Summary
POP: Methdology Experiment One is an experimental game in the most literal sense. The game was purposefully built in way that explores a different approach to the typical game development pipeline. It was developed by first composing the music and running with the first game concept that happened to emerge during that creative process. In POP, the player plays through a series of erratic minigames stylistically tied with the music. The vignettes are interconnected by idiosyncratic videos creating a purposefully disjointed experience.

Between the flat, pastel video clips, the game sections become vivid, even psychedelic.

If you've ever wondered what it's like to shoot down bomber planes, race a Ferrari in a Volvo or fly a space ship while on acid, POP might offer the insight you need.

Already becoming a fond blurry image in my memory, it stands to reason that Lach has hypnotized me into loving this game.

Mais là où cette saga made in Nintendo propose des épreuves clairement définis, le titre de Rob Lach se diffère de son collègue en offrant l’opportunité aux joueurs de réaliser des mini-jeux tous plus étranges les uns que les autres.
