Those who have attended one of my presentations over the last few years will recall Peter Greenaway’s multi-platform project: The
Tulse Luper is the lead character in an ambitious series of projects initiated by film director Peter Greenaway.
So far, the project includes three feature films, a series of DVD’s, travelling exhibitions, books, publications and this online game produced by Submarine.
These are all part of a growing universe of stories, facts, fiction, history and drama based on the adventures of a man who spent most of his live as a prisoner – mistaken for someone important, a spy, a lover, an artist, a writer and an observer.
Greenaways statement that “cinema is dead” calls for new ways of communicating ideas. This game is part of the search for a crossover format that breaks the boundaries and rules that have been imposed by film, theatre, books, games and other traditional media.
Created by developers, artists and students from around Europe, The Tulse Luper Journey explores new boundaries of online interactive media.
The online game finishes on October 15, so all those “researchers” out there are prompted to hand in their findings pronto.
