Cold War Hangover
"Cold War Hangover" is a cooperative game for five players for a public event: a experimental games show designed to be played on a platform of five pressure pads that are stepped on. The event had place in a former swimming pool, now a galery, in Berlin.
In the game, each player takes control of the water that´s inside of one of the five bottles. The five players have to synchronise to create waves that move a mine that floats in the water.
It is a failed experiment. The design was made blindly, not having access to the final platform so it was impossible to playtest. The mechanics turned out to be too complex for its context.
