First Person Walkthrough Adventure Game, 2017 is a workshop which was first introduced to the PACTO group at the Bark Art Residency in Athens. This workshop uses the instagram live feature as the framework for an performative video game. In the original workshop the artist separated workshop participants into two teams, one of which would stay indoors, and another other which would venture outside followed by a cameraman on instagram live.

While the indoor group (or the players) would have the power to delegate tasks to the outdoor group (or the avatars), the outdoor group was freer in the sense that they could leave the indoor space, however their actions were restricted by the indoor groups decision making, so long as they were in front of the camera.

First Person Walkthrough Adventure Game aims to explore the act of living vicariously through virtual media. Incorporating concepts of avatar performance though a vidio-game framework.
