The world is over, and it’s too late to be a survivor⋯
You’ve already gotten infected!
Actually, that feels great!

NEW YORK – This Saturday, Fou Gallery is delighted to invite you to join an interactive Zombie Game Night featuring Zombies Shall Not Pass! designed by independent game designer Hu Wengu. The game event accompanies our current exhibition - Siyuan Tan: Face Off, examining the confrontation between virtual and physical spaces.

As a game designer, Wengu Hu tried to create a game simulator based on classic zombie films. In Zombies Shall Not Pass!, the participants actually become the zombie. By using the Leap Motion Controller, participants can cast hands into the virtual reality world to play this game with "real-life" zombie poses. The design of augmented reality will significantly enhance the gaming experience.

“Games are a great way to create immersive content. That is, through playing, players can get a glimpse of the developer's inner world, and build up communications between beyond time and space. According to my personal experience, games are a medium of beauty. Moreover, the game is literally playable, which is not like most artworks that cannot be touched. Programming is its structure, its skeleton; art design is its flesh and blood; music and sound is the atmosphere; and in the end, the game designer endows it with soul; not a single element can be excluded. I believe that I can convey my feelings and views through my games.” ——Hu Wengu

Sound exciting? Then let's party! Dancing, hopping, ambush survivors and eat brains this Saturday in Fou Gallery!

僵尸病毒大爆发!想当幸存者?已经太迟了!

既然如此,不如加入僵尸派对,带着新朋友们去取缔那些幸存者私搭乱建的据点!

纽约 – 本周六,否画廊诚邀你来参加独立游戏设计师胡文谷策划的互动数字游戏体验《僵尸禁行曲》。本次活动与画廊目前的展览《谈思远:单挑》相呼应,进一步打破了虚拟和现实的界限。参与者将穿戴体感设备,用肢体语言参与一场虚拟城市中僵尸与人类之间的“单挑”。

在游戏中,设计师胡文谷试图建立一个关于经典僵尸电影的模拟器。在游戏中,参与者将变身为僵尸,利用动作感应传感器,将双手置入虚拟现实世界,通过显着增强模拟器的体验,在现实生活中采用僵尸的姿势参与游戏。

“游戏之于我,是一种创作的表现形式。相对动画或者漫画,游戏能带来更强的浸入式体验。通过游玩,玩家瞥见游戏制作者心中所造世界的一角,并参与其中。游戏这种形式能够建立起一种跨越时空距离的交流,让作者和玩家各有所悟。在我个人的游戏设计思路当中,游戏开发是作为一个整体来进行的。将游戏当作一个艺术品来看的话,程序组成了其骨骼,美术增添其皮肉,音乐渲染其氛围,而游戏策划赋予其灵魂——每一项都必不可少。” ——胡文谷

想要与游戏设计师一起畅游僵尸世界吗?那就这周六来否画廊来一场僵尸狂欢夜吧!
