Zugzwang, 2022, 3 mins

Zugzwang is a tactical chess-like gay sex dungeon video game inspired by the history of sex magic, censorship in the US, cruising architecture, and the poetry of Emily Dickinson. As a sex angel, you must help mankind meet each other in the neon darkness. Drink deep their juices, distill their pleasure into divinity. Desire is a labyrinth. The absence of the witch does not invalidate the spell.
