Welcome to my new weekly feature where I have cool artists and friends who happen to wear SEIBEI talk about themselves.
SEIBEI PROFILES - Merritt Kopas
Who are you and what do you do?
1. I’m merritt kopas (dire dire deer) and I make videogames. Most of my games aren’t about dudes shooting other dudes! They’re about like, being alone on an alien planet and getting some peace and quiet, or like, hugging people and changing the world. I think games have all kinds of potential that we’re only just starting to tap! I also write and talk about games and play whenever people give me the chance and I just started making electrotwee music under the name Side Pony of the Month Club.
What is your favorite SEIBEI tee?
2. BARA FANTASY is my fav that I wear on a regular basis. I like the design work and also it’s one of those t-shirts that’s like, a secret code, only instead of being like ‘oh, you also know about nerd culture’ it’s like ‘ah, you are also an admirer of burly homoeroticism.’ This one time years ago a barista heard my name as ‘Bara’ and wrote that on my drink and it was maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to me? I was also super lucky to get Michael DeForge’s CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE in a three ghosts pack. It ended up being a little tight on me so I made a sick backpatch out of it.
What are you working on now?
3. I’m editing a book called VIDEOGAMES FOR HUMANS that’s an anthology of games made in Twine and I’m really stoked about it! We’re collecting all these works of interactive fiction and then having other game makers, writers, and designers play through them and write commentary, so you’ll sort of get to look over these really rad people’s shoulders as they play through some super important and compelling games made by a really wide range of folks. It’s gonna rule and everyone should definitely get over to Instar Books to read more about it and the other projects they’re working on.
