Phoenix Interact Labs Bursary Project

As part of the Interact Labs Bursary Project I created a table top arcade system based on devices used in the Arcade Pack created with Isotonik Studios.

The installation uses a Launchpad Pro by Novation, 4 x USB NES style control pads and a modded version of the Asteroids device running in Ableton Live.

The interaction is loosely based on the game play of the original Asteroids arcade game and Bomberman. Up to 4 players control a single moving object around an 8×8 grid. Clashing with other players causes note triggers, pressing fire buttons drops ‘bombs’ which will also trigger notes and slow other players down.
