All the Queen’s Horses (2019) is a browser-based game. The player is cast as Queen Elizabeth II and charged with gifting horses to various kings, dictators, and regimes in order to generate arms sales. The work gamifies the interconnected nature of; the UK monarchy, soft power, the arms trade, atrocities commited by regimes (e.g. Bahrain and Saudi Arabia), and the refugee crisis, amongst other socio-political phenomena.
