WELCOME TO DOVELAND: A virtual, recuperative "chill-out" lounge for ravers on the comedown (made with Bitsy)

"It is my understanding that certainly the [chill-out room] became its own meaning for the type of music but the reason there were chill rooms at raves was because people were taking such good, strong E they were literally overhearing, dropping like flies from overhearing. People would dance, like, ten hours so the original reason for the chill room was to quite literally cool them down."

Clive Gabriel on the etymology of the "chill-out room"; Mark Weidenbaum's 33 1/3 book on Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II

What to expect from Doveland?

  • 5-10 minutes of Bitsy madness
  • An original, ghostly soundtrack made using Ableton and a few Omnichord samples
  • Kooky sprites to interact with in each of the four comedown rooms
  • A (very) easy scavenger hunt that leads to the end game situation

Thanks to Adam for Bitsy, Max for Image To Bitsy,  and David for the bitsymuse hack
