Abstract

The newest game in the Resident Evil franchise, Village, reimagines fungal ecology as monstrous with a sentient fungus partnered with a determined mother at the game’s centre; but unfortunately, rather than exposing critical fault lines in our cultural engagement with the nonhuman world, the game sinks to new depths of ecophobia and reverts to a fallacy of solving complex ecological problems with hypermasculine violence.
