Create and play different levels by scanning the environment around you, generating unique obstacles and boundaries.
Creative collective MPU specialize in interactive projections and they have developed a fun and customizable take on the classic mobile phone game ‘Snake.’ “Snake the Planet!” adopts the game for the urban canvas using software developed in open Frameworks, which scans the environment and individually generates each level based on the facade in front of the player.
Any windows, doors or other features become boundaries and obstacles in the projected game that the player can collide with, so they need to try and avoid them. More objects can be placed and scanned in order to make the level more difficult. The game also has a multi-player mode that lets players intentionally attempt to block each other’s path in order to destroy their opponent and win. “Snake the Planet!” is shown and explained further in the video below:
