To celebrate the release of Anonygon Studio’s new game Ascended Saga, Armored Gopher Games is hosting a showing of artwork by Krystal Harper. The artwork exhibited is an eclectic mixture of naturalist documentation and fanciful daydreaming all centered around the fantasy world of Asura where Ascended Saga takes place.
The game release and reception is Saturday, April 5th at 5:00pm. During the reception, Ascended Saga will be released for sale, and the Ascended Saga Kickstarter, a crowd sourcing event for raising funds to print the three hardback game books, will open. The Kickstarter offers a wide range of incentives including signed books with custom artwork, full digital copies of the books ahead of printing, and even the massive original map of Asura created by Krystal.
Anonygon Studios is an indie game company based in Urbana, Illinois and run by Justin and Krystal Harper, Parker Norman, and Mike Stowe.
Armored Gopher Games is a local game store in Urbana, Illinois focused not only on selling quality games, but on bringing the community together through fundraising, sponsorship, and providing a safe and open game space for people to meet and share the games they love.

Parsing Desire – Exhibition Dates: March 2 – March21

Parsing Desire Showcases work by current MFA students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, assembled from heirlooms, gathered on expeditions, collaged from site-specific locations, or autobiographical. These works span the gamut of mediums, methods, and practices to negotiate the experiential traces and fractures of embodiment, fantasy, memory, sexuality, history, craft, ritual. Together, the communicate: longing, always wanting, never having completely, or missing entirely. A study in haunting desire, hopes, and wishes.
2014 MFA Chicago Show
