We already warned you, so it should be no surprise that Paul Steen’s art world-ized open source video game based on Assault Cube, but injected with 150 of the “most important living artists” according to Artfacts.net, is awesome.

In his virtual world you can roam PS1 or the Istanbul Biennial or at a Jeff Wall show at the Kunstwerk in Berlin gunning down famous artist to win the game. This isn’t a kumbaya game, people. You need to kill to win.

But I have to admit that there’s nothing more fulfilling than reading “Damien Hirst fragged Jasper Johns.” Download the “Art Assault” modification here: paulsteen.se/aa.html And enjoy!
