Eight+, the result of the last Play09 Game Lab, will be presented on the gamescom (18.-22.08.2010, Cologne) at the Creative Gaming booth. From the last exhibition at the AMAZE.Interact Festival the game was again completely redesigned and will now be shown as Eight++.
Eight+ a synaesthetic-user-generatedcontent-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+ is is developed by Jonas Hansen, Thomas Hawranke, Karin Lingnau, Marek Plichta, Jakob Penca and Lasse Scherffig.
