Tale of Tales

Tale of Tales is a games development studio, founded by Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn in Belgium in 2003. Auriea and Michael have been close collaborators since 1999 as Entropy8Zuper! making websites and Internet artworks. Their goal with Tale of Tales is to explore the potential of the video games medium as an artistically expressive form of entertainment, exploring and expanding the use of realtime 3d as an artform. Their games have been thrice selected as finalists for the Independent Games Festival, San Francisco. And their work has been a featured selection of the IndieCade International Festival of Independent Games. They have exhibited widely, including at the Laboral Centro Del Arte in Gijon, Spain, the Artefact Festival in Leuven, Belgium; the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City; and The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis; as well as a solo show of their games and net art at the Inmerso Cyberlounge Museo Tamayo, Mexico City. Funding history includes a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, an Emerging Artists/Emergent Medium Grant from the Jerome Foundation, and the SFMoMA prize for Excellence in Online Art.
