“Point of View” was influenced by many different things; Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Lund, and The Stanley Parable. In the song “Broken” by Lund (2:16) there is a sample of a quote by Alfred Armand Montapert, a famous american author, “we cannot choose the things that will happen to us. But we can choose the attitude we will take toward anything that happens.” I really enjoyed taking apart this quote and thinking about what it means to me. For Point of View I wanted to help express my analysis of the quote. That being that the only thing that we are in control of in our own lives is our attitude and perception that we take from what happens to us. We have the illusion of choice but we do not actually have free will. The name of the game is influenced by the definition of point of view: a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. Wrapping up the game quite nicely.
