1700


1700 is a computer game that thematizes the storming of the Pizzeria Anarchia, an occupied building in Vienna. In July 2014, the decision was made to storm the building with 1,700 operatives (later corrected to the number 1,452), with a tank engaging in battle with nineteen punks and moving level by level through the barricaded floors, as if in a game. The sheer abundance of police wandering around the building in a rather clueless and aimless way was rendered using mechanisms of the old classic video game Lemmings, for the obstacles in the game 1700 primarily emerge through planning errors on the part of the police. The game was released on the Internet free of charge and already had over 10,000 players during its first day online.



Broken Rules

Since 2009, Broken Rules has been developing unusual computer games which captivate with their unique artistic style and with themes that go far beyond common game clichés. In the current project Old Man’s Journey, for example, players experience the moving life story of an elderly man. The team working with Felix Bohatsch, Clemens Scott, Jan Hackl, Peter Vorlaufer, and Martin Pichlmair has won many international prizes with its games, which have been released on iOS, PC, Nintendo, and Android platforms.
