Steven Spielberg’s Interactive Movie Game Transformed for Your Browser #ArtTuesday
Somewhere in the 1990s, video game companies started taking some weird, desperate chances. Steven Spielberg’s Director’s Chair may have been one of the strangest. Now Paolo Pedercini has made a version of the forgotten game you can play on your web browser. Here’s more from MOTHERBOARD:
Pedercini cut out all the gamey bits from Director’s Chair and produced a choose-your-own adventure style game from the raw footage called Director’s Choices.
“All these limited choices had film coverage to support them, so buried in the CD-ROM there was enough footage to make a Bandersnatch-style Choose Your Own Movie,” he said on Twitter. “By the way the footage was totally raw, I had to edit all the clips, add sounds and music. I also upscaled the ultra low res videos with an AI-tool. Very stupid project, I don’t recommend.”
