Test Tube Titans is a game about mutating giant monsters in a lab and using them to destroy cities. Procedural mutations, physics-based controls, and a humanist anti-capitalist narrative make Test Tube Titans a whimsical but thoughtful experience. The elaborate photo mode offers countless ways to document your prized titans, and the up-to 4-player local multiplayer makes this game something for everyone.
The retro audio/visual aesthetic of Test Tube Titans should make you feel nostalgia for the days when giant monster movies were made using people in rubber suits kicking over miniature buildings.

Biome Gallery is an online gallery/playful space, built on top of the LIKELIKE Online Museum of Multiplayer Art open source codebase. Members of Biome Collective developed it during lockdown both as a shared project, and as an online space we could hang out in and play/create digital folkgames in. The space itself is divided into a number of rooms, each designed by different members of Biome, with a handful of secrets, puzzles, and playful interactions to uncover. During the week of EGX, Biome will be running a number of scheduled events within the gallery space; including a welcome tour, dance parties, artist talks, & folk games.

Doomscroll is a digital art gallery composed of images taken from the game Test Tube Titans, using the game's built-in Photo Mode. Hundreds of expired colossal creatures, each one unique as a result of the game’s procedural generation system, cascade in a seemingly endless series. The gallery is meant to be viewed on a mobile device. Scrolling through the free-falling figures, the viewer eventually feels less compelled to inspect individual Titans. This reflects our experience as spectators of the news as we scroll our social media timelines. We only actively engage with so much evidence of neglected, abused and murdered individuals before we react out of self-preservation or disinterest and our scroll pace instinctively quickens or we stop looking. The exhibit, predominantly made up of negative space, conveys our detachment from death, moral obligation and our culpability in systemic injustices. These themes are also prevalent throughout Test Tube Titans’ cutscenes.
