DefaultProperties (2011)

This “self-playing” game depicts a twitching, chubby figure with a horrible skin disease apparently lost in prayer in a Northern European medieval landscape next to a bored man in furs idling by the river with a flaming sword. Meanwhile the sky is filling with a swirling extra-dimensional portal from which is emerging a astral being of unknown but seemingly royal nature.

Full Description

The first in a series of re-interpretations of Late Medieval Northern European religious paintings, DefaultPropeties is a non-interactive, animated recreation of the baptism scene from the Triptych of Jean des Trompes by Gerard David from 1505 using current game development technology and visual styles.
