Matajuegos

A surrealist documentary videogame about a river that flows across Argentina’s Cuyo Desert and how the global climate crisis is threatening its historical ecosystem. Explore dreamlike landscapes, shapeshift into different animals, and listen to real-world interviews about the historic and intimate relationship between peoples and the lands they live on.

Matajuegos is an Argentine workers’ cooperative dedicated to creating indie videogames with cultural, political, and artistic perspectives that explore Latin-America’s present-day social context. Founded in 2016, they have also done significant work in producing Spanish-language game criticism around issues of social justice, labor rights, art games, and Latin American identity.
