Queers in Love at the End of the World is a 10-second online game that creates an imaginary experience of fleeting intimacy with a loved one. As a timer counts down to zero, users click their way through a hypertext narrative, making rushed choices that determine the emotionally and erotically loaded final moments before “everything is wiped away.” The artist writes: “If you only had 10 seconds left with your partner, what would you do with them? What would you say? It’s a game about the transformative, transcendent power of queer love, and is dedicated to every queer I’ve loved, no matter how briefly, or for how long.”
