Inspired by the works of the Chinese literary master Qian Zhongshu, HBG is an experimental video game, a playable life simulator in which the player, assuming the role of God, facilitates the everyday being of the different worlds inhabited by humans, beasts and ghosts. The player can choose to act as an interventionist god, creating and destroying whimsically, or simply watching the worlds unfold with minimal or no interference.
A literary adaptation in a digital and playable form, HBG is a digital canvas and an allegorical play about human existence, its dilemma and other catastrophes.
