Art Assault, the Tate Modern London Level.
'Best Game Ever!' - Hrag Vartanian, editor, Hyperallergic.
Art Assault is a game where famous artists kill eachother in levels based on real galleries and museums, like PS1 in New York. It is a graphic modification of a free open source FPS game, Assault Cube. The computer controlled bots are named after the 150 most successful living artists according to artfacts.net. In Team Deathmatch mode the bots and the player are randomly parted into two teams, Inside and Outside, competing for domination of the exhibition space. The maps in the game are based on real life artist run galleries or alternative museums. The textures for the maps are all based on original photos, mostly from the actual place depicted.
The work is best shown as a wall projection, showing a level modelled after the space where the work is shown.
