“For the fifth year A MAZE. is welcoming african and international independent game developers, artists, forward thinkers, vr designers and digital activists in Johannesburg to exchange tools, skills and ideas in the fields of independent games and playful media. This year we like to create positive chaos!" --- Thorsten S. Wiedemann, founder and director of A MAZE.

A MAZE. / Johannesburg is also a public event. Open arcade with the best selection of amazing independent videogames and alternative games with weird controllers. We bring together what belongs together. Games, music and people. 

A MAZE. / Johannesburg is an annual evolving platform for african and international playful media artists. Also a playground for everyone who wants to experience the magic of the Human-Human-Machine interaction.

A MAZE. provides an intensive 3-day program with talks, workshops, panels, hypertalks, screenings, artistic games, VR experiences, playful installations, concerts, av performances and party in the heart of Johannesburg, Braamfontein. 

Since A MAZE. is the first festival of that kind in Africa we have the responsibility to create a platform that grows from inside to secure the longterm goals like a national funding systems, more and effective international collaborations between universities, institutions, cultural agencies, studios and creatives

Thanks due the funding by the City of Johannesburg we’re also able to create one A MAZE. Pop up in Soweto.

I am part of the french game collective called One Life Remains. 6 years ago, we started to show videogames where they were not supposed to be, which means a lot of places : art centers, libraries, music festivals. It changed the nature of videogames we made : it became installations with destructible or gigantic gamepads, videomapping, laser pointers. But showcasing your work in this kind of place offers another opportunity : you can create different versions of the same game. This talk will be about La Discipline du Rectangle, a game created firstly created for the A MAZE Pop up at Clujotronic (Romania), and currently exhibited in 7 different versions at La Fondation du Doute, Blois, France.
