Operation Jane Walk is based on the dystopian multiplayer shooter Tom Clancy's: The Division. Within the rules of the game's software, the militaristic environment is being re-used for a pacifistic city tour. The urban pedestrians avoid the combats whenever possible and become peaceful tourists of a digital replica of Midtown Manhattan. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architecture history, urbanism and the game developer's interventions into the urban fabric are being discussed.
