WE ARE RABBIT RABBIT
Creators of Ürs
IFComp 2018 AWARD WINNER
"This may possibly be my favorite game in the comp, but I am heavily biased in favor of animal fiction, with Watership Down being one of my favorites. The illustrations are wonderful and the writing has a nice casual quality to it that I enjoyed. It's very much in line with the Watership Down idea of rabbits as clever, but with a very limited understanding of the world... This is prolly going to be the game of the comp that most sticks with me."
"First of all, 'lushly illustrated' is an honest description: the art is luminously sweet, with a mystical 90's vibe. To contrast with this imagery, Ürs is set in one of those familiar semi-dystopias where life is actually not too bad at this very moment, but everything feels Ominous. It's my tendency to feel flat terror whenever people are trying to sound reassuring about random loud noises...but I go against my instincts, and try to agree with our wise leader that it will All Be Fine."
"Ürs is an illustrated hypertext piece about a rabbit who has to learn to manipulate the technology of the ancients in order to save their warren. The art is really good: beautiful, stylish illustrations for every location that manage to communicate the functionality of the technology, the wonder of the setting, and the viewpoint of the rabbit (along with a little Watership Downflavor) all at once."
