The Indifferent Wonder of an Edible Place is a beautiful, surreal and thought provoking game where you become a building eater, tasked with erasing the buildings and the history of a city.
Drawing inspiration from post colonial literature the demolition of Babri Masjid, The Indifferent Wonder of an Edible Place is another mesmerizing experience from Studio Oleomingus, set in a strange Indian themed land based on the works of a fictional poet called Mir UmarHassan. The game sees you taking on the role of a municipal building eater, who makes a living eating buildings in a land where history itself is edible. Your character is clearly ashamed of his profession, but there is little other work and he hungers for food. Like it or not he is complicit in helping to make an entire city vanish from history bite by bite.
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, The Indifferent Wonder of an Edible Place is a visually stunning and surreal experience that shows how malleable history is. After a place has been consumed and turned into dust, how long until people forget it was there in the first place? Highly recommended.
