In »Walden, a Game« we take on the role of Henry David Thoreau and explore his way of living in harmony with nature.

In his book »Walden; or, Life in the Woods« (1854), Henry David Thoreau described how he lived for two years in a log cabin in the woods to escape the industrialised mass society of the USA. Today, the book is one of the classics of »escapist literature«. Thoreau sought to develop a lifestyle in harmony with nature. The game »Walden, a Game« makes Thoreau's experiences as a hermit in nature tangible. Players can immerse themselves in his world (of thought) and experience his philosophy.

In the Let's Play for the exhibition »zkm_gameplay. the next level« Laura Schmidt (co-curator »zkm_gameplay«) and Dominik Rinnhofer (curator »Ecogames«) give an insight into Walden's gameplay. The exhibition »Ecogames« was on display in level 5 of »zkm_gameplay« from 28.07.2021 – 03.04.2022.

The Let's Play will be published online on this page and on YouTube on July 5, 2023.
