Explorer 98 (2002)

Explorer 98 (2002) is RTS computer game that is based on two inseparable parts of today’s fun industry: on the one side there are corporations that make computer games; and on the another one there are platforms – operating systems – on which games are played. Explorer 98 is mimicking Microsoft Windows 98 design but it is actually running its own engine, completely being build from the scratch (in programing language Dephi) and just using Microsoft visuals. The game was created during the heated debate about copyright and copyleft issues in Taiwan, being commissioned for Kingdom of Piracy project in 2002 in ADAC Centre in Taiwan that was after cancelled right before the opening of the exhibition due to the pressure by Microsoft and  Taiwanese government
