Mu Cartographer

For thousands of video games the heads-up-display (or HUD) is a utilitarian feature. The HUD is typically made up of graphic overlays that display scores, dialog, map positions or other game information that makes play more salient. The HUD is conventionally designed as a support; a secondary structure that is meant to disappear as you explore the diegetic world underneath. In Mu Cartographer Titouan Millet made a game that focuses on the HUD as much as, if not more than, the landscape. Mu Cartographer's extraordinary reversal of the conventional handling of overlays opens up a novel field of HUD-based symbolic expression. Millet has taken an experimental approach to user-interface elements, treating them as intricate mutable pictograms that form an interactive alien language for exploration.

However, as a 2D composition Millet takes us past the HUD that one must tinker with in the game and brings us straight to the territory it manipulates. In a sense we are given the reward for learning Millet's language in a single moment. Here in Mu Colors, Millet gives us a menu of his color treated landscapes, the reward for learning the symbolic language of Mu Cartographer.

Titouan Millet is a multimedia artist based in France. He is a part of the Klondike video game collective.
