The core of the game is to simulate the reproduction mechanism of the urban village. We obtained 39 mechanism samples from 18 urban villages in Shenzhen .Through summarizing these samples into different modules; we try to write a program to show the "system" behind the chaotic picture.The game is designed with eight scenes, which is linked by a storyline. These spontaneous growing modules exist like microbes, unknowingly changing the nature of the soil. In the course of the game,players will find urban village is not an object, it is the process.The urban village may not be an inherently logical body, but have great potential for ductility and adaptability. Through this game, we hope to present its potential value.
