Due to the public’s fascination of walking dead and zombie games, Capcom opened a temporary human butcher shop in the Smithfield meat market in East London. Don’t worry folks, it’s not human meat!
This past weekend the human butcher shop open to promote the latest Resident Evil installment, resident Evil 6. Fans of the movie, and unsuspecting passersby, were treated to the delectably gory world of the fictional butcher in the game, Wesker & Son, who has a ravenous appetite for human flesh.
Fans can even go a step further and attend two days of lectures at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum, where they can explore some of the themes from the game and how they link up to real life. Dr. Morgaine Gaye, a food futurologist, will discuss future trends in human food consumption and explore cannabalism through history. Prof. John Oxford, one of the world’s leading virologists, will discuss viruses and examine whether or not the game’s infamous C-Virus could ever truly become a reality — let’s hope not.
