UBERMORGEN.COM
CLICKISTAN

Launched December 2, 2010

During the summer of 2010, UBERMORGEN.COM, an artist duo composed of lizvlx and Hans Bernhard, were commissioned to create an interactive, engaging work designed to introduce a new worldwide audience to the importance of supporting the Whitney’s Annual Fund—and by extension, art in an increasingly global community. 

For a limited time, users could support the Annual Fund by playing the games included in CLICKISTAN, a work of computer game art that references early net art and classic coin-operated arcade games such as Space Invaders (1978), Donkey Kong (1981), and Pac Man (1980). As you move through levels, you’ll score points in ways that aren’t immediately obvious. The retro feel of the games will inspire the inner gamer in many, and for those visitors who are knowledgeable about the history of net art, the visit will be even more rewarding.

The CLICKISTAN soundtrack is inspired by early computer games, and is supplied by the 8-bit music website micromusic.net.
