About

Who are you ?

We are AAA, a software art collective based in Berlin, with members from all over the world.

Our collective cooperation has formed in response to the frustration we feel with the fine art and video game production industries. We use game engines to make art in the wilderness between these spaces and we hope that allows us to make work that does not have the same constraints.

Rather than adopt traditional game studio models, we are attempting to produce games in a non-hierarchical environment where no one person’s vision is more important than another’s.

Working collectively and trying to create a space for divergent but co-existing ideas and ways of working is important to us - this tension is a huge source of creative energy that drives our work.

What do you do ?

We create video games, give lectures and performances, and maintain a blog.

The project we are working on at the moment, Utopias: Navigating Without Coordinates, is a videogame network of nine worlds - each one a personal utopia developed by a member of the collective.

By connecting our utopias, we draw attention to their conflicting ideals. Is a collective utopia possible? Can different utopias co-exist, or does their idealism render them totalitarian?

You can find out more about our previous projects (and play them !) or explore our blog on the AAA website.

We also run a public community event called aaartgames.

This event takes place in Berlin and explores themes related to game culture, virtual worlds and software art. Sometimes we have talks, other times screenings, performances, live lets plays, and much more…

Why do you need my support?

Our collective is completely self-funded. We all have day jobs and pool together our resources in order to finance our work. We don't make money with our projects and generally publish all our content for free.

In order to be able to keep doing that, we need you ! Your support will help us cover some ongoing costs including (but not limited to):

  • Technical infrastructure costs - we run and maintain our own server where we host open-source collaboration softwares
  • Rent for event spaces
  • Submission fees for festivals
  • Software License Fees
  • Equipment hire (for example gaming laptops and monitors for events)
  • Occasional travel costs for collaboration purposes - most of us are based in Berlin but some of us live in Russia, so meeting up can be very expensive

What do I get for supporting you ?

First and foremost, by supporting us, you get to keep our content free for everyone !

Along the way we will send out special updates to our Patreon subscribers including news and updates about what we are up to, free assets for you to use in your own projects, previews of work-in-progress and bonus material.

Anyone who subscribes before the release of our next project Utopias: Navigating Without Coordinates will receive the Utopias soundtrack for free.
