We can do many things with games - we can learn, compete, connect, escape, and empathize (as only some verbs of many). One oft-forgotten role of games is the resolution of conflict. It is said that games are the whole of existence in utopia, but perhaps they are also a way to get there. Let us settle things with a game. Let us determine what do we do now.

Revolver 1 is a game of conflict resolution for 2 players, created in the style of a New Games game. The game blends the Meisner acting technique, formal conflict resolution, and the pleasures of Caillois's ilinx into a playful ritual experience. A solo project created at UC Santa Cruz's jam site in 48 hours for the 2015 Global Game Jam.
