Alt-Games: ‘WALLPAPER’ review

WALLPAPER is an interactive digital narrative; a concept somewhere between contemporary installation art, and traditional video games. I’ve heard the term “alt-games” used for it, and I feel that’s fairly fitting — it combines non-linear storytelling with elements of spatial design, cinematography, sound design, and a plethora of other disciplines. Recently there’s been something of an explosion in this area, fuelled jointly by the success of titles like ‘Gone Home’ and ‘The Stanley Parable’, not to mention the rapid innovation and democratisation of tools like Twine. Some interactive digital narratives are text-only, some are 3D, some use virtual reality, some are audio-based.
