SPACE: A Galaxy Trail is a video play-along board game inspired by Atmosfear, the bestselling 1991 VHS board game.
The objective of the game is to work together to save your spaceship from being pulled into the orbit of a mysterious planet known only as Timmmmmmmm. Using Atmosfear as a starting point, the Society of Explorers have collaborated with Peter Martin to develop a new game that’s true to the format and limitations of the VHS original. They’ve also held workshops with artist Mute to develop the game’s design, and musician Pete Murch to develop a score inspired by 1990s game design.
Site Gallery’s Society of Explorers is a collective of young people aged 14–19, who meet regularly in the gallery to collaborate, discuss and create. They work with artists and the gallery team to get involved in the artistic programme and to develop projects, events and ideas.
Peter Martin is an artist and filmmaker based in Sheffield. His work looks at the agency held by materials, content, artefacts and digital assets and how these can be re-examined and used as a starting point to make propositions about our lived experiences.
