Artist's statement:-

My final year project is a 3D computer game, it is based loosely around the J.G Ballard novel “Hello America”. The game is set in a possible future where fossil fuels are depleted and people have reverted back to a simpler way of life, also climate change has completely altered the face of the globe. The main mode of transport is by horse and this will form the main gameplay mode. There is a theme of friendship between the player and the horse thought the game, as you do more with the horse, your friendship increases and greater skills and features become available. The computer game will also make use of real consequences for player actions.
