Music Video: Punch yourself to stay awake in this strange game from Rajeev Basu

Interactive artist and conceptual maverick Rajeev Basu’s been involved in some unusual projects in the past, from illustrated commercial drones to a Facebook hack that turns your personal page into a mighty hawk. His latest offering is as tedious as it gets though, an anti-epic piece of computer-generated purgatory that sees you stuck in an endless queue with nothing but your own will to keep you going. Like Doom and its many derivatives you can jump and strafe to avoid your foes, but this time your foes really couldn’t give less of a toss about you and the only weapon you have to stave off trouble is your own fist… which you have to use to punch ourself in the face…repeatedly. Good old-fashioned fun to get you going on a Monday morning!
