Inspired by the concept of the many scratch and win contests, Husin paints the now-extinct game of tikam nombor that was a keen favourite amongst the village kids. Available in the heydays at the local kedai runcit (Malay for convenience store), village kids frequently hung out at these stores, trying their hand at the game in hopes of winning their favourite toy or gift.
Gores Dan Kena proves to be interesting vantage point, granting an actual life-size viewpoint of the game for the player. Simultaneously, Gores Dan Kena presents itself as a documentary heritage of the long forgotten game that was once a favourite among the kids of the heydays. And as the country progresses and evolves, it lies as an interesting concept how simplistic the tikam nombor game has evolved to today’s scratch and win contests.
