Can you feel the spill is political geolocation based game. The Game can only be played in the town of Nida!!! The goal of the game is to collect spilled oil in the region of Curonian spit before your time runs out. You have an indicator of how far your next location is, how much oil you have collected and how much time you have left on your clock. At every location you can encounter a new oil spill related problem that makes your task more difficult. The game is firmly tied to a specific Lithuanian region Neringa and an issue that explores the (potential) impact of the Kravtsovskoye /D-6/ oilfield on the UNESO World Heritage site of the Curonian Spit. In that way the game can only be played around the Lithuanian region of Neringa especially in the town of Nida.
The game was created by the Les Miserables art collective.
Les Miserables is an informal artistic group/community and a movement from Serbia that is dedicated to creating and using digital games for social change. Les Miserables are interested in exploring, working with and commenting on glocal socio-economical issues of the underprivileged/subaltern, geopolitics and ecology. Les Miserables are using micro-political and micro-social practices, new solidarities, while at the same time applying new aesthetic and analytical methodology to foster new/alternative subjectivities. Working with board games and/or digital navigation applications, Les Miserables are making subversive games that play with the players expectations.
