Exhibiting at PixelPop Festival 2019:

after HOURS

Emo Alien Cult (Bahiyya Khan, Claire Meekel, Tim Flusk and Abi Meekel) - Johannesburg, South Africa

after HOURS is a vignette, FMV game, that allows players a glimpse into the life of a young woman who was molested as a child and suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder as a result. By spending a night alone with Lilith in her bedroom and subsequently, her head, players learn Lilith’s story by adopting a double gaze: that of the player witnessing Lilith’s story and piecing together why she behaves and responds as she does, and to an extent, the gaze of Lilith herself. This is achieved by having access to the voices in her head and the thoughts that respond to those voices.

Bahiyya Khan: Emo Lord, Game Designer and Writer.

Tim Flusk: Game Dev doing his Masters in rendering black people into digital spaces.

Claire and Abi Meekel: Mixed media artists who specialise in cinematography, animation and sound.
