Explore a surreal nightclub drenched in neon and haze. Create music, play arcade games, discover the whole labyrinthine club, and leave a message for future visitors. Take refuge away from the pandemic and crazy world events for a little while in the Isolationist Nightclub Simulator, heading to Steam on March 11th. Explore a futuristic, neon lit, labyrinthine nightclub, playing mini-games, creating your own electronic music, traversing the forest-scale garden or just relaxing in one of many Chill Out rooms.
In a dark and familiar future, a mysterious plague has all but shut down life on earth’s surface. From the safety of your bunker, enter this vivid simulation and transport yourself to a futuristic, neon and smoke drenched nightclub where you can create your own music, enjoy a virtual drink, and explore the whole labyrinthine club (including a dance floor, bar, arcade machines, enormous indoor garden and art gallery). This blend of walking simulator, music creation game and relax-em-up immersive sim has a little something for everyone.
Created by composer and sound designer Edwin Montgomery, Isolationist Nightclub Simulator is a sandbox-meets-multimedia art experience that depicts an all-too-familiar situation where plague has all but shut down life on Earth’s surface, driving you to escape into your very own vast and futuristic nightclub. Create your own music (no prior skill required!) using in-game instruments, including a synth keyboard, drum machine, bass loops and arpeggiator, or occupy yourself with an assortment of mini-games in your club’s Arcade.
Feel like just relaxing instead? Explore a series of serpentine spaces, such as an art gallery, a forest-scale garden and a number of Chill Out rooms where you can sit back with a virtual drink and relax with soothing music – perhaps of your own making. You can also leave notes for other players with the in-game messaging system, which randomly populates items such as drink coasters and toilet wall graffiti with your messages. Isolationist Nightclub Simulator is supported by Creative Victoria’s COVID-19 Sustaining Creative Workers grant and is designed to provide a relaxingly creative experience that offers a little something for everyone, no matter what mood you are in.
