App description: The Triennale Game Collection is a virtual exhibition of video games created for the XXI Triennale International Exhibition by five of the worlds most renowned independent game designers, showcasing these artists experimental approach to interactivity.

The five featured artists are: Mario von Rickenbach & Christian Etter (Dreii, Plug & Play), Tale of Tales (Luxuria Superbia), Cardboard Computer (Kentucky Route Zero), Pol Clarissou (Orchids to Dusk), and Katie Rose Pipkin (Mirror Lake).

Each week for five weeks a new game will be available in the collection. These games are self-contained takes at interactive narrative, puzzles, and exploration.

The Collection is curated by Italian game designer Pietro Righi Riva and the virtual space in which the exhibition takes place is produced by Italian game studio Santa Ragione, makers of the Best of 2014 AppStore hit FOTONICA.

[Week 1] Il Filo Conduttore by Mario von Rickenbach & Christian Etter (Switzerland), is a small story about about a cord, which hangs down from the top, overlooking a handful of delicately arranged objects.

[Week 2] LOCK by Auriea Harvey & Michal Samyn (Tale of Tales, Belgium) is a small exploration of the universe, as previously imagined: based on cosmologies which place the Earth, and thus humans, at the center of the universe, Loci Omnes Caelesistis Kyries shifts between a simple diagram and a fascinating machine.

[Week 3] Neighbor by Jake Elliott, Tamas Kemenczy & Ben Babbitt (Cardboard Computer, USA) is the story of a wordless friendship that evolves over time, set in a small underground domicile and the patch of desert above it.

[Week 4] A Glass Room by Pol Clarissou (France) showcases pictures and animated sequences from Pol Clarissous own life. The flickering photographs projected on virtual walls create a narrative that evolves as the player manipulates the device.

[Week 5] The Worm Room by Katie Rose Pipkin (USA) is a first-person exploration game which exists as a series of endless glass greenhouses that the player may wander through for the same reasons one visits a physical botanical garden; to walk, to take in beauty, to learn.

** Triennale Game Collection is designed for iPhone 5 and above. It is NOT compatible with iPad2, iPhone 4s, iPod touch 5th generation, iPad 3rd generation, or the iPad mini 1st generation

Bah, not sure what I feel about being locked out of most of the games for several weeks. Not that I'm impatient (though I probably am), but it's more of a space thing. Speaking of space, the first app was a great little thing. Like seeing a refreshing short film to start the day. Recommended so far!

LOCK was absolutely stunning! Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Just wanted it to go on forever. I must have zoomed in and out several times before I could draw myself away from its magical art.
