians called 8bitpeoples, with help from NYC nonprofit The Tank.
