Mikhail Maksimov's latest game Infinite Graveyard: Resurrection Delivery - a sequel to Infinite Graveyard - casts the player in the role of the pilot of a cemetery delivery drone tasked to deliver coffins to uninhabited graves, dodge obstacles, collect power-ups, and compete against players from around the world with an online leader board.
I cannot think of a more timely project and a (not so) nuanced critique of current events.
Mikhail Maksimov is an artist and filmmaker whose practice revolves around game engines, 3D graphics, algorithms, and neural networks. Among his most recent (and radical) projects is SAR, Sanatorium Anthropocene Retreat! (formerly known as MOMAM, Museum of Modern Art Massacre), a dystopian first-person shooter set in the artworld and inspired by the writing of Bruno Latour and Donna Haraway.
