Subversive Play: Take a Breath

Even in some of the most brutal games, it is possible to find beautifully created spaces. If you take a moment to look around after the game has stopped pushing you to the next event, you can find pockets of space where the action comes to a stop. In these spaces, you can pause, take a breath, and spend a few minutes enjoying the peace.

I spent some time finding some of the more serene locations in some of my favorite video games including Saints Row IV, Dishonored, and Bioshock.

I like making interactive things. Sometimes these things are also games.
