OhHeckYeah is a community project employing artwork to help local communities visualize new futures and better lifestyles. OHY is turning the notable downtown Denver – between 14th street and the 16th street mall- into a massive public street arcade. Incorporating LED screens, projections, custom games, street art, and social media, this urban arcade will allow players to use their smartphones and their bodies as the controllers, making it a gaming experience for everyone!

Champa Street will be filled with fun and excitement; the two city blocks will display custom street art and structures all to better merge the gamer to the game world. This project is more than just a conglomerate of sci-fi nerds and gaming kids, it is a way to build trustworthy bonds with strangers in the community. It is also a way to help people express their innovative ideas and inspire them to create a happier environment.

In collaboration with the Denver Theatre District, Downtown Denver Partnership, Legwork Studio and Mode Set, OhHeckYeah is looking for backers on Kickstarter from now till October 26th.

Check out OHY for yourself and see if it is something you would want to take part in.
