Everything is going to be OK is a remarkable audio visual extravaganza that’s played out via a virtual desktop full of beautifully animated apps that explore real life experiences such as pain, fear, trauma and recovery in interesting, surreal, humorous ways.
Everything is going to be OK is an ongoing, self-searching work of interactive art from Nathalie Lawhead, the twisted genius that brought you Anatomically Incorrect Dinosaurs and Monkey Fortunetell (among many others). It’s played out via a virtual desktop, filled with different apps that you can open, play around with and close again, each of which is a unique game/experience that explores different life experiences – often focusing on negative emotions such as adversity, pain, fear, trauma, loss and how you overcome them.
Although Everything is going to be OK focuses on serious and powerful emotions, the way it’s crafted with it’s quirky characters, high quality animation and surreal humor makes for a surprisingly funny, cathartic and uplifting experience. Nathalie is still working on the project, but you you can get lost in this virtual desktop for hours. Each app has its own message and theres TONS of cool Easter eggs to find as you play around with them. Brilliant, bonkers and thoroughly bizarre – highly recommended.
Note: Once unzipped, the game will be in the folder marked Zine.app, the other folder contains lots of cool bonus material
