Uma Breakdown Animal Agency

Uma Breakdown is an artist, writer and researcher who uses horror studies, feminist literature and queer role-playing games to create art. For FACT Together, Uma has created Animal Agency, an online game inspired by the concept of the ‘ahuman’.

This is the idea that animals should not only be recognised by their relationships with, or differences from, humans, but as beings in their own right. Uma’s game is a stylistic departure from their usual interactive fiction, but still relies heavily upon text. Throughout, the player will navigate the ecosystems of a near future, focusing on the non-human relationships which hold everything together.
