Studio Waterzooi is an immersive experience game studio based in Brussels, Belgium. We develop low threshold narrative driven games inspired by literature, culture, philosophy, society and art, with a focus on ‘the human condition’.
Inspired by Pietro Righi Riva’s Manifesto Rejecta, Thomas Meynen founded Studio Waterzooi. The manifest aims to provide guidelines to develop games for a new audience.
He (and we) want to advance the medium in a certain direction that makes it interesting to people that are not normally interested in video games but have other interests such as art, culture, humanity..etc (or are interested but don’t find games about specific topics that interest them). We have to cater to these people and learn how to make games for them so games can eventually become the art-form it deserves to be.
'On The Edge' was made with Ennio Dal Farra in 48h on the Blending Game Jam.
‘Please, Touch The Artwork’ is Studio Waterzooi’s first title and will be release on Win, Mac, iOS and Android the second half of 2019.
