I had a ton of fun wearing a few different hats on this project. I was mostly responsible for the motion and animation concepts in the game as well as guiding the user experience. I also got to create the original soundtrack for the game.
AMD came to us wanting to showcase their new high powered microcomputer, the Gizmoboard. We came back with a show-stopping interactive game that wowed the crowds at Engadget events in New York and Boston.
Based on the arcade classic Pong, our game, Enter the Gizmosphere, pitted two foes in a battle to the proverbial death. Players bounced a virtual sphere back and forth through our 3D environment, all in an effort to defend their turf. And just to show off, we even created the full soundtrack to the game.
Utilizing Pixy cameras, Unity, custom 3D printed paddles, and a couple massive displays, our game was run on the Gizmoboard, proving its power. At the end of the project, we were happy, AMD was impressed, and crowds were left wanting to play another round.
