Eight+ is an user-generated-content-post-new-rave-multiplayer-shooter, that we developed at the play09 game lab in Potsdam last december. Now it will be shown at the Amaze Interact Festival at Club Transmediale 10 from January 29th till Februari 6th 2010.
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.
