Pizza My Heart December 16, 2011

Pizza My Heart is an interactive Machinima film that explores the limits and flaws of morality within contemporary videogames. Using comedy and satire, this project raises questions about classic systems of morality within gaming, and seeks to provoke alternatives to these dubious designs. As you navigate the dialogue between an arguing couple and attempt to acquire a pizza, each decision that you make demonstrates how popular games often exaggerate and perhaps trivialize moral choices. Players are encouraged to follow their own moral compass when deciding how things turn out for the couple and seeking to win. But keep in mind that your in-game intentions might often be entirely ignored within Pizza My Heart! This interactive experience demonstrates that not all life-altering decisions are made just before a child zombie sinks her teeth into your neck.  A few of these choices are made in entirely mundane situations, while waiting for your laundry to dry… or in a pizza shop.
