If the name Playables doesn't ring a bell, you might recognize some of the work of its members, mainly Plug & Play and the co-operative puzzler Drei. Much like those other themed projects and puzzlers, the recently-revealed Kids is an interactive piece of art, aiming to explore the psychology of crowds.

Like the aforementioned Plug & Play, Kids will be a short experimental interactive project, using its stark aesthetic and design to delve into themes over twenty to thirty minutes. Not much has been revealed about how the mechanics will work to serve that purpose, but the game's premise describes its structure as moving "with and against crowds until everyone is gone." The crowds of hundreds and the gaping abyss amid the white landcape provide some hints of how this project will present its ideas.

Kids doesn't have a specific release date yet, but is expected to come out sometime this year, accompanined by a complementary short film. More details regarding Kids can be found on the project's official site.
