Venus of Willendorf
A platformer game about the female image
This is a platformer indie game made by me, Shahar Bar, and Ido Waxman. I did the concept design, art, animation & GUI. The game design was made by me and Shahar Bar.
Venus of Willendorf is a platformer game. The player is a woman who goes out naked at night, skating along the city streets and spraying graffiti, while dodging the police light beams aimed at her. The graffiti image aims to “Take back the female image”: offering a representation as depicted in Venus of Willendorf, glorified, naked, and ample, that is in contrast to a covered body in the patriarchal religions, Islam, Judaism and Christianity, and the thinness befitting the modern-day fashion code.
