For a coding contest where competitors had a limited amount of time to come up with a novel game that plays out in just 10 seconds, SassyBot Studio created this stressful-looking bomb defusing challenge that has players trying to figure out what wire to snip.
Bomb School took just 72 hours to create, but packs more interactivity and excitement than games that took months to develop. A projector coupled with a Kinect creates the virtual bomb on a set of boxes, which the player can explore in detail — determining how to defuse it — by moving around it. They have just 10 seconds to decide which of the three wires to cut using an Xbox controller that’s tied to a pair of virtual floating scissors, and if they make the wrong decision everything goes up in flames. And you thought Tetris was stressful. [SassyBot via Newlaunches]
