Bill Viola

The Night Journey, 2010

– video game/art project based on the universal story of an individual mystic’s journey toward enlightenment
– The interactive design attempts to evoke in the player’s mind a sense of the archetypal journey of enlightenment through the “mechanics” of the game experience – i.e. the choices and actions of the player during the game
–  The core mechanic in the game is the act of traveling and reflecting rather than reaching certain destinations – the trip along a path of enlightenment
