A new game debuts following the recent Monet masterpiece damage scandal
'Punch a Monet' and stay out of jail...
Following the news that the perpetrator of the violent assault on a Claude Monet masterpiece, back in 2012 at the National Gallery Ireland, has been sentenced to 5 years of jail time, we bring you the news that a new game has been released to simulate the attack – without the threat of an arrest.
The Monet painting that sustained a hefty right hook to the top corner has since been diligently restored to its former glory, and with the man responsible for the bizarre out burst safely behind bars, a game developer has launched ‘Punch a Monet’.
The game sees an extended fist ready for impact from a first person point of view. Using the mouse pad, the player can take their aim and punch the digital replica of Monet’s Argenteuil Basin with a Single Sailboat.
