Lose/Lose a game with real consequences

Lose/lose is a straightforwards shmup vertical spaceship game, with a twist. All enemies are procedurally generated from files the game finds in your hard drive, and whenever you destroy one of these enemies with your fire, the file it was based on is deleted permanently as well. The enemies themselves do not attack you and you can only be killed by colliding with them at which point the game itself is erased

More than an actual game to play (Unless you really don’t care about the safety of the stuff on your PC) lose/lose is a concept piece designed to make us question some assumptions and be conscious of the value of the fairly fragile digital media we have in our computer which we are increasingly dependent on

Check out lose/lose here though I wouldn’t advise you try to play it 🙂
