Grafting cold game mechanics onto heartwarming story, Future Proof Games continues the unconventional tradition of Melissa and Gregory Avery-Weir’s games. Our games are art, and we will explore the frontiers of interactive entertainment.
We create prophetic games that demand audacious compassion from their players and bring about dramatic social change. Our work explores transhumanism, looking at ways in which people can push the borders of what it means to be human. It encourages compassion and empathy for the uncomfortable and the alien, producing a more nuanced ethical perspective. We want our players to have fun becoming more insightful, thoughtful, and nurturing people.
Our games require understanding strange characters and cultures in the hopes that players will get practice in audacious compassion. They contain ethical situations that are too complicated to be approached dogmatically, provoking nuanced thought about difficult problems. They celebrate the different, the cybernetic, and the unsettling to encourage joy in stretching players’ cultural comfort zones. They condemn oppression and exploitation while portraying and exploring the systems that allow such things to arise.
We operate in North Carolina. If you see a car with “Play FPG” license plates, give a friendly wave.
