I have written the narrative and am designing the gameplay of a computer game that shares the same name as this painting.

I commenced studying Computer Game Design at TAFE last year and am completing the Cert IV. I want to explore the options that have emerged over recent years for showing/displaying paintings that exist alongside of the usual gallery setting.

The landing page of a computer game is called a splash page, and this is what the painting The Book Of the Divine Insects is.

Each of the three levels of the game is presided over by an insect god: (from left) Sepa (centipede), Khepera (scarab) and Abyt (praying mantis). Separate paintings are in the works for each of these levels.

Below are early model assets I have created for the game using (primarily) Maya.
