Californium Darjeeling, Nova Production / ARTE France, Neko Entertainement 2016

Explore the worlds of Californium, a first person exploration game where you are a writer trapped into shifting realities. Will you find what's behind the simulacra? It takes place in Berkeley, 1967. You are Elvin Green, a writer whose career is not better than his sentimental life. Besides, the day starts badly : your wife Thea left you a break up letter. As for Eddy, your editor, he summons you: "you are a writer who does not write" - you should find yourself another editor. Your world is falling apart. Too much acid and cheap booze? Too many sleepless nights stuck to your typewriter, powerless to tackle your first novel? Your poor mental health is collapsing. Luckily this nightmarish world is unstable, you can extract yourself from it and thus access another reality. You have nothing to lose. It's reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's 1978 novel VALIS, which explores the idea that somehow the illusory visions the protagonist suffers from have scope to reveal secrets about reality. It's not an adaptation of VALIS, but plays with Dick's ideas and themes as a much simpler video game variation – a proof-of-concept, almost – that's been brought to life by French illustrator Oliver Bonhomme.
