Play OverviewPlay Overview

Downpour (2024) is a quick and creative way to make games on your phone. You collage photos, drawings and text into branching narratives. Your games can then be shared in the app or via a web browser. It stands out for the power of putting game-making in the hands of everyday people, as you can see in the homely, moving and intriguing stories already being told.

It's a novel way to reframe how we see games, who makes them and what they can be about. Anyone can make a game on their phone in minutes and all sorts of new creators can bubble up. Using photos, drawings and text to create games is as simple as posting on TikTok or Instagram. You can style and decorate pages to make them your own without any coding.

The result is a super easy way into game-making. You aren't forced to make an account and it even works offline.
