Deep Below a Dreaming City a Shadow Lies Untold
”Deep Below a Dreaming City a Shadow Lies Untold” is a game based on a dream I had in February 2015.
In this dream I lived in Göteborg, one of Sweden’s three largest cities, and the year was 2005. I was the only one that knew that far down under the city was a frozen maze. An old labyrinth that occupied my thoughts day and night and that contained something sentient and very dark. Something that originated from my own self, that I one day had to confront. That day came and I took the decision to descend and dressed in my grandfather’s old green parkas I walked deep below the city to those icy corridors. To confront myself and the shadow within.
”Deep Below a Dreaming City a Shadow Lies Untold” is a simple and small graphical homage to those games I loved and still love from the 1990s, like ”A Link to the Past”. But it’s also my game based investigation and symbolic representation of the jungian concept of meeting your own shadow within.
