About the story
12 February 2005 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

It is interesting how everybody was astonished by the visualization in Katedra and in this one. And nobody dig into the story behind. But Beginsky's stories are more than just an add on to the graphics.

This masterpiece tells us how some individuals can decide about life and death, and what the army really is. Soldiers are just a tool to achieve the goal of the art called WAR.

While the Katedra is more the critique to the church. The man is alone and when the church shows him the 'light' he's captured forever.

In my opinion Beginski tries to describe the problems in a more subtle way with great visualization and 3D graphics.
