Realdoom

The Netherlands were shaken up by two political assassinations. After the deaths of Pim Fortuijn and Theo van Gogh nobody felt secure anymore. This installation criticizes the media emphasis on terror by exaggeration.

The game is live sized, the levels are locally filmed public environments and you play the game with your whole body wearing a real bullet free coat. Because of the powerful total immersion the fear crawls up your skin. Two players oppose each other on each site of a see trough screen. At some points in the movie normal light is used to make one player visible trough/in the movie. This is the moment to shoot and dive. Sensors and timing is used to decide whether somebody is shot or escaped. Exaggerated sound effects push the adrenaline levels. Players will be amazed of their own actions. That can be the moment to reconsider, learn and decide.
