The Art of Video Games: “Flower” Exhibition Video
The original idea for “Flower” was inspired by Chen’s move from Shanghai to California. Growing up in a sprawling urban center, he had never experienced the green, rolling hills that he saw on the west coast. He wanted to develop a game that would give players the same experience, allowing them to bring nature into their homes in an interactive way. Playing “Flower” inspires peace, wonder, joy, freedom, and even sadness in a way that no video game has ever done before.
