Cucchi – A Must Play For Any Art Fan

An artistically experimental game

Enzo Cucchi is an Italian painter and a key member of the Italian Transavanguardia movement. The movement was at its peak during the 1980s and was part of the worldwide movement of Neo-Expressionist painters. But why Mamma S are you writing about this I hear you ask? Have I lost my marbles or have I mixed up my editorials? Well, neither (I hope) are the case. There is a video game out called Cucchi and yes, you have guessed correctly, it features Enzo Cucchi’s work.

Published by Fantastico Studio and developed by Julian Palacios of the “Eremo Collective” it is an experience that will form a unique perspective and a “gamified archive” of Enzo Cucchi’s work.

Cuccchi is a game where you explore beautiful dioramas and go through dangerous and trippy labyrinths, in a journey inside the paintings of Enzo Cucchi.

Since the late ’70s, Enzo Cucchi has worked with many kinds of techniques and materials, creating a wide and diverse imaginary that has now been transformed into an impossible videogame chimera.

Cucchi features

  • 7 unique levels, each one inspired by different artworks
  • A distinctive visual style that plays with different 3D techniques
  • A mix of exploration and maze-like gameplay
  • 51 hidden objects to collect and defend from danger which
  • Each hidden object unlocks a painting in an archive/gallery of Enzo Cucchi’s art
  • An electronic/lo-fi soundtrack that will appeal to fans of Boards of Canada, Four Tet, múm

Cucchi was released on the 30th July 2021 on PC and Nintendo Switch
