From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kokoromi is a Montreal-based group with the intent of promoting videogames as an art form, and experimental gameplay worldwide. The collective consists of game pioneers and curators Damien Di Fede, Phil Fish, Heather Kelley, and Cindy Poremba. Most of the members met in 2005, working on a small game project for a cultural event in Montreal.

Throughout its growth, Kokoromi has organized several game related shows, including the Gamma events (Gamma: Audio Feed, gamma 256 and GAMMA 3D), usually encouraging designers to consider gameplay in experimental ways. Often, these events foster new talent on the independent gaming scene. Games submitted to and launched at Gamma have included Jason Rohrer's Passage and Mark Johns' Standard Bits. The group has also designed several independent game projects that follow its unique vision.

One of the founding members of Kokoromi, Phil Fish, has formed the independent game company Polytron, for the purpose of handling the development of an upcoming game title, Fez.
