What is New Lethes?

New Lethes is an experimental first person exploration game. It examines the role of architecture and geography in human life through the lens of Situationist theory. New Lethes is an example of truly environmental storytelling, in which the environment is both the medium of narrative and the central protagonist.

Who were the Situationists?

The Situationists were a group of European intellectuals, loosely associated from the 1950s to the 1970s. Although their later work had a much wider focus, their early analysis was primarily on architecture and geography. In this area, they had two key insights. First, our environment influences us in a multitude of subtle ways, most of which we do not notice. Second, our environment reproduces relations of power which are dominant in broader society. New Lethes explores both of these theories.
