Game Installation, 2009
In cooperation with Jonas Hansen, Thomas Hawranke, Karin Lingnau, Marek Plichta, and Jakob Penca
eight+ a synaesthetic user-generated content post-new-rave multiplayer shooter in 2D.
eight+ is an anarchic mix of rhythm, action, sounds and visuals provoking the conventions of standardized content and feedback loops in computer games. In this multiplayer game, players shoot at objects drawn live by other players. The longer they interact, the more distortion emerges. The borders between parties blur as ever more content is created and destroyed. The installation explores the social behaviors of groups as well as the limits of game design.
eight+ was commissioned by play09 festival, Potsdam. It was exhibited at AMAZE.Interact at Club Transmediale 2010 and gamescom 2010.
