A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Yvain! est un jeu vidéo – une œuvre à jouer – d’Éric Giraudet de Boudemange, développé en collaboration avec le créateur de jeu vidéo Tomavatars, suite à sa résidence avec La Criée centre d’art contemporain. Ce jeu d’aventure expérimental à la première personne s’inspire d’un passage du roman Yvain, le Chevalier au Lion de Chrétien de Troyes, écrit au XIIe siècle. Le cœur brisé, le chevalier Yvain fuit la civilisation. Il s’enfonce dans la forêt, quittant ses habits, perdant la parole et la raison. Dans cette interprétation contemporaine, nous guidons le personnage principal, au rythme de sa complainte, à travers un univers médiéval absurde et décalé, au croisement de l’amour courtois et de Game of Thrones.

__________

Yvain! is a video game - an artwork to be played - by artist Éric Giraudet de Boudemange, developed in collaboration with game designer Tomavatars. The project follows his residency with La Criée centre for contemporary art. This first experimental adventure game is inspired by a passage from the novel Yvain, the Knight to the Lion by Chrétien de Troyes, written in the twelfth century. Heartbroken, Yvain the knight flees civilization. He sinks into the forest, leaving his clothes, losing the use of speech and reason. In this contemporary interpretation, we guide the main character, at the paste of his lament, through an absurd and offbeat medieval universe, at the crossroads of courtly love and Game of Thrones.

Can I play/enjoy your two games without knowing the language?

Hi there. There are two versions: french an d english. Is it ok?

I love this aesthetic in general, and had a great time here. As the game goes on, the love object seems to become increasingly dissected and exploded out into the landscape, which is very cool. I felt less and less sympathetic towards the narrator, which may well be intentional. Generally a great little journey through a well-articulated headspace.

Thank you so much!
