Created by Mylene Dreyer while at ECAL, Incontroller is a game designed where the difficulty level in the game increases in the controller while the software remains the same.
In most of the case, digital games are composed of two entities, a computer (the software part) and a controller (the hardware). During the game, hardware part always stay the same while the software make the play evolved, with different levels of difficulty. But what if the difficulty came from the other part, from the hardware?
Earlier this year at ECAL (Lausanne/Switzerland), students were asked to develop projects using the Thymio robot during a one week workshop. Students worked then in group with the task to make Thymio(s) write a word, all those words was then put together to form a sentences that you can discover in the video below.
