[B]An new interactive game exhibit has hit the Vancouver East Cultural Centre that is part multiplayer experience and part interactive theater. The result is more [I]The Sims[/I] than [I]Call of Duty 4[/I], with 200 people involved in the experience.[/B]

Each audience member navigates an anonymous avatar, interacting with a panel of on-stage experts — an electronic artist, a game tester, a politician and a traffic flagger.

Taking its inspiration from Vancouver's gaming industry, BestLand evolves and devolves as the audience clashes and collaborates while making personal, social and political decisions.[/INDENT] Tim Carlson, a Vancouver playwright, was familiar with the production company creating the perfomance and was excited when he heard they were coming to Vancouver.
