Faith Fighter


2 December 2008


Faith Fighter is provocatively promoted as a cathartic tool, a game that allows the players to give vent to their religious hate by controlling their favourite icon. Players will inevitably be seduced to use characters that do not represent their own beliefs, establishing a sort of conflicting link with the avatar. This religious interchangeability that necessarily leads to the same scenario of destruction and violence, addresses the passage from the “freedom of religion” to the “freedom from religion”. The attempt is to create a hybrid object that is at the same time uncomfortable to handle and hard to attack. The game doesn’t make any negative statement against any religion in particular. It represents a configurable conflict between several religious entities, a conflict in which the collateral victims are inevitably the humans.
