Lexie Mason-Davis & Jon Tree - Another Island
Freeplay is the world’s longest-running independent games festival, located in Melbourne, Australia.
Another Island explores communication in isolation by letting players write and draw messages to one another on a serene island. Players won’t know who receives their messages or if they have even been read. Explore a deserted island and write and draw letters to send out to sea. Sometimes, you may even get a reply.
Lexie is an artist and game developer from the United States who now calls Melbourne home. They like to bring stories to life in their artworks, but mostly they just like to make things, whatever those things may be. A not insignificant part of their time is spent looking for good sunscreens.
Jon is a composer and game developer living in Melbourne. He spends his time perpetually catching up on music, books and films he never got around to watching when they came out. Later, he'll talk about them endlessly to friends he's not sure care about them quite as much as he does. His current focus is on texture in both music and games, and how to use these aspects of a work to convey a specific mood.
