Yesterday, Double Fine Presents announced that it will publish the upcoming interactive animation KIDS, which will be released on iOS, Android, and Steam later this year. The animation and game will center across a psychological experience regarding group dynamics.
KIDS is an experimental project about the psychology of the group, allowing players to move with and against crowds until everyone is gone. The final products are an interactive animation, a short film and an exhibition. The game is also the second collaboration of director and animator Michael Frei and game designer Mario von Rickenbach after their award-winning animated short film and short game Plug & Play. The game is set to release this year on iOS, Android and Steam (PC/Mac).
“We couldn’t be happier to have KIDS as a part of our Double Fine Presents family” said Greg Rice, Vice President of Business. “We’re huge fans of Playables’ work and in absolute awe of the thoughtfulness they’ve brought to KIDS, resulting in one of the most artistic statements we’ve seen in games in a long while.”
