Club Baths is part first person exploration game and part interactive poetry set in a bathhouse. As you wander into the dim but colourfully lit space, you encounter a world of strange temporalities, gay love letters and campiness, all of which blurs the contours of reality with the wet slippery surfaces of fantasmatic.
Club Baths is about falling in love and falling out of love all in the span of one evening.
Partly inspired by Operation Soap, a raid against multiple gay bathhouses in Toronto, Canada on February 5th, 1981. Club Baths explores gaming conventions by challenging player choice and game narrative.
First version will be available for download on Itch in mid-September 2019.
