Tank and Supertank and Mutant and Berserk

Victor Sui See-Le‘s Tank and Supertank and Mutant and Berserk is a hack of Quake II. The setup is similar to a previous work of the artist, Children of the Bureaucrats of the Revolution: two computers are joined together in a local game network, and two video monitors display the separate viewpoints of two performers who, this time, are the monsters of the game. These animations show one of the possible combinations, Tank against Mutant:
