DAEMON was a cyberpunk, new media experience.
The first part of DAEMON was a game, similar to SCAD Humans VS Zombies, taking place on SCAD Savannah campus from April 15th - April 17th, with Opening Night happening on April 14th. Gameplay was live-action, using NERF-style foam blasters. Combat was squad based, with each team being limited to 5-10 players during signup. One player on each team was given a Google Cardboard headset to complete Augmented Reality challenges with their team. That player was known as the team's Decker. Team's fought one another while completing missions. This segment of DAEMON was open only to SCAD Students and Alumni.
The second part of DAEMON was a New Media gallery show, centered around glitch art, curated by the DAEMON team and headlined by local artist JON SPRINGS. This segment of DAEMON was open to anyone. Additional art from assorted glitch artists, as well as the work we did to make DAEMON reality, were featured.
DAEMON was made a reality through a successful Kickstarter, with a documentary detailing the entire experience being released to the public on September 23rd, 2017.
The original DAEMON website has been left more or less as it originally was when the game was run, for posterity purposes.
